September 8th is World Physical Therapy Day and to help in the campaign for awareness about the crucial contribution of the profession of physical therapy, the World Confederation for Physical Therapy (WCPT) is offering a toolkit available now for download so event organisers may plan ahead their activities.
The toolkit includes materials divided into four categories:
- Advice sheets
- Ready-made information sheets
- Information about clinical areas
- Ready-made visual materials
The theme for this year is Movement for Health, which focuses on the vital role physical therapists play in combating lifestyle diseases and, in particular, the worldwide obesity crisis. This year, the WCPT is also providing extra factual materials to help you focus on particular types of lifestyle diseases that are relevant to your location and the contribution physical therapists make in combating them. The new areas covered are:
- childhood obesity
- cardiovascular disease
