World Physical Therapy Day

There is now just over one month left to plan your activities to celebrate World Physical Therapy Day 2015. This year the theme is “Fulfilling potential”, emphasising physical therapists’ role in supporting people with long-term health conditions or disabilities achieve their goals, fulfil their potential and participate fully in society.

World Physical Therapy Day falls on 8th September every year, and is an opportunity for physical therapists from all over the world to raise awareness about the crucial contribution their profession makes to keeping people well, mobile and independent. WCPT supports member organisations in their efforts with a toolkit of free materials.

Posters, flyers and postcards with this year’s theme are available for download from the WCPT toolkit page. From here you can also access a resources booklet with a list of facts and resources about physical therapy, independence and participation, as well as an article by the WCPT President (found in the resources booklet).
