The aim of the study “Lifelong learning among Croatian physiotherapy professionals” was to examine the attitudes that physiotherapy professionals have towards their professional development. The issue being addressed in the study is their level of motivation for lifelong learning. The basic question to which this study was seeking an answer is outlined in the following hypothesis: “There are statistically significant differences in the dependent variables which relate to lifelong learning with regard to five fundamental independent variables: sex, age, years of service, place of work and qualifications”. 1271 respondents participated in the study, i.e. 77% of the defined population of physical therapists. The survey was carried out in 65 institutions at all healthcare levels, in Croatia, in the period from 1 October 2013 to 31 March 2014. The respondents were men and women between 18 and 65 years of age, and with 1 to 40 years of service. These respondents varied in terms of their place of work (private, regional and national institutions) and professional qualifications (ranging from secondary school degrees up to university degrees).
