Research Participant Recruitment

APCP encourages members to support research into paediatric physiotherapy by opting to receive participant recruitment emails for research relevant to paediatric physiotherapy.

This may include invitations for members to participate in online surveys or focus groups, and requests to assist with participant recruitment by disseminating information to the children, young people and families that they work with.

In compliance with the APCP Data Protection Policy, APCP will support requests from researchers by circulating an email on behalf of the researcher/s but will not in any circumstances share members personal details with external parties.

APCP reserves the right to decline requests that are not considered either to be relevant to paediatric physiotherapy or to have the appropriate ethical approval.
