Gender equality and social inclusion (GESI) is a perspective that focuses on increasing access and empowering the decision-making and participation of marginalized populations by removing existing barriers. From the perspective of rehabilitation, GESI aims to not only eliminate barriers and expand access but to promote greater utilization of rehab services while enhancing users' experience. This course will explore definitions related to GESI, how to be a GESI responsive clinician and organization and the implications for physiotherapy practices.
The aim of this course is to help clinicians feel comfortable and empowered enough to identify opportunities to integrate GESI considerations into their daily clinical practice.
