Click here to view the Society's CEO Ruaidhri O'Connors message to members on the Minisher for Health Decision to Protect the titles Physiotherapist and Physical Therapist in one Register

The Irish Society of Chartered Physiotherapists (ISCP) today welcomed the decision made by the Minister for Health Leo Varadkar to also protect the title Physical Therapist  under section 95(3) of the Health and Social Care Professionals Act 2005 which will eliminate the ongoing risk of title confusion between Physiotherapist and Physical Therapist and the consequent risks to public safety.

The Irish Society of Chartered Physiotherapists (ISCP) today received formal confirmation that Minister for Health, Leo Varadkar, has written to CORU to inform it of his decision to protect both titles in one register. This momentous decision is what the ISCP has been seeking for many years.

The Minister has decided to adopt the Physiotherapist Registration Board’s proposals to introduce grand parenting provisions for practitioners with appropriate qualifications from the Institute for Physical Therapy and Applied Sciences (IPTAS) in a once - off arrangement.

Thank you to all the members that have responded positively to our call to action last week to help achieve the protection of the titles of physiotherapist and physical therapist in one register. Momentum is growing and local lobbying by members will greatly assist the national lobbying campaign.

Call to Action to help achieve the protection of the titles of physiotherapist and physical therapist in one register

 

Members are urged to immediately commence a political lobbying campaign in response to a call to action to assist in the final effort to achieve the protection of the titles of physiotherapist and physical therapist in one register.

The ISCP have created 5 videos aimed to give advice to Dublin Marathon participants.
The videos have been shared online via the ISCP Facebook&nb
