Physiotalk: connectedness and constructive change – a qualitative study

The first stage of this research was a quantitative review on ‘Understanding the reach of a physiotherapy tweetchat community’ presented as a poster at ER-WCPT congress in Liverpool in November 2016.

The second stage is a qualitative study exploring the impact of taking part in physiotalk tweetchats on continual professional development (CPD) and professional practice, from participants’ perspectives.

Here’s a full PDF of our #WCPT2017 poster on Connectedness and constructive change – a qualitative study you can download and share, and you can also comment on below.

We were also chosen to have an extended abstract published in the European Journal of Physiotherapy
