Survey of Physiotherapist INtervention with PMR patients (SPIN PMR)

West MidlandsMusculoskeletal
Start Date: 1 Jan 2014

Project summary

Recent clinical guidelines advocate a multidisciplinary approach to the management of PMR, involving a range of healthcare professionals, yet to date evidence supporting this approach is lacking and the extent to which physiotherapists are involved in managing this patient group is unknown. This cross-sectional survey aims to describe physiotherapists’ current management of patients with PMR within the United Kingdom and to explore their views and experiences concerning their role in treating this patient group. Even if you do not currently manage patients with PMR we are still very interested in your thoughts, experience and your potential decision making in the management of patients with PMR.
