Resources for Clinicians

Physio4FMD Workbook

The workbook guides the Physio4FMD intervention and is completed by both the patient and physiotherapist. The workbook is accompanied by an intervention manual for physiotherapists, and it is intended that the physiotherapists delivering the intervention should complete the training course, which is completed in-person over 5-days.

There are two versions available. Version 1 is the version used in the trial. Version 2 of the workbook was updated with minor changes, based on feedback from the physiotherapists who delivered the intervention in the randomised controlled trial. 

Physio4FMD Treatment Manual

The Physio4FMD Intervention Manual was developed to accompany the in-person training for physiotherapists delivering the specialist physiotherapy intervention as part of the clinical trial.
