The Society was formed to promote research in physiotherapy. We encourage high quality research relevant to physiotherapy practice and education and we foster critical awareness throughout the profession. Our main activity is hosting a research conference every Spring.
The Aims of the Society
The Society promotes research in physiotherapy, so that a firm scientific knowledge base is developed, from which more effective physiotherapy practice may be delivered and patient services enhanced. We encourage high quality research relevant to physiotherapy practice and education and help foster critical awareness throughout the profession.
The Society aims to disseminate the results of research both within the profession and beyond.
What we do that others don't!
There are a number of other organisations that exist to support research in physiotherapy and related fields - for example, the Allied Health Professions Research Network. However, we are the only CSP affiliated research group that hosts a research conference and has dissemination of research as a prime aim. By providing a platform for novice researchers across a wide range of topics, we enable support networks to be built and valuable national and inter-national links to be established.
Our Annual Conference
Our Annual Spring conference is the main vehicle through which we promote and support research activity. See the separate page for more details.
