Physiotherapy prescribing

Physiotherapy prescribing is embedded in the 2015–17 APA strategic plan so we canvassed the perspectives of APA members from various sectors of the profession to gain insights into the possibilities for physiotherapy in Australia. This is complemented by a one-on-one with Gary Morris, one of the first physiotherapists to gain independent prescribing rights in the UK.

The pivotal contribution that the Physiotherapy Research Foundation makes to physiotherapy research is highlighted through the six APA members who look back at the research they were able to undertake thanks to PRF grant assistance, plus Dr Elizabeth Ellis, APAM, outlines the early years of the Foundation (donations to the PRF of $2 or more are tax deductible); and Peter Suffolk outlines the development of student-led clinics at the University of Canberra, emphasising the clinical education benefits.
