Physiotherapy placements can be daunting - you'll be working in a variety of settings and supporting individuals with a range of conditions. There are new colleagues to work with, and newly learnt theory to put into practice. This pocket guide is designed to make your placements much more enjoyable and less stressful.

From absence policy to SOAP notes, via moving and handling, it's full of practical detail, hints and tips.

  • Written by a team of experienced physiotherapy lecturers and with critical input from their students - this guidance is really produced with you in mind.
  • Pocket-sized format - carry it with you at all times.
  • Space to make your own notes - be it uniform policy, new terminology, or just the names of your new colleagues!
Reduce your stress and make the most of your placements by having this book to hand from the start.
