Women’s health resources for rehabilitation professionals on Physiopedia and Physiopedia Plus

To commemorate today’s International Day of Action for Women’s Health, check out these resources from Physiopedia and Physiopedia Plus (Plus) to learn about the health issues that affect women and will have an impact on your clinical practice.

Women make up ~50% of the global population and all rehabilitation professionals need a solid understanding of the health issues affecting women. However, women’s health is often overlooked during training for rehabilitation professionals and important health issues that will impact patient outcomes are missed in women.

Today marks the International Day of Action for Women’s Health, calling for inclusive, accessible and available sexual and reproductive information. In support of this, we have pulled together some great resources from Physiopedia and Plus on women’s health issues that you will likely see in your clinical practice, but might not have realised.
