Abstract
  • This is the report of a working party set up by the King's Fund College in 1973 to examine training for the remedial professions of occupational therapy, physiotherapy and remedial gymnastics. It highlights several areas which warrant further investigation: student selection; wastage during training; job specifications of therapists in senior grades; job evaluation of the remedial professions; treatment techniques and rehabilitation programmes; identification of skills and knowledge common to the remedial professions and other professions; design and monitoring of integrated courses; teachers and training and the roles of teachers and clinical supervisors. The need for research into all aspects of the work of the remedial professions is recognised; it is stressed that continued research into the education and training of therapists is necessary so that the training constantly evolves to meet the needs of patients and the changing methods of health care and education.
