How we can help

Want quick and easy way to clock up professional development credits? Done!

Most practicing therapists would agree that you don't actually start learning how to use your new found skills when you qualify until you start putting them into practice regularly. Like driving, you learn the rules of the road and the physical and neurodynamic skills to manoeuvre a car, but it's only after you pass your test that you really start to learn how to drive.

But unlike cars and roads, where the rules don't really change, anything involving the human body, can and does....regularly.

A good therapist has to continually learn and adapt. Evidence-based practice is crucial but so too, as we all know, is practice-based evidence.

But evidencing that learning can feel like a bit of a burden and we all dread that communication from our professional association, telling us we've been selected to be audited. In reality we're learning all the time, we just don't have time to stop and write the lessons we've learnt down.

To try and ease some of this burden we do a few things with our articles.

  1. We try and ensure that as many pieces of content as possible have certificated elearning quizzes. These are quick 15 question multiple choice quizzes which if completed successfully result in a personalised downloadable/printable CPD certificate which outlines the contents of the quiz and includes your name and your pass rate. This is accessible for you to download at any time.
  2. We include 3-4 debate-style questions at the end of each article which you can use in journal/reading groups or as essay topics for students.
  3. Lastly we make sure to include as many different types of media within our articles so that we cater for all learning styles and preferences. These include videos, podcasts, loads of visual aides and images and more recently audio-recordings of our most popular articles.

Don't waste precious time doing things we can do for you

Another of the most common 'stresses' that our readers report is the amount of time it takes to keep up with changes in research, and let's not get started on social media!

Our readers fall into three camps when it comes to social media:

  1. I don't touch it
  2. I try to but it's overwhelming
  3. I love it!

And yet 87% of the people we surveyed begrudgingly admitted that it could be useful both for keeping up to date as well as a potential marketing tool, but only 14% actually engaged in it regularly for one of the above purposes.

We get it. Time is a huge issue. So very early on we introduced our Journal Watch sections and a few years ago we introduced our monthly Social Watch. We won't find everything that you might want because that would be overwhelming for everyone, but we will make sure you don't miss anything important.
