World Physiotherapy Day

This September 8th is World Physiotherapy Day, a global event that aims to celebrate the role that Physiotherapists play in keeping us well, mobile and independent.

Building on the findings of the World Health Organisation’s (WHO) World Report on Ageing and Health, the theme for this year’s event is ‘Add life to years’. As our ageing population continues to grow, (with an expected 2 billion people over the age of 60 by the year 2050) the focus of the campaign is the contribution and cost effectiveness of physiotherapy in healthy ageing.

WPTD2016_infographic_A4_FINAL-1

To mark the occasion, we’ve put together a collection of resources available from St George’s Library to our support our students and Physiotherapists in practice. We’ve also highlighted some other useful links, including websites, tweet chats and other social media tools that may be useful in supporting Physiotherapists throughout their career.
