Physiotherapy: the ‘golden bullet’ to fight frailty

People are living longer, but we need to ensure we live well and physiotherapists have the ‘golden bullet’ to fight fraility. This will be the focus of this year’s Paul Wagstaff Commemorative Lecture, a free public lecture hosted by the Irish Society of Chartered Physiotherapists (ISCP), taking place on Monday the 9th of September in Trinity College Dublin (TCD).


Applications are now being accepted for full time Professional Development Coordinator (or equivalent in part time roles) for an initial two year fixed term contract to coordinate HSE funded CPD courses on behalf of physiotherapists working in the public health service.

The ISCP is currently recruiting a  PR & Communications Manager on a full–time two years initial fixed term contract.

World Physiotherapy Day (WPD) is on September 8th, and once again the ISCP is at the forefront of promotion of this important day for Physiotherapy. This year’s theme will be Physical Activity for Life. Focus will be placed on the need for healthy adults to be physically active throughout their lifespan, and the role of physiotherapists to keep people moving.

  • Details of Assessment of Professional Competence to be set by CORU .
Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) is a progressive disease that is characterized by airflow limitation and inflammation. Breathlessness, decreased physical activity and recurrent chest infections are some manifestations of the disease.  The average age of individuals with COPD who require secondary care services in a Dublin teaching hospital is 65.
