At the beginning of December, I had the delight of accompanying Professor Krysia Dziedzic to the Chartered Society of Physiotherapists (CSP) Annual Award Ceremony 2015. 

Krysia was awarded Fellowship of the CSP for her significant contribution to the translation of best available evidence into clinical practice in the field of musculoskeletal pain associated with osteoarthritis, and her expertise in patient and public involvement in research and work on implementation of research innovations into clinical practice.

Also representing the Research Institute for Primary Care and Health Sciences were PhD students Jonathan Quicke and Kirsty Duncan, who were recipients of the Robert Williams Award.

The Robert Williams award is a competitive travel funding award to support UK Physiotherapy researchers to present at the World Congress of Physiotherapy once every four years. The award enabled Jonathan and Kirsty to present their work at the World Congress in Singapore in 2015.
