Work enhances physical and mental health, plus it develops confidence, purpose and fulfilment. It is therefore essential that individuals who have long term sickness that results in an absence from work, are effectively supported in their return to productivity. Occupational Health specialists are involved in managing this process. This course, the first in a series of courses from The Association of Chartered Physiotherapists in Occupational Health and Ergonomics (ACPOHE), introduces the discipline of Occupational Health.


This course aims to introduce Occupational Health as a discipline and highlights that all physiotherapists should consider work related factors when treating the working age population.


This course is made up of videos, reading, forum posts and a final quiz. The course content is split into the following sections:

  1. Video
  2. Reading activity
  3. Quiz

Target audience

This course is aimed at Physiotherapy and Physical Therapy clinicians, students and assistants. Other interested professionals such as athletic trainers, occupational therapists, nurses or medical doctors interested in this subject are also invited to participate.
