Abstract

This questionnaire was sent out to members of a clinical interest group in 2005. The aims were to 1.identify the treatment principles that are used currently by community paediatric physiotherapists 2. identify where the knowledge and expertise was learnt for the range of treatment principles used. There is a need to demonstrate evidence based practice in the management of CP in children. This involves physiotherapists updating their knowledge although currently from a limited evidence base. To give these patients the best, most cost effective treatment more rigorous evidence is needed, but then physiotherapists require the necessary skills to interpret these findings before changing practice.
