CAHPR and the National Institute of Health Research (NIHR) are proud partners of a new AHP Research Impact Award category in 2019.
The Chief Allied Health Professions Officer (CAHPO) awards celebrate the outstanding contribution of AHPS to improving health, care and wellbeing for patients and communities. The Research Impact Award was introduced to allow AHP researchers to receive recognition for their personal contribution to exceptional care delivery and development.
Research Impact Award 2019 - winner
Rob Goodwin, Physiotherapist - double winner of the Research Impact Award 2019 and AHP of the year at the Chief Allied Professions Officer (CAHPO) awards 2019.
Rob’s research focussed on First Contact Physiotherapy Practice, an important area of development for AHPs, and a current policy priority. Judges thought the work demonstrated potential for wide spread uptake with good local and national impact for patients and staff. The work is likely to have further national influence and spread especially with ongoing research activities, already significant in terms of influencing Chartered Society of Physiotherapy and NHS policy.
