Happy New Year from Physiospot!

As Editor of Physiospot I would just like to take this opportunity to wish all our readers a very happy, healthy and prosperous new year for 2011!  This year we are looking to move Physiospot forward, we hope to bring you bigger news, bigger articles and reports ‘from the field’.  We are also looking to expand the team and truly make this resource a collaborative effort of physiotherapists and physical therapists from all over the world.

Physiospot has been a labour of love since it started in 2006.  The inaugural Physiospot blog, Physiospot Musculoskeletal, was set up as a way to keep up to date and continue with my professional development whilst taking a break from clinical practice.  Physiospot now covers a multitude of clinical areas and aims to bring you all the recent and clinically relevant news, research, events, jobs and publications.  It continues to be free to our readers and remains a non-profit enterprise.  I can honestly say that it has been an amazing way to keep in touch with everything that is going on in the world of physiotherapy and to contribute to continuing professional development.  Researching for articles also leads me into other health arenas and helps to broaden my understanding of health care issues and developments going on in the world.

It’s always difficult however to keep the momentum going whilst still getting the day job done!  As a technology specialist for health care it is always the case that my clients come first and Physiospot has to fit in around this work. As our profession takes more of an interest in the advances that technology can bring, the ‘day job’ has become busier and unfortunately Physiospot does seem to suffer.  Which some of our readers may have noticed at the end of last year!  It is for this reason that I am inviting others to join me on the team, to help to develop this project into the great resource that it has the potential to become.

If you are interested in this innovative way to continue to professionally develop, whilst also contributing to the professional development of others, why not consider joining us here on the Physiospot team.  To find out more you can email me directly here or use the contact form on this page.
