FREE Wheelchair Service Provision Course

We are excited to announce that our FREE Physiopedia course for 2018 will be on Wheelchair Service Provision.  Starting 3 September for 4 weeks, the course (in French and English) will provide in depth knowledge for people interested to learn more about wheelchair provision and training.

Extended knowledge of wheelchair provision and training is not seen as a core skill for all physiotherapists, rather a specialist area of training for those that require these skills in their specific work context.  Despite this there has been a call for increased training for pre-registration physiotherapists related to wheelchair provision, but with educational programmes bursting at the seams this is unlikely to happen.  To fill the gap Physiopedia and ICRC, in their annual MOOC collaboration, are happy to provide a free course that any physiotherapist can attend to extend their knowledge in this topic.

The 2018 MOOC (Massive Open Online Course) aims to provide a basic theoretical understanding of wheelchair mobility and to develop an understanding of the theoretical principles, skills and knowledge underlying the management skills and knowledge in the management of wheelchair service delivery.  Starting on 3 September and lasting for 4 weeks, it will involve around 4-6 hours of work each week (depending on your learning style).  On passing the final quiz and completion of all of the required learning activities participants will receive a completion certificate as well as CPD points and any CEUs available.

In addition to this course in English, a collaboration with Humanity and Inclusion will also provide a French version of the course.
