Now onto the questions – to delve a little deeper into diversity in physiotherapy. And by diversity we are thinking about all its facets – ethnicity, disability and LGBTQI amongst others #Physiotalk

physiotalk @physiotalk
Q 1: Do you consider yourself to be from a more diverse part of the population? And is that equally represented in within the physiotherapy profession? #physiotalk https://t.co/6oaEQ5exZZ
physiotalk @physiotalk
#Physiotalk
Suk Wong (she/her) @SukWong9
@physiotalk #physiotalk Yes with regards to ethnicity which is not represented within the profession especially in the North
Dr Melrose Stewart MBE @MelroseStewart1
@physiotalk #physiotalk 'A more diverse part of the population'? Depends what characteristics and in what context.
Janet Thomas @JanetThomas47
@physiotalk No - I'm from the white female majority that makes up the physiotherapy profession. And certainly where I live in Scotland, the wider diversity of population is not represented in our profession. #physiotalk
physiotalk @physiotalk
@SukWong9 Do you think there is a strong geographical (in the UK) difference? I think so - but I only see one part of the UK of course! #physiotalk
physiotalk @physiotalk
@MelroseStewart1 Yes- very difficult to get across in a few characters! Do you have a protected characteristic or consider yourself part of an under represented section of the population?? #physiotalk
Laura Chimimba 🧡 @LauraC_Physio
@JanetThomas47 @physiotalk I think thats common in most areas and with regards to all aspects of diversity: socioeconomic group, race, sexuality, disability etc #physiotalk
Justine Musiime - MSc MPH MCSP @JustineMusiime
@physiotalk I agree 💯. The physiotherapy profession needs to be more diverse. I've worked with many teams where I've been the only non-white team member. In some instances it's been tough to adjust & fit in, and other times it's been smooth sailing. #LocumPhysio #physiotalk

@SukWong9 Particularly wondering about anyone based in more metropolitan areas of England perhaps? Wider representation - or not? #physiotalk

Q 2: How does lack of diversity affect physiotherapy? #physiotalk https://t.co/RsWy5i83do

@physiotalk @SukWong9 #physiotalk The population in Birmingham is very diverse but physiotherapy population not so
Suk Wong (she/her) @SukWong9
@physiotalk #physiotalk I suppose it varies depending on cohort but larger percentage of international students Vs qualified therapists. But when they go out on placement on a less diverse placement, it might impact their perception
Janet Thomas @JanetThomas47
@physiotalk So many ways! We may not attract people who would be fantastic physios for a start! And we need to reflect the populations we treat as well. #physiotalk

physiotalk @physiotalk
Q3: What are the institutional problems within our profession? #physiotalk https://t.co/OgSGlHhH9S
Laura Chimimba 🧡 @LauraC_Physio
@physiotalk @JanetThomas47 The examples I’ve come across has been schools - telling students they should look for an easier course. Fortunately there are unis now trying to encourage applicantions from more diverse groups. Even just embracing different sources of work experience can be helpful #physiotalk
Dr Melrose Stewart MBE @MelroseStewart1
@physiotalk @JustineMusiime @WeAHPs Complex reasons but I am guessing historically, entry gates into physio were more elitist? Many nurses were admitted to SEN status initially Also depends on University entry requirements, flexibility, widening participation schemes etc #physiotalk
BHJ Respiratory @BhjRespiratory
@physiotalk #physiotalk it effects our care - as others have said, not taught about skin colour differences in bruises from abuse or pressure. Can lead to accidental insult by demanding removal of clothing or refusing to remove shoes - both I’ve seen and educated on with B5s and students
physiotalk @physiotalk
@BhjRespiratory @JanetThomas47 The gender balance is beginning to shift now at least. Time for the balance on everything else to shift! #physiotalk

Suk Wong (she/her) @SukWong9
@physiotalk #physiotalk I am unsure as I do not work within academia. I know there has been more discussions on twitter/social media. I feel students are more aware of diversity, perhaps because it is discussed more and they interact on social media?
physiotalk @physiotalk
Thinking about other characteristics linked to disability as well - widening participation is starting to attract more students with disabilities. Are they then disadvantaged in our workplaces? #physiotalk

