Get Social and help us to celebrate World Physiotherapy Day on September 8th! 



World Physiotherapy Day (WPD) takes place on September 08th. This year the campaign title as set by WCPT is 'Physical Activity for life'.


Every year, World Physiotherapy Day is an opportunity for physiotherapists from all over the world to raise awareness about their crucial role in keeping people of all ages active.

The campaign message of World Physiotherapy Day 2017 is “Physical activity for life”. The message builds on World Health Organization recommendations for moderate and vigorous activity, and a range of research and reports showing the benefits of physical activity in maintaining health in people of all ages.


World Physiotherapy Day takes place on the 8th of September. WCPT has released their materials for the day online. This year’s theme is 'Physical activity for life’. You can find information for World Physiotherapy Day, including their toolkit, on the WCPT website here

Win a €500 Bursary for your idea for World Physiotherapy Day


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.



Despite the advice to members not to currently register with the Physiotherapists Registration Board, the Society recognises that some members will have no option but to register in the interim. These will include current final year physiotherapy students graduating in summer 2017, physiotherapists that have graduated outside of the Republic of Ireland that need to have their qualifications recognised by CORU, and a small number of current members who need to be registered to avail of new job offers.
