Your time to shine! Are you a physiotherapist or physical therapist who wants to make an impact on people’s lives? Do you dream of sharing your knowledge or simply looking for ways to contribute on a global platform? Then look no further, why not join Physiopedia in sharing knowledge to empower rehabilitation professionals all over the world.
Physiopedia is a UK based charity that is committed to improving healthcare by sharing evidence-based knowledge. This is achieved by a worldwide network of volunteers who are all graduates of the Physiopedia Volunteer Orientation Course. If you are looking for a new challenge whilst making new colleagues and friends, then this may be the perfect opportunity for you – come and join a global network of physiotherapists and physical therapists.
As a Physiopedia volunteer you will contribute to the development and upkeep of the Physiopedia content. You will create and review articles, assist in content development projects and help others on the team to achieve their goals. Your work will have an impact at a global level. Last year there were projects linked to major world events such as COVID-19, the blast in Lebanon and conflict in many regions of the world.
When COVID-19 was recognised as a pandemic the whole team came together and over the course of a few days had created multiple evidence-based articles to help guide and educate rehabilitation professionals around the world about COVID-19 and how they could contribute during this worldwide crisis.
More recently the team, in collaboration with the USAID funded Learning, Acting and Building Rehabilitation in Health Systems (ReLAB-HS) consortium created articles that were included in the free massive open online course Understanding Rehabilitation as a Health Strategy.
