Pesquisas revelam estado global da profissão fisioterapêutica



As respostas à última pesquisa da Confederação Mundial de Fisioterapia (WCPT) revelam que o acesso direto ao Fisioterapeuta está disponível em 48 países e não há restrições à prática privada em 77 países.

Surveys reveal global state of the physical therapy profession

Responses to the latest World Confederation for Physical Therapy (WCPT) survey reveal direct access is available in 48 countries and there is no restriction on private practice in 77 countries.
For a number of years WCPT has published data from its member organisations 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 89 WCPT member organisations in mid-2018. 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 2018 data include:


  • 54% of respondents said there was direct access in their country and people could refer themselves to a physical therapist without a referral
  • 86% of respondents said there was no law preventing private practice in their country
  • globally, 60% of physical therapists are women, however this varied from countries where it was as high as 80% (17 respondents) to as low as 40% (four respondents).
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:

‘The infographic presentation of the global survey allows us to clearly understand our current status compared to other WCPT member organisations in the region and the whole world. It is a very useful reference for us to decide the next steps of professional development as well as to advocate our needs to the government. It is our honour, as a member organisation, to be a significant and integral part of WCPT.’
Taiwan Physical Therapy Association

Saúde dos migrantes no programa do Congresso WCPT 2019


Reabilitação, diversidade, inclusão e saúde dos migrantes estão entre os tópicos do programa para o maior e mais influente encontro de Fisioterapeutas do mundo em Genebra, de 10 a 13 de maio.


Rehabilitation, diversity and inclusion, and migrant health feature on WCPT Congress programme

 
SEF physical therapists provide support to people affected by volcano in Guatemala

Rehabilitation, diversity and inclusion, and migrant health are among the topics on the programme for the world’s largest and most influential gathering of physical therapists in Geneva, 10-13 May.

Organised by the World Confederation for Physical Therapy at Palexpo in Geneva, the WCPT Congress 2019 will include 26 focused symposia and 12 discussion sessions, featuring speakers from a range of specialisms and from across WCPT’s five regions. Focused symposia are core congress sessions providing a forum where cutting edge research and practice perspectives can be explored and debated.

WCPT Congress Programme Chair Charlotte Häger said: ‘The focused symposia are very popular features of WCPT’s congress and draw large audiences. The symposia offer an opportunity to hear the most recent evidence from and engage with experts in their fields, and the discussion sessions explore current and critical issues and tap into the experience and knowledge of everyone in the room.

‘Some of the subjects on the programme should be familiar to delegates but, in addition to presenting updates in important areas, we’ve also included some new topics, for example diversity and inclusion and migrant health. Rehabilitation is an important issue for physical therapists and I’m pleased we’ve been able to include a number of novel sessions exploring this, rehabilitation in humanitarian emergencies, strengthening rehabilitation leadership, and rehabilitation in low-resource countries.’

The programme also includes networking sessions, clinical visits, and pre and post congress courses.

Professor Häger said: ‘WCPT’s priority is to make congress as relevant and engaging as possible for as many people as possible. It’s an opportunity to share professional knowledge and experience, gain insights, and build networks in an international context.’
