Before we start I want to mention that a good friend of the podcast, Dave Nicholls who I spoke to on episodes 21 and 51 has a new book coming out titled Physiotherapy Otherwise, which is a follow up to his phenomenal book The End of Physiotherapy. I haven’t fully read it yet, but I am certain it will be immensely thought (and hopefully action) provoking and transformative like the it’s predecessor. The book will be available to download for free as a pdf and ePub in early January and I’ve provided the link here.
So in this episode I’m introducing a series of conversations with clinicians or former clinicians who feel they’re outsiders of their healthcare profession, sharing their experiences, struggles and how things could change. I’m calling this series the outsider series and I hope by speaking to people that feel like professional outsiders for a range reasons and in different ways, we can learn more about our professional selves and how we relate (or not) to each other and the idea of our respective professions. The intention of these episodes is not to further deepen any divisions within professions, but to better understand where and why divisions might exist.
