Physiotalk was founded in 2013 by Naomi McVey and Janet Thomas.
In 2018 we decided to expand the team and invited @physiotalk followers to join us. We were delighted with the response and here are the new team members (In no particular order!)
Louise Brennan (@Louise_Brennan_ ) is a Chartered Physiotherapist and Marie Curie Research Fellow from Dublin, Ireland. Her PhD research is on technology and cancer rehabilitation, and she has worked within the NHS in London and Kent, specialising in in-patient rehabilitation. Louise is interested in new and innovative ways of enabling communication and learning between physiotherapists.
Hello I’m Lewis! – you can find me at @lewadam discussing all things physio, followed by the occasional cricket retweet.
Having completed an undergraduate degree in Sports Therapy I am now a first year MSc Physiotherapy student at York St John University. I count myself fortunate already having an interest within MSK practice, particularly surrounding the reforming practice debates and discussions which have been circulating for sometime.
Over the past 3 years I have utilised Twitter as a valuable (somewhat addictive) CPD tool which has unquestionably progressed my learning due to the wealth of information available. Being part of the #physiotalk team provides a great opportunity to continue to broaden my networking circle, whilst generating thought provoking discussions to facilitate the learning of many other social media users (including myself!).
Helen (@hartey_PainPT) graduated from Coventry University in 2000 and has since gone on to complete an MSc in Rehabilitation at St Georges, University of London.
Anna (@spiteri_anna) says: I have worked as a Paediatric Physiotherapist in Enfield since 1994. I work time as a clinician and part time as a Freedom to Speak Up Guardian which is a role helping staff to raise concerns about safety. I have extensive experience in Paediatric musculoskeletal and neurodevelopmental physiotherapy. I have completed formal postgraduate training in leadership at University College London in 2017. I am interested in all things Physiotherapy and all things related to patient safety. I am also interested in the AHP agenda. I am interested in digital technology and how it can be used to share and network
