Physiotalk was launched in 2013, inspired and supported by other profession-specific tweetchat communities such as #OTalk and #WeNurses.
We use tweetchats, blogs and other web-based content to help physiotherapists to improve health and healthcare though the connections and networks we make on social media.
Physiotalk’s objectives are to help the Physiotherapy community to:
- Learn – through structured pre-chat information and regular tweetchat discussions on education, evidence and practice in physiotherapy, health and healthcare.
- Share ideas, perspectives, experiences and good practice.
- Network with other physiotherapists, healthcare professionals and others online in order to share learning and ideas, building a sense of national and international community, and encourage critical thinking and evidence and practice.
- Influence the knowledge and behaviours of peers, as well as the wider health and healthcare system – raising awareness of the role and impact of physiotherapy.
Physiotalk was co-founded by UK-based physiotherapists Janet Thomas (@JanetThomas47) and Naomi McVey (@NaomiMcVey) in 2013, and joined by Rory Twogood (@RoryTwogood) in 2015.
