The Dangerous New Person on the Team

Submitted by Craig Allingham on Sun, 04/06/2017 - 14:03

You’ve done it. You have seen the need for more talent in your team. You have taken the bold step of advertising or letting people know you are hiring. You have screened, interviewed, interviewed again, worried, calculated, negotiated a remuneration package and agreed on a start date. All done.

Except for the ticking time bomb that is the new hire.    Read more....

Is a Business Plan Enough?

Submitted by Craig Allingham on Thu, 08/12/2016 - 19:32

Business plans are important tools for any owner, and in my role as a QIP practice surveyor I have seen many such plans - some brilliant and some in need of work. Not a lot of work, as most are pretty close to the mark and just need firmer time frames and outcome measures. But none of them was a strategic document.

Business Events 2017

Submitted by Craig Allingham on Thu, 24/11/2016 - 10:36

Interesting developments with the Australian Physiotherapy Association keen to work with me in delivering quality business education to practitioners and leaders through 2017. Dates, topics and places are yet to be determined but this should be sorted soon. The first event is likely to be an on-line lecture in Feb or March on the Seven Sins of Physio Business. Join in and discover the mistakes we all make and hopefully what you can learn from them. Details will be posted in the events list when available.

The Martians are resting....

Submitted by Craig Allingham on Thu, 24/11/2016 - 10:30

Over the last 18 months our four person teaching team of Stuart Baptist, Jo Milios, Peter Dornan and Craig Allingham have delivered an innovative and practical workshop for physios interested in men's health. Mastering the Martians is a day full of prostate recovery (continence and erectile function), male pelvic pain, exercise as a recovery strategy and practical sessions on real time ultrasound. More than 120 physios have completed the Martians workshop and now we are taking a break for six months at least to review, rethink and rework the program.

The Martians are in good hands

What a fabulous workshop in Brisbane last weekend where I had the privilege of co-teaching alongside Peter Dornan AM, Jo Milios and Stuart Baptist. Three of the best men's health physios in the country. We had participants from NSW, North Qld, New Zealand and as a special treat Prof. Paul Hodges came along and I suspect Paul doesn't attend many courses these days. He told me his research has been funded for a further five years so we look forward to more cracking good work for we clinicians to apply and adapt to.

Marketing a Healthy Service

Submitted by Craig Allingham on Fri, 31/07/2015 - 09:29

Health practitioners are notoriously poor at marketing. Brilliant at other stuff, but reluctant if not timid when it comes to marketing their services. I am not talking of selling, well not the sort of selling that gives retailers, car salesmen and telco phone marketers a bad name.

This one day event will give you the confidence to integrate men's health into your physio practice including RTUS, communication strategies, exercise and manual therapy for pelvic conditions, prostate surgery rehab and more.