(Sri)kesavan Sabapathy @Srikesavan
@physiotalk I don't think so. Physiotherapy is growing and branching out into multiple areas. There is room for physiotherapists with all protected characteristics. Managers need to be creative and proactive during recruitment #physiotalk
Dr Melrose Stewart MBE @MelroseStewart1
@LauraC_Physio @JanetThomas47 @physiotalk #physiotalk You can become what you cannot see (NB pioneers) but it is not an easy road to navigate! #representationmatters

Q5 How do we make working in research more visible and valued, especially for people from a more diverse background? #physiotalk https://t.co/WDd8M4wrLf
Suk Wong (she/her) @SukWong9
@physiotalk #physiotalk I feel the environment of workplaces doesn't always lend itself to inclusivity. I.e. a busy acute ward can be very noisy (I e. hearing impairment), sensory overload, not wheelchair accessible etc
BHJ Respiratory @BhjRespiratory
@physiotalk #physiotalk tough one! From my experience, not so much cultural/ethnicity, but the assumption that being a physio means no long term conditions and therefore not supporting adequately/brushing over/‘forgetting’. Seen in multiple teams/individuals/cases

Justine Musiime - MSc MPH MCSP @JustineMusiime
@MelroseStewart1 @physiotalk @WeAHPs You are right @MelroseStewart1. It could also be due to awareness of the profession's existence. Personally, I'd never heard of Physiotherapy until I read it on the equivalent of the 'UCAS' application form. I only put it on the list because it had a nice ring to it! #physiotalk

Dr Melrose Stewart MBE @MelroseStewart1
@Srikesavan @physiotalk I think our colleagues with registered or declared disabilities are best placed to answer this one. Experience tells me the road to equity for those with disabilities is still a pretty steep climb within institutions #physiotalk
physiotalk @physiotalk
@LauraC_Physio Supporting students with disabilities can be a challenge - but often because of educators lack of awareness or even preconceptions of what a 'physio' should be like? #physiotalk

Justine Musiime - MSc MPH MCSP @JustineMusiime
@physiotalk @WeAHPs Traditionally, the options for being a health care professional were 'doctor' and 'nurse', and this is still the case in some people's minds. Media has a big part to play too. #physiotalk

Laura Chimimba 🧡 @LauraC_Physio
@physiotalk The simple act of providing it in someones native language if a dept serves a particular population is probably helpful, though suspect a lot more needs done during validation process of outcome development #physiotalk

@BhjRespiratory It came from a follower not in the UK. So I suspect one where the issue with diversity is very different to ours - but still a real issue! #physiotalk
(Sri)kesavan Sabapathy @Srikesavan

RT @spiteri_anna: @physiotalk #physiotalk I think the Apprenticeship route into AHP careers including Physiotherapy is a step in the right direction. More opportunity for people to enter the profession through alternative routes other than GCSEs, A Levels #physiotalk

RT @MelroseStewart1: @JustineMusiime @physiotalk @WeAHPs Same here! I had never heard of physio, or my parents for that matter, until one of my friends said that was what she wanted to be one #physiotalk

RT @BhjRespiratory: @JustineMusiime @physiotalk #physiotalk there is always room for improvement. As long as someone can see that they will work towards it. Being blind to issues or deaf to concerns/suggestions just breeds ignorance- then nothing changes.

RT @Srikesavan: @physiotalk The WRES reports are saying no... The lived experiences are saying no... The reporting to fitness practice data is saying no... The odds are stacked high... Some of us have had wonderful experiences and learning from us would help... #physiotalk

@Srikesavan @BhjRespiratory @physiotalk Perhaps not prefer but it might be less stressful and/or there is inadequate support? #physiotalk

@BhjRespiratory @MelroseStewart1 @physiotalk Multiple factors isn't it...those who suffer need a safe an secure environment to voice their concerns. That would be the beginning to any solution #physiotalk

@physiotalk Sharing reflection #physiotalk - as American trained and having worked in several countries- I needed to remind myself of poverty data and gender inequality metrics so I could contemplate answer. https://t.co/gINeUM3Caz https://t.co/S5iKxcrWWp

@physiotalk I've seen research (PhD) funding opportunities that openly exclude non-'home students'. This obviously excludes all physiotherapists who do not have UK citizenship or Indefinite Leave to Remain, thus limiting their chances of getting to work in research #Physiotalk
