Innovations in Physiotherapy

Use the Innovations in Physiotherapy Database to inform, inspire and influence your thinking and to demonstrate the value of physiotherapy.

Quality assured physiotherapy case studies are very important. They demonstrate our expertise and our ability to innovate, adapt and deliver for patients. This is crucial in shaping and securing our future success. 


Sharing our work enables us to not only show what we can do, but helps us learn from one another's experience. For the CSP, these examples of innovation are also invaluable for our efforts to influence policy and promote the profession.

We aim, with your help, to build a valuable resource for members and the Society, that demonstrates the value of Physiotherapy. We're looking for contributions to our database. Submitting your innovation initiative raises the profile of your work, providing you with the opportunity to share and promote your successes with other physiotherapists across the UK.

Submitting an innovation 

All innovation submissions are reviewed against quality assurance criteria. This is essential, if they are to be a valuable resource to the wider profession. The format and criteria for innovations submissions is similar to accepted abstract submissions to Physiotherapy UK Conference and Trade Exhibition. Special interest report abstracts accepted for presentation at Physiotherapy UK are also added to the Innovations in Physiotherapy database. 

How we can support you

While submitting an innovation initiative is not a quick task, it is a supported process. We're here to help you showcase your work and what you have achieved in the best possible light. 

For further guidance about submitting your innovation visit our 'Submitting an innovation' page.  If you'd like to discuss or have questions please contact the project team on
