Resources available to support researchers
The MACP is actively involved with the National Physiotherapy Research Network (NPRN) which provides support for researchers and provides opportunities to establish collaborative links with other researchers.
Physiopedia provides a free global web resource to promote dissemination of physiotherapy knowledge. It gives physiotherapists an opportunity to register studies they are undertaking, participate in studies that are seeking to recruit volunteers as well as providing evidence based clinical information and reference to relevant research papers. It also provides a wiki that can be edited by people collaborating together on a project
There is also the ICECReam collaboration. This collaboration provides a virtual meeting place for early career researchers, gives them an opportunity to establish collaborative links, to present their work to other researchers, be peer reviewed and receive advice and tips about specific topics e.g. research methodology, practical difficulties and solutions, administrative hurdles etc.
The number of people who have registered their support is: 4568
