What we do

The annual BHPR/BSR conference is key date for AHPs. This conference features keynote speakers, poster presentations, updates on practice, latest research and service developments. It includes the newly established regional members meeting, the joint AGM, Special Interest Group Meetings, social events and many networking opportunities. Members are strongly encouraged to submit research and audit abstracts.

We contribute to and provide a voice for health professionals in the Arthritis and Musculoskeletal Alliance (ARMA), Arthritis Research UK, Arthritis Care and the European League Against Rheumatism (EULAR).

We actively contribute to the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) Technology Appraisals and the development of standards and guidelines nationally.

We actively contribute to the development of the Arthritis Research UK Allied Health Professions education initiative developing distance learning rheumatology courses and are working closely with the BSR education committee to develop a theme of education courses linked to the lecture or courses for nursing and e-learning. We also contribute to the development of the NHS Evidence - Musculoskeletal News.
