New Semester, New Projects!

Each year with the new semester we have a whole new hive of activity where our educational projects are concerned, and this year is no exception!  We are presently seeing activity in repeat projects from Queen Margaret University in Edinburgh and  Vrije Universiteit Brussel  inBelgium.

Led by Judith Lane and now in it’s second year, this project has been developed for second year students on the MSc (pre-registration) Physiotherapy programme at Queen Margaret University, Edinburgh, UK, in partial fulfilment of the requirements for the module ‘Current and Emerging Roles in Physiotherapy Practice’. The aim of the module is to prepare learners for emerging physiotherapy roles in response to changing healthcare needs, evolving contexts of delivery of practice and government health targets.Read More…
Led by Peter Vaes, This project was created by and for the students in the Rehabilitation Sciences and Physiotherapy program of the Vrije Universiteit Brussel, Brussels, Belgium.  Now in it’s third year the project has evolved enormously and students are now tasked with updating articles previously written.Read More…

We have also been collaborating on several new projects recently from a selection of universities, research groups, clinics and groups of clinicians.  The projects are beginning to explore new and innovative ways to share knowledge through Physiopedia.

The STOPS trial to prove that high quality Physiotherapy is effective was established in 2009 by Dr Jon Ford.  In relation to this project the STOPS reasearch team have collated a large amount of information about back pain which they plan to contribute to Physiopedia through this project. Go to the project home page…
