We have a great opportunity for you to get your research published and contribute to the world wide knowledge base on Physiopedia.
Your research can be about any aspect of physiotherapy. It doesn’t have to be a large and extensive trail, we are looking for any research that addresses interesting and relevant questions.
We know how many physiotherapists put many hours, often of their own time, into researching and completing case studies, local research projects or literature reviews, the outcome of which are often seen by only a small number of people. Large, well funded trails are important aspects of research but so are your local projects. Practitioners on the ground asking questions, looking at trends and sharing ideas and answers is vital for the continuing advancement of our physiotherapy knowledge and practice. Maybe you have noticed a trend within your patient group, maybe it’s nothing, a local fluke, but maybe it’s something that other practitioners are noticing too. Maybe it is something important that can be used to improve patient outcomes. It is only by sharing our observations that we can make these links. So why not dig out your projects and reviews and share them on Physiopedia?
