NEW briefing paper published: digital practice during COVID-19
latest World Physiotherapy COVID-19 briefing paper highlights the
consequences of COVID-19 on physiotherapy digital practice services.
paper includes reflections on changes in practice and potential
implications for the future reported by World Physiotherapy member
organisations and individual physiotherapists.
Thirty-four member organisations from all of World Physiotherapy’s five
regions, three subgroups and 148 individual physiotherapists
participated in a survey on the experiences of digital practice arising
from the consequences of COVID-19 in 2020.
The briefing paper includes case studies from physiotherapists in
Australia, Jamaica, Nepal, New Zealand, Uganda, UK, US, and Uruguay. The
studies show the innovation and variability in changes to service
delivery and act as examples for others.
Our report on the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on physiotherapy services globally is now available in Spanish.
This World Physiotherapy report was published in English
earlier this year and reported back on the online survey sent to member
organisations in 2020. The survey included questions about how the
COVID-19 pandemic had impacted physiotherapy practice and the governance
of World Physiotherapy’s member organisations.
The report is also being translated into Portuguese and will be available shortly.
The online congress was a huge success and is summarised in the words of
one participant: "Thank you all for putting together an excellent
congress. It isn't easy to create a great event such as this. Well done
global PT community!"
