Um coração parando o jogo


Uma equipe de Críquete da Inglaterra estava em turnê na Nova Zelândia em fevereiro de 1975 para disputar duas partidas. Na segunda partida o batedor da Nova Zelândia Ewen Chatfield foi atingido por uma bola arremessada pelo inglês Peter Lever, ficando inconsciente devido a uma parada respiratória. Nesse momento entra em cena o Fisioterapeuta Bernard Thomas da equipe da Inglaterra: Thomas traciona a língua do jogador, faz massagem cardíaca e respiração boca-a-boca. Um Chatfield inconsciente, mas estabilizado foi retirado de campo e levado ao hospital, onde identificaram fratura no crânio.

Taken from the Harvard Business Review (https://hbr.org/2018/09/give-yourself-a-break-the-power-of-self-compassion), the article looks at the power of self compassion in the face of regrets or setbacks. Emma also chose an article exploring how taking a self-compassion mindset when considering regret experiences can lead to more personal growth.

World Tuberculosis Day
The World Health Organization will commemorate World Tuberculosis (TB) Day on 24th March to raise public awareness about the devastating health, social and economic consequences of TB, and to step up efforts to end the global TB epidemic.

TB remains the world’s deadliest infectious killer. Each day, nearly 4,500 people lose their lives to TB and close to 30,000 people fall ill with this preventable and curable disease. Global efforts to combat TB have saved an estimated 54 million lives since the year 2000 and reduced the TB mortality rate by 42%. To accelerate the TB response in countries to reach targets, Heads of State came together and made strong commitments to end TB at the first-ever UN High Level Meeting in September 2018.

História da Fisioterapia Projeto de Lei Nº 1265/ 1968



#50AnosFisioterapia

A Associação Brasileira de Fisioterapeutas ABF, fundada nos anos 50 do século passado, promoveu e realizou entre os dias 12 e 14 de novembro de 1964, na Cidade do Rio de Janeiro o primeiro Congresso Brasileiro de Fisioterapeutas. Em 1968, atuando como precursora na ação política da categoria, elaborou anteprojeto que foi transformado em Projeto de Lei pelo Deputado Gastone Righi (PL Nº 1265/68), visando instituir a Fisioterapia como profissão de nível superior. Um ponto negativo do Projeto é o que estabelece: " As atividades do Fisioterapeuta somente poderão ser exercidas sob responsabilidade médica " (Art. 3º). No contexto em que foi elaborado, a Fisioterapia brasileira ainda incipiente não possuía força política; tal "exigência" já não é vista no decreto-lei de 1969.

O projeto tramitou regularmente e foi arquivado, em conformidade com o regulamento interno da Câmara dos Deputados, quando do advento do Decreto-Lei Nº 938/69 que neste ano de 2019 completa 50 anos de sua publicação.

#50AnosFisioterapia Turma de Fisioterapeutas da UFPE 1969

Colação de Grau da Turma de 1969 pela Universidade Federal de Pernambuco UFPE. Um marco na história da Fisioterapia brasileira. #50AnosFisioterapia
No início desta semana visitei o colega e amigo de longa data Clóvis Antunes Carneiro de Albuquerque, o que está na foto  recebendo cumprimentos após o juramento. Conversamos sobre os 50 Anos da Regulamentação da Fisioterapia no Brasil por meio do Decreto Lei n° 938 de 13 de outubro de 1969, lembrando que ele graduou-se na turma daquele ano pela UFPE e que fez  a proposta de escolha do nome do Cel. Jarbas Passarinho - Ministro da Educação, como Paraninfo da Turma. Durante a conversa lembrou que possuia em casa um exemplar do Livro do Prof. Alberto Galvão de Moura Filho que trata entre outros assuntos, o das formaturas de Fisioterapeutas pela UFPE, e que terminou sendo fonte de referência para esta postagem.
