Pesquisas revelam estado global da profissão Fisioterapeuta

 (Via
 World Confederation for Physical Therapy WCPT)
Portuguese and English version
 
As respostas à pesquisa mais recente da Confederação Mundial de Fisioterapia (WCPT) revelam um aumento significativo no número de Fisioterapeutas que são membros de sua organização nacional.

A WCPT publica dados de suas organizações membros todos os anos sobre uma série de questões, incluindo regulamentação profissional, prática, educação e número de Fisioterapeutas empregados. Esses dados fornecem um perfil global abrangente e valioso da profissão.

Os dados mais recentes são baseados em pesquisas realizadas por 105 das 120 organizações membros do WCPT em meados de 2019. A alta taxa de resposta, 87,5%, demonstra forte envolvimento entre a WCPT e suas organizações membros e a confiabilidade dos dados. Esses dados fornecem uma visão global da profissão Fisioterapeuta em todo o mundo, mostrando variações na densidade de Fisioterapeutas em diferentes países e entre as regiões da WCPT. Os destaques dos dados de 2019 incluem:

    - 70% dos entrevistados disseram que a participação em sua organização aumentou.

   - 58% dos entrevistados disseram que havia acesso direto em seu país e as pessoas poderiam se referir a um Fisioterapeuta sem referência.

   - 81% dos entrevistados disseram que não havia lei impedindo a prática privada em seu país
    globalmente, 66% dos Fisioterapeutas são mulheres - em três países (Hungria, Mianmar, Santa Lúcia) pelo menos 90% dos Fisioterapeutas são mulheres.

O executivo-chefe da WCPT, Jonathon Kruger, disse: "As respostas às pesquisas de nossas organizações membros continuam a fornecer comparações internacionais ricas e valiosas que a WCPT e seus membros podem usar para influenciar decisões políticas sobre saúde, prestação de serviços de saúde, planejamento de recursos humanos e educação. "

Os mapas de perfis dos países permitem que as pessoas vejam como a profissão global evoluiu desde 2013. Os mapas são um recurso interativo que pode ser impresso ou baixado e pode ser acessados no site:
https://www.wcpt.org/wcpt2021
 
O feedback das organizações membros do WCPT tem sido extremamente positivo:

"Conseguimos aumentar nossa associação em 2018, envolvendo Fisioterapeutas em todas as nossas atividades. Garantimos que pedimos sua ajuda e incluímos seu ponto de vista em tudo o que fazemos. "
Societé Haïtienne de Physiothérapie
 
"O crescimento da associação é um indicador de sucesso. Acreditamos que esse ganho veio da confiança que nossos membros têm no papel da Sociedade de Fisioterapia da Emirates, de como apoiamos o desenvolvimento profissional de nossos membros e atendemos às suas expectativas."
 Emirates Physiotherapy Society

"Acreditamos que a principal razão para o aumento da associação é devido aos muitos eventos que organizamos e participamos, dando mais visibilidade à nossa associação e fortalecendo-a. Também oferecemos descontos para as pessoas que participaram de nossos cursos de treinamento para fazer parte de nossa associação. Somos verdadeiramente gratos pela ajuda da WCPT nesse esforço e estamos convencidos de que os dados estatísticos futuros serão muito valiosos para nós. "

Surveys reveal global state of the physical therapy profession

Responses to the latest World Confederation for Physical Therapy (WCPT) survey reveal a significant rise in the number of physical therapists who are members of their national organsiation.

WCPT publishes data from its member organisations every year on a range of issues, including professional regulation, practice, education, and the number of employed physical therapists. This data provides a comprehensive and valuable global profile of the profession.

The most recent data is based on surveys completed by 105 of WCPT’s 120 member organisations in mid-2019. The high response rate, 87.5%, demonstrates strong engagement between WCPT and its member organisations and data reliability. The data gives a global snapshot of the physical therapy profession across the world, showing variations in the density of physical therapists in different countries and between WCPT regions. Highlights of the 2019 data include:

    70% of respondents said membership of their organisation had increased
    58% of respondents said there was direct access in their country and people could refer themselves to a physical therapist without a referral
    81% of respondents said there was no law preventing private practice in their country
    globally, 66% of physical therapists are women – in three countries (Hungary, Myanmar, St Lucia) at least 90% of physical therapists are women

WCPT Chief Executive Jonathon Kruger said: ‘The responses to the surveys from our member organisations continue to provide rich and valuable international comparisons which WCPT and its members can use to influence policy decisions around health, health service delivery, human resource planning, and education.’

The country profile maps allow people to see how the global profession has evolved since 2013. The maps are an interactive resource that can be printed or downloaded, and can be accessed here.

Feedback from WCPT member organisations has been overwhelmingly positive:

‘We have been able to increase our membership in 2018 by involving physiotherapists in all our activities. We make sure we ask for their help and include their point of view in everything we do.’
Société Haïtienne de Physiothérapie

‘The growth in membership is an indicator of success. We believe this gain has come from the trust our members have in the role of Emirates Physiotherapy Society, how we support our members’ professional development and meet their expectations.’
Emirates Physiotherapy Society

We believe the primary reason for the increase in membership is due to the many events we have organized and participated, giving our association more visibility and making it stronger. We have also offered discounts to people who have attended our training courses to be part of our association. We are truly grateful for the help of the WCPT in this endeavor, and we are convinced that the future statistical data will be very valuable to us.’
Asociación Española de Fisioterapeutas
