4th Aug 2011

Rise in course mentor fees..........
At the last course leaders meeting in March it was agreed that the there should be a rise in mentor fees to recognise that it had not changed for some time, and also to continue to encourage mentorship in the clinical setting.
Two options were presented to course leaders and Option 1 was agreed.
"Fees rising from the current £100 per student per week to £125 2012-2013, with fees rising to £150 in 2013-2014 and rising 5% every year thereafter."

CSP Recommendations for Outcome Measures

12th Jul 2011

CSP Recommendations for Outcome Measures.................

The CSP have been told by the DoH that robust outcome measures will be essential for clinical services bidding for contracts under the new "any qualified provider" strategy. As further details emerge, the CSP has recognised the importance of supporting its members in being able to select the most useful outcome measures in order to present strong business cases to commissioners.

To facilitate all MSK services collecting similar data, the CSP will soon be issuing recommendations regarding outcome measures to members. These recommendations are likely to include the use of EQ-5D-5L as a routine outcome measure for MSK patients. The CSP has an agreement with Euroqol which gives all CSP members the free use of the EQ-5D-5L in MSK clinics for the next three years. In addition to the EQ-5D-5L, the recommendations will probably also include the use of specific clinical outcome measures for different body sites.

MACP to become the "Musculoskeletal Association of Chartered

3rd May 2011

MACP to become the "Musculoskeletal Association of Chartered Physiotherapists"..................

Members of the Manipulation Association of Chartered Physiotherapists (MACP) will be aware that there have been extensive consultations over the past year and a half regarding changing the group's name to better reflect contemporary practice in their field. The membership voted strongly for changing the name to the Musculoskeletal Association of Chartered Physiotherapists and this has recently been passed by the CSP.

Changing the name will result in some necessary constitutional changes so the official launch of the name change will take place at the MACP AGM taking place at CSP Congress later this year.

At the end of 2010 clinical interest groups were re-branded as professional networks and the networks are split into six Alliances. The MACP are in the group that was originally called the Musculoskeletal Alliance. Following initial meetings involving the groups involved in this Alliance it is to be re-named the Neuromusculoskeletal Alliance.

Our own name change will help to keep us at the centre of musculoskeletal physiotherapy and the Executive Committee feel this is a very positive step for the future of the MACP.
