Personal summary

I have full understanding of all the NHS Core values Working together for patients- Patients come first in everything we do Respect and dignity. We value every person – whether patient, their families or carers, or staff – as an individual, respect their aspirations and commitments in life, and seek to understand their priorities, needs, abilities and limits Commitment to quality of care- We earn the trust placed in us by insisting on quality and striving to get the basics of quality of care – safety, effectiveness and patient experience right every time Compassion- We ensure that compassion is central to the care we provide and respond with humanity and kindness to each person’s pain, distress, anxiety or need Improving lives- We strive to improve health and wellbeing and people’s experiences of the NHS Everyone counts- We maximise our resources for the benefit of the whole community, and make sure nobody is excluded, discriminated against or left behind. I always practised as an autonomous professional in a professional manner, non-discriminatory manner and maintained service user confidentiality, dignity, rights and privacy. I have effectively worked with patients from various cultural backgrounds and made sure that I understand their beliefs and respect their dignity and involve the patients in the decision making in order to provide the best possible care. I am completely able to work as an autonomous practitioner and I have excellent work experience of working as an Autonomous Physiotherapy professional, responsible for my own judgement, clinical reasoning and decision making. I autonomously perform Physiotherapy assessment, provide differential diagnosis and Physiotherapy diagnosis, set patient-centred treatment goals, select and provide evidence based physiotherapy treatment, effectively evaluate and monitor patient progress and make changes, modifications or stops treatment in light of their current progress. I also write discharge summaries autonomously and use my clinical judgement to discharge the patient. I employed the following 5 steps in my evidence based practice in all core areas of Physiotherapy Step1: Formulate an answerable question Step 2: Find the best available evidence Step 3: Appraise the evidence Step 4: Implement the evidence Step 5: Evaluate the outcome I maintain a self-directed as well as structured CPD portfolio in a systematic manner. In self-directed CPD, I store all my readings of research articles. I have also done structured CPD courses including hands-on workshops, courses and conferences. I only practise within my ethical boundary and understand the ethical boundaries of a Physio. I fully understand all my ethical boundaries and scope of practice. I am completely aware about my legal and ethical boundaries of the Physiotherapy profession. I always maintained the patient's dignity and safeguarded all the patients. I know how to manage my workload effectively. I delegate tasks, if required or prioritise them. I use effective prioritisation strategies to ensure that I manage my workload effectively and provide the highest quality of care to all the service users. I am confident that I manage my caseload effectively and efficiently. In relation to finances, I ensure that various materials used for treatment are not being wasted. I always ensure cost-effectiveness and make sure to monitor modality working conditions. On many occasions I prioritise my caseload and if required I allocated various tasks to other healthcare professionals. I divided my caseload into “urgent” and “non urgent cases”. I am also aware that the health service is under pressure and I manage various resources like time and materials in the best way possible. I analytically performed self reflection of my evidence based practice and identified the gaps, strengths, weaknesses, insights into my professional practise. Self reflection has helped me to gain insight into my professional practice, improve my self-awareness, strengths, weaknesses and understanding the roles of others in my practice. I have excellent knowledge of research methodology Reflection helps me in thinking critically about my experiences with the aim of learning and changing my behaviours. It challenges my understanding, attitudes, and behaviours so that the discovered biases (anchoring, commission, ascertainment/stereotype, confirmation, pattern recognition and availability biases etc.) will allow me to become more critical about my views of practice with patients. I employed Gibbs Reflective Cycle model which provides a structure for learning from experiences. I have participated in the audit process and performed quality analysis to improve the practice and continue providing high quality services to service users. I worked as a part of a team and involved other professionals in holistic care of service users. I discussed my strengths and weaknesses and took additional training or CPDs to fulfil the weaknesses or gaps. I have always maintained dignity, confidentiality, rights of service users and practised in a non-discriminatory manner. I always gain written and verbal informed consent from the patient. I would always have a chaperone (parents or guardians) present in the treatment room while working with paediatric patients. I would gain consent from the chaperone on behalf of their child. For patients with reduced mental capacity, I made special arrangements. I have always provided high quality professional care. I make sure that I maintain professionalism in all my activities including communicating with service users and other healthcare professionals. I am fully aware about my responsibilities and duty of care towards my patients. I use a patient centred approach and I am aware of signs of neglect and abuse. Safeguarding protocols are well known to me. I build effective communication both verbally and non-verbally and by actively listening to the patients and their family members while taking history, assessing, advising, and educating them about the patient's condition, exercises, and self-management at home. In my evidence based practice, the service user is an integral part of the clinical decision-making process. I communicated with the service users to understand any circumstances, preferences or concerns that affect the extent to which the patient will be happy with the clinical decision and will comply with any recommended Physiotherapy treatment. I communicated with the patient to understand any circumstances, preferences or concerns that affect the extent to which the patient will be happy with the clinical decision and will comply with any recommended physiotherapy treatment.
