WCPT publishes disaster management report
A new WCPT report, published this month, advocates for physical therapy involvement in disaster management. The report points to the need for high quality rehabilitation after disasters, as well as emphasising that the role of physical therapists is not limited to direct provision of rehabilitation. It embraces preparedness and recovery and can include assessment, coordination, psycho-social support and advocacy.

WCPT pledges support for HCiD campaign
Earlier this month, WCPT pledged its support to the international Committee of the Red Cross Health Care in Danger (HCiD) campaign raising awareness of the impact of violence on health professionals in conflict areas.
The official pledge asserts that physical therapy plays a vital role in dealing with the health problems and functional limitations that are the direct consequence of armed violence and the use of landmines and other weapons of war.
