Priority 9 from the Physiotherapy PSP
|UNCERTAINTY: How is patient progress and/or the results of physiotherapy treatment measured? How is service performance measured and checked? (JLA PSP Priority 9)
|JLA question ID
|This question asks how physiotherapists currently measure and record individual patient progress and wider therapy results. All stakeholders (patients, carers, physiotherapists and other health professionals) were involved in the creation of this question. Specific questions ranged from measuring results in specific fields like palliative care or mental health, to more generally. Patients also questioned how physiotherapists measured the ‘self-managing’ patient i.e. those patients doing Physiotherapy exercises without regular input from a physiotherapist.
