Tralee Advertiser recently caught up with Physiotherapist Corinne Evens and she told us of her good news
“I have been a full practising member of the Chartered Society of Physiotherapists since 1995 but, I am thrilled to have been chosen for the executive board to be the first Kerry representative at board level to this professional body. The Irish Society of Chartered Physiotherapists (ISCP) is responsible with the approval of the Minister for Health, for accrediting entry to the practice Physiotherapy programmes in Irish Universities. The society is also the designated authority for the review and validation of qualifications obtained outside Ireland. ISCP is the national professional body representing over 3,400 Chartered Physiotherapists in Ireland. The Society is respected and recognised both within and outside the profession as the voice of physiotherapy in Ireland. The society is the sole Irish member organisation of the international physiotherapy professional organisation World Confederation for Physical Therapy and contributes to the development of the profession both nationally and internationally.
In Ireland the title Chartered Physiotherapist can only be used by current members of the society. The initials MISCP indicate that a physiotherapist is a member of the society. Chartered Physiotherapists represent the highest standard of practice and service and set the bench mark for professional practice in Ireland. They are bound by a code of ethics and fully committed to upholding the highest medical and ethical standards and continuing professional development. Choosing a Chartered Physiotherapist is your guarantee that they have been trained to the highest academic and professional standards and also, that they continue to keep abreast of emerging trends and developments through a programme of continuous professional development. It is a great honour to have been chosen for this position and I look forward to flying the flag for Kerry at my first board meeting in the Royal College of Surgeons in Dublin on the 17th of January. “
