WCPT advocates for strong rehabilitation workforce
WCPT, together with the World Federation of Occupational Therapists (WFOT) and the International Society of Physical the Rehabilitation Medicine (ISPRM), has undertaken some collaborative advocacy to ensure rehabilitation is a key component of any health care strategy that has a goal of maintaining functional capacity and independence.

This advocacy was during the second Global Conference on Primary Health Care, in Astana, Kazakhstan, in October. The conference was held to reaffirm the principles of the Declaration of Alma-Ata which was signed 40 years ago. Read the full article

During the same meeting WCPT, as part of the World Health Professions Alliance (WHPA), also welcomed the strong emphasis to strengthen health care systems and support the global health workforce. Read the full article
Global Burden of Disease Study
The 2017 Global Burden of Disease Study (GDB) released this month shows a slowdown of progress across the world.

Published in the Lancet, the study shows that: 'Non-communicable diseases (NCDs) accounted for 73% of all global deaths in 2017, with over half of all deaths (28·8 million) attributable to just four risk factors: high blood pressure, smoking, high blood glucose, and high body-mass index. Obesity prevalence has risen in almost every country in the world—leading to more than a million deaths from type 2 diabetes'.

Access GBD 2017 and all open access GBD studies published by the Lancet:

Regular physical activity is proven to help prevent and treat NCDs. More than any other profession, physical therapists prevent chronic disease by helping people become more active. For additional resources see WHO's global action plan on physical activity 2018 - 2030.
WCPT advocacy and engagement in South America
President Emma K Stokes, Chief Executive Officer Jonathon Kruger, and Professional Adviser Pablo Davo Cabra attended a meeting of WCPT’s South America Region (SAR) in November. Discussions covered a wide range of issues, including migration movements within the region and how this impacted on the recognition of physical therapy qualifications and programmes, online entry level education programmes and finance.

Jonathon and Pablo subsequently delivered an advocacy workshop on ways to develop the physical therapy profession in South America and to discuss national advocacy issues and solutions amongst member organisations.

Following the SAR meeting, 1,500 delegates attended the XX Congreso Latinoamericano de Fisioterapia y Kinesiología (V Congreso WCPT SAR), 7th - 9th November.

O Reino Unido comemora centenário da formação de Fisioterapeutas cegos

Uma postagem do site History.Physio,  publicada hoje por Dave Nicholls sobre Fisioterapeutas deficientes visuais formados na Inglaterra pela Chartered Society of Physiotherapy, reportou-me ao passado, mais precisamente ao Nordeste do Brasil de 1978. Interessante nessa volta é que se tem dela  o registro em livro publicado pelo Fisioterapeuta Risomar da Silva Vieira por meio da Editora Universitária da UFPB - Institucionalização da Fisioterapia - João Pessoa, 2012 (páginas 248 e 249).

No livro o autor cita entrevista com o também Fisioterapeuta Joaquim José da Silva Neto, na época residente em João Pessoa e Membro Efetivo da Diretoria do Conselho Regional de Fisioterapia e Terapia Ocupacional da Primeira Região CREFITO 1. 

" Éramos nove membros efetivos e  nove membros suplentes. Eu era um membro efetivo. E neste período inicial eu fui conselheiro secretário e representava o conselho aqui na Paraíba. E como fisioterapeuta só tinha eu e nossa colega Rosália que trabalhava numa clínica particular. Numa clínica que tinha até uma história de uma fisioterapeuta cega. E foi a primeira ação nossa. Como conselho foi exatamente em cima das clínicas de reumatologistas que não tinham fisioterapeutas, começando a exigir o profissional nestes estabelecimentos. Outra questão é que essa fisioterapeuta inglesa que era a 'papa' da fisioterapia aqui na Paraíba e com a implantação do conselho essa fisioterapeuta inglesa não procura o órgão para fazer o seu registro. Daí iniciou o processo de fiscalização e, depois de muita averiguação foi observado que na realidade ela não tinha uma formação em fisioterapia de nível superior. Eu lembro que ela possuía uma formação em massoterapia e uma parte prática. Então ela não conseguiu regulamentar e acabou fechando e voltando para a Inglaterra."
