World Physical Therapy Day

With just over 5 weeks to go there is no time to waste in planning your events for 8 September. New information is now available to download for World Physical Therapy Day 2010 at from the WCPT:

World Physical Therapy Day has proven to be an invaluable opportunity for physical therapists around the world to promote the work of the profession and highlight the vital role it plays in global health. As in the two previous years, we are continuing with the Movement for Health theme, with new materials added for 2010 on both active aging and how physical therapists help people affected by HIV/AIDS.

The material the WCPT provide is deliberately wide-ranging, providing a basis for activities and campaigns to suit the particular priorities of physical therapists in different settings and geographical areas.

If you are looking for inspiration take a look at events which took place last year at www.wcpt.org/wptday#activities or visit the “toolkit” at www.wcpt.org/node/28728.
