New Health Research Board Report

The therapy professions make up a significant proportion of the health-care workforce in Ireland. One of the DoHC's strategic goals is to ensure that the therapy professions have clear direction for their research.The HRB study addresses this by using the Delphi research technique to identify research priorities for each profession:

(i) physiotherapy
(ii) occupational therapy
(iii) podiatry
(iv) speech and language therapy
(v) nutrition and dietetics
(vi) orthoptics
