Strategic plan for 2022 and beyond launched

World Physiotherapy’s strategic plan for 2022 and beyond focuses on building a thriving and engaged global physiotherapy profession, supporting physiotherapists and advocating for people, regardless of location, to have access to physiotherapy services.

The plan has been developed after a series of consultations, surveys, and focus groups with the board, member organisations, regions, subgroups, and the staff leadership group. During this process, World Physiotherapy’s purpose and vision were reviewed and revised, and several key themes emerged, which have been grouped into three strategic pillars, underpinned by four core values. 

Emma Stokes, World Physiotherapy president, said: “We’re very excited to launch our new strategic plan. We have revised our vision and present our values clearly. The strategic pillars that will inform our work build on our previous strategy and set us up for a world emerging from a global pandemic and facing many challenges.

“It has been collaboratively developed through consultation with our community and I believe it represents a contemporary approach that remains true to the value and ambitions of our founding member organisations."

The strategic plan is available as an infographic in:

World Physiotherapy accredits two physiotherapy entry level education programmes

The World Physiotherapy accreditation committee agreed at its meeting in July to grant full accreditation to two physiotherapy entry level education programmes, one in Madrid, Spain, and one in Istanbul, Turkey.

The accreditation of the programmes at the European University of Madrid, Spain, and Yeditepe University, Turkey, brings the total number of programmes accredited by World Physiotherapy to 18. 

The World Physiotherapy accreditation service resumed full activity earlier this year, undertaking site visits in March/April, after two years of limited activity due to the impact of travel restrictions imposed by the COVID-19 pandemic. Four more site visits are expected to take place during 2022 in three different World Physiotherapy regions.

Dia Mundial da Fisioterapia 2022

 

 Texto original em inglês

 

O foco do Dia Mundial da Fisioterapia deste ano, em 8 de setembro, é a osteoartrite e o papel dos Fisioterapeutas na sua prevenção e na gestão das pessoas afetadas pela osteoartrite. Em 2023 o foco será em outras condições reumatológicas.

 

World PT Day 2022 will focus on osteoarthritis

The focus for this year’s World PT Day on 8 September is osteoarthritis and the role of physiotherapists in its prevention and in the management of people affected by osteoarthritis. In 2023 the focus will be on other rheumatological conditions. 

Access the campaign materials 

The campaign is focused around the following key messages.

  • Osteoarthritis (OA) is the most common joint condition: 520 million people around the world have OA, and 60% of OA cases are for knee OA. 
  • In a global study of 291 conditions, hip and knee OA was ranked as the 11th highest contributor to disability.
  • The exact cause of OA is unclear. Risk factors that increase the risk of OA include: having overweight or obesity, having a previous joint injury or joint surgery or history of joint overuse, genetics. 
  • Exercise is a first-line treatment for OA. A physiotherapist can provide advice and education about pain relief and ways to manage OA. They can teach people living with OA how to improve joint movement and strengthen muscles. 
  • It is important for people living with OA to keep as active as possible. This can help improve pain, reduce other symptoms of OA, and help people stay independent. 
  • Only about a third of people living with OA will get worse over time, and some see an improvement in pain and disability. A physiotherapist will be able to guide you on how to keep active.

World PT Day toolkit

The World PT Day toolkit includes a range of materials to share the campaign in your country/territory, including information sheets, posters, banners and a booklet on how to take part.

The information sheets and posters are available in English and Spanish, and will be available shortly in French. Volunteer translators are working on versions of the materials in other languages, which will be uploaded to our website as they become available.

Please note: the materials may not be amended without the permission of World Physiotherapy.

World Physiotherapy would like to express its sincere thanks to the following physiotherapists for their input and assistance in the production of the materials for World PT Day 2022: Marisa Coetzee, Rana Hinman and Jackie L. Whittaker.

World Physiotherapy sends strong message of support to Norwegian Physiotherapist Association as it defends the integrity of the profession in Norway 

World Physiotherapy has provided support and solidarity to Norwegian Physiotherapist Association (NFF), its member organisation in Norway, to reject a proposal from the government to create an authorisation scheme for ‘manual therapists’ in Norway.

In a joint letter with the International Federation of Orthopaedic Manipulative Physical Therapists (IFOMPT), World Physiotherapy  has written to Gerty Lund, NFF president, expressing concern the proposed scheme would create a pathway to a different profession through the physiotherapy profession.
