about us

About physiotalk

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.

The team
