Synopsis

This webinar will introduce the Aquatic Rehabilitation Service Provision Recommendations with application across the United Kingdom.  These recommendations were developed through consultation as part of an NHS Education Scotland AHP fellowship.  They are endorsed by the professional network the Aquatic Therapy Association of Chartered Physiotherapists (ATACP) and the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy (CSP), as well as the national steering group the Aquatic Physiotherapy and Hydrotherapy Alliance (APHA).  The recommendations are intended to provide a platform for clinicians and service managers to improve, modernise and commission robust high quality aquatic physiotherapy services across all rehabilitation settings.  It is hoped that in the near future these recommendations will provide the basis for the development of a set of standards for aquatic rehabilitation services to benchmark against.

Speaker :- Alasdair Davie

Alasdair qualified as a physiotherapist from Glasgow Caledonian University in 2006 with an MSc Rehabilitation Science.  After completing his core rotations he gained experience working in senior and advanced practice roles across a range of musculoskeletal specialties including MSK Back Pain, Pain Management and General Practice. Since 2016 Alasdair has worked in NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde Hydrotherapy services. 

Following completing an MSc in Advancing Healthcare Practice with The Open University, Alasdair led a consultation on the future of aquatic rehabilitation in NHS Scotland as part of an NHS Education Scotland AHP Fellowship. Currently also working as an advanced practice physiotherapist in rheumatology, Alasdair is undertaking a doctorate in aquatic physiotherapy at The University of Stirling and hopes to advance the evidence base to support the modernisation of hydrotherapy services.
