Environmental physiotherapy is an emerging field in our profession that applies across physiotherapy research, practice and education. It builds on the recognition that human health and functioning depend on a supportive social and natural environment. Environmental physiotherapy is grounded in an in-depth exploration of the relationship between health, society, environment and physiotherapy in all of its facets. Fostering both environmental awareness and responsibility, the aim is to advance the physiotherapy profession to make significant contributions to planetary health and wellbeing in a manner that recognises the inseparable nature of today’s environmental, social and health challenges.
As an emerging field in physiotherapy research, practice and education, the aim of this programme is to introduce different aspects of environmental physiotherapy and invite physiotherapists around the world to get involved in its collaborative exploration, development and implementation.
This programme will cover the following topics:
- Introduction to Environmental Physiotherapy
- Environmental Implications for Physiotherapy
- Active Transport
