South West English Regional Network: Who gives a physio!

#physiotalk on 26 March 2018. Making the most of social media to learn, share and influence

  • You’re stressed.
  • Too much work.
  • The CSP wants to communicate with you. 
  • Tell us how?

This chat on Monday 26th March is hosted by the CSP South West Regional network @cspsouthwest but they would like to invite anyone to join in – all views welcomed as the issues will be similar wherever you work!

The Chartered Society of Physiotherapy have 10 English regional networks for all members in England. Members can be qualified, associates, students and retired. Your network is supported by a core group of members who volunteer their time to organise the network activities, its forums and other events. Regional networks organise regional forums for all members four times a year.

The aims of the South West regional network are:

Working with local members or activists to promote and champion campaigns which are being led from central CSP e.g. First Contact Physio Practitioners, Rehab Matters, Older Persons Day
Act as a forum for networking and discussion to promote and drive the profession forward representing the interests of regional members
To shape and relay CSP policy acting as a voice for South West members
Recognise and promote local successes and innovations, sharing new and evidence based clinical and cost effective Physiotherapy practice to transform, empower and influence the Profession.

The South West English Regional Network (SWERN) covers: Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly, Devon, Somerset, Avon, Dorset and Gloucestershire & Wiltshire. This Tweet chat will provide the opportunity to connect with a large number of our CSP SWERN members. We recognise that, whilst the majority of clinicians are under extreme pressure and resilience is low, there is little time for professional development within the clinical day. Clinicians are having to prioritise their clinical CPD over engaging with wider professional issues. During the Tweetchat we would like to discuss what the SWERN is and how we can work together with members to drive the profession forward.

To consider ahead of the chat:

Give us a Trip Advisor style report on any engagement that you have had with the SWERN.
We need member engagement – be brave! What can you do to transform, empower and influence?
What are you professionally proud of and how do we raise its profile from the South West?

We look forward to seeing you on Twitter!
