Climate change and sustainability are at the forefront of current events. According to the United Nations, we are experiencing accelerated global warming due to human activities and it will take a united effort to slow this trend. Hypothetically if global health care was a country, it would be considered to be the fifth-largest producer of greenhouse gas emissions in the world. As healthcare professionals, we must expand the concept of ‘do no harm’ to our planet, and physiotherapists are uniquely situated to help decrease healthcare’s carbon footprint and the release of pharmaceutical pollutants into the world’s water cycle.


This course aims to introduce the concept of sustainable healthcare and highlights the role physiotherapists can play in decreasing healthcare’s carbon footprint and environmental pollution.


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
