APCP Practice and Experiences of Paediatric Physiotherapists during the COVID 19 Pandemic - Survey Results

 We would like to say thank you to APCP members for your participation in this special Journal edition.

 Back in June, we asked you to share your experiences of the COVID-19 pandemic and there is no doubt there was a lot to be said……..

We have listened, and analysed your responses to determine common themes and are delighted to present the results today.  Seven key areas have been explored; these include the paediatric physiotherapy role, caseload management, technology, continuing professional development, research and education, wellbeing and moving forwards.   Each key theme has a dedicated section so you can read through the entire Journal or jump to individual themes.  The introduction and concluding section entitled “ Are we there yet?” are also presented as individual articles for ease of reading.
