World Physical Therapy Day is on 8th September 2015. The day is an opportunity for physiotherapists from all over the world to raise awareness about the crucial contribution the profession makes to keeping people well, mobile and independent.
Dr Emma Stokes, Associate Professor in Physiotherapy in Trinity College Dublin, was elected today as President of the World Confederation for Physical Therapy (WCPT) at the WCPT Congress in Singapore and is the first Irish Chartered Physiotherapist ever to achieve this prestigious global post.
Members of the Irish Society of Chartered Physiotherapists will join physiotherapists around the world to celebrate World Physiotherapy Day today (8th September 2014).
The theme of World Physiotherapy Day for 2014 is ‘Fit to take part’ which highlights the role which physiotherapists play in helping people with long-term illnesses or disabilities to become independent and fulfil their potential.
