Paediatric Musculoskeletal Competency Frameworks

The APCP MSK Specialist Committee are pleased to launch a series of paediatric musculoskeletal competency frameworks for physiotherapists working in the UK.

The Spine is the first in a series of competency frameworks that the Committee have been working on over the past 2 years. The Shoulder Complex launches today. Further joint specific frameworks will be launched over the next few months.

We intend that these will be working documents that will align with future research.  We would welcome any feedback after they are published especially when they are implemented in the clinical setting. Please send feedback to

The documents will be available to download from the Publications and Resources pages.
