From the CSP: Understanding of delegation principles in your area of practice

This is just in from the CSP:

We are reaching out to you to ask for your input in to our work on supporting our chartered members and associate members (support workers in physiotherapy) with their understanding, and implementation of, delegation principles.

From the CSP: Understanding of delegation principles in your area of practice

As you know a great deal of hands-on care is now delivered by support workers. We continue to work towards ensuring that support workers feel confident of their abilities and enabling registered practitioners to feel confident in delegating activities to their support workers.

We have developed guidance previously which helps clarify the delegation process for registered practitioners and support workers, as well as accountability, supervision, duty of care, scope of practice and PLI issues which are also considered.

As part of our ongoing work on this we’d like to hear from you about some potential good practice examples whereby delegation to support workers takes place within your area of practice and in particular where this enables support workers to develop their own expertise within a practice area.

Please let us know if you have examples of this and if you can suggest any support worker members of the CSP who’d be interested in showcasing what they do to other members.

We have a number of comms planned on this area including a member webinar on 13 June (hosted by our CSP networks) and within a support worker awareness week in November (more info to come).

We also have an open survey for support workers to complete (open to non members as well as CSP members) therefore please do share this with support workers you work with:


If you have any specific questions relating to CSP work on this topic please contact professional adviser Rachael Wadlow
