A framework designed to help allied health professionals (AHPs) at every level of their career to get involved in research has been praised by two leading physiotherapists.

Cherry Kilbride, a reader in physiotherapy at Brunel University London and lead AHP for research at the Royal Free London NHS Trust, voiced support this week (8 March) for the framework.

Describing herself as a physiotherapist and researcher, Dr Kilbride said: ‘We are trying to enact what the framework is advocating. This framework will help to raise awareness of the role that AHPs can play in developing and delivering research.

‘It has the potential to make an impact on the career pathways of AHPs interested in research and it could also raise awareness of how AHPs can become more actively involved.'
