Chance for a WCPT DOVE to join WHO rehabilitation steering group

WHO is seeking nominations for people interested in joining a steering group to help shape a rehabilitation framework. The steering group will review submitted frameworks and develop the WHO rehabilitation competency framework.

Members of the steering group will be expected to:

  • provide expert opinion on the competency framework structure, language, scope and content to ensure that it achieves its intended aims
  • help coordinate the dissemination of drafts for peer review by relevant organisations
  • support the translation of feedback into concrete and meaningful recommendations.

Nominated members should be familiar with competency frameworks (or competency models/standards) and their applications and, ideally, have been engaged in competency-based approaches in a professional capacity.

WHO plans to limit the need for travel, and use online platforms (including email and Web-Ex) for communications and steering group business, and encourages nominations from people who are able to dedicate time to reviewing materials and participating in discussions. One face-to-face meeting will be held in Geneva, Switzerland mid-2019 in conjunction with the next Rehabilitation 2030 meeting.

Further details about the role and mandate of the WHO rehabilitation competency framework steering group can be found in the Terms of Reference.

If this is an opportunity that interests you, please contact WCPT Chief Executive Officer Jonathon Kruger at info@wcpt.org

Deadline for applications: 19 November 2018.
