WCPT launches World Physical Therapy Day toolkit

The toolkit for World Physical Therapy Day 2017, including all-new infographics, a postcard and booklets, is available to download.

WCPT has launched the toolkit for World Physical Therapy Day 2017. The theme is ‘Physical activity for life’, emphasising the role of physical therapists in supporting people of all ages to keep moving.

This year's toolkit focusses on how physical therapists help people to achieve activity goals through advice and exercise programmes.

"World PT Day is an opportunity to recognise the fantastic work that physical therapists do for their patients and community," says WCPT Chief Executive Jonathon Kruger.

"We recognise that World PT Day is a time of great celebration for the physical therapy community, and encourage all member organisations to download the toolkit and start planning events and activities to showcase how we keep people physically active for life."

World Physical Therapy Day takes place on 8th September. WCPT encourages member organisations to organise events, publicity and campaigns which celebrate the global physical therapy community.

The toolkit demonstrates how physical therapists can help keep people of all ages active, including World Health Organization recommendations for moderate and vigorous activity, and a range of research and reports showing the benefits of physical activity in maintaining health.

In addition to infographics, posters and booklets the toolkit includes lists of resources, a flyer, ready-to-print banners, stickers and a t-shirt design.
