Last week we had the first meeting of the IPHA Executive for 2020.
Over the course of the next few weeks you’re going to be able to read about some of the work we’re doing, as each of the Exec members post about work they’re involved in.
Perhaps the most exciting plan we discussed was the development of a physiotherapy history course – the kind of thing that could be offered to students as part of their training, but also as something for clinicians, teachers, and researchers interested in physiotherapy history.
If you have topics you think should be part of the curriculum, or materials you’d like to share, email us directly or post something in the comments box below.
Later this month we will submit the papers for the first ever special issue of Physiotherapy Theory & Practice dedicated to the history of the profession.
We’re going to be adding more historical links and resources to the site, and, over the next three years, preparing for centenary celebrations in Canada, US, and South Africa.
This year marks 100 years since the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy in the UK received its royal charter, so we’ll post more information on that as it comes up.
Overall then, 2020 promises to be another big year for the Association.
Don’t forget, if you’d like to receive email updates of new posts on the site, just sign up to be a member on the right hand side of the page. It’s free and will help us connect you in with the IPHA community.
