Get Involved

From sporting injuries, back pain, to rehabilitation, post pregnancy treatment or prescribing physical activity, most of us will be treated by a physiotherapist at some point in our lives. Getting involved by fundraising, becoming a corporate partner or simply donating, will allow the PRF to further allocate research grants for clinical trials that enable physiotherapist to adopt the latest, safest and most effective techniques when providing treatment.

Fundraising

Make a difference through research. Your fundraising efforts will allow the PRF to further allocate research grants for clinical trials that enable physiotherapists to adopt the latest, safest and most effective techniques when providing treatment.  In order to guide you on your fundraising journey, the PRF has identified four main fundraising initiatives for you to choose from, they are Fit4PhysioFundraise4PhysioDress4Physio and Bake4Physio.

These can be accessed through the PRF Fundraising platform, hosted by MyCause, a trusted Australian fundraising provider, to facilitate our new peer to peer fundraising campaign.  

With each of the four activities identified, we have also created a marketing toolkit which can be accessed once the activity has been authorised.

A Fundraising Guide has also been developed to assist you in your fundraising efforts.

Corporate partnerships

The Physiotherapy Research Foundation is privileged to have the support of corporate partners, who share similar business values and are invested in long term collaboration. Your support can make a difference to the livelihood of many Australians as physiotherapy plays a crucial role in Australia’s healthcare system. It is one of the largest allied health industries and continues to grow rapidly. Physiotherapists help patients recover from injury, manage disease and improve their wellbeing.

The PRF is focused on developing research which can further enhance the physiotherapy profession and also advance career opportunities. One of our first major grants recipients, Dr Claire Baldwin, describes her experience as critical for her career progression, ‘For me, it was a really important step to moving from a student researcher, to an independent researcher and starting to build collaborative networks’. As a corporate partner your business has an incredible opportunity to be a part of that.

We are excited to offer partnerships with organisations across Australia to further support research that advances physiotherapy knowledge and practice. Our partnerships are based on collaboration and mutual benefits. Working on a case by case basis, we can build tailored partnerships that suit your business goals. 
For more information please refer to our Corporate Partnership overview or contact PRFpartners@australian.physio.

 

Research is so valuable to our profession, strong scientific evidence based research enables physiotherapists to adopt the latest, safest and most effective techniques when providing care and treatment to patients. This is why the PRF is funding what we call ‘research translation’. We are highly invested in discovering innovative ways to reproduce research findings and deliver content in a more digestible manner. For more information on Research Translation click here. We have had the privilege of collaborating with FlexEze on several projects over the years. Most recently, a series of podcasts have been developed as part of the ‘Talking Physio’ series. For more information on these Podcasts, please listen here.

There are three levels of partnership agreements with the PRF—Platinum, Gold and Silver packages. There is a minimum level of commitment for each level with additional content opportunities that can be tailored as required. 

Additional content can be sponsored in conjunction with or separately from, these sponsorship packages.
