One third of the world (2.5 billion people) have no rehabilitation. Until every community can access qualified physiotherapists, we believe that they should at least be offered a rehabilitation basic skill set.
DevelopingPhysio are building a teaching curriculum which can be taught by qualified physiotherapists (in collaboration with the in-country physiotherapy association), to provide this practical assistance.
The curriculum, split into modules, have in-built clinical reasoning, guiding a user through an assessment in picture flow diagrams, to arrive at a diagnosis and treatment plan. We believe that after the teaching physio has left the location, the community can continue to diagnose and treat patients safely.
The curriculum is written by experienced teaching physios in the field, their students and specialist physiotherapists from each clinical area. It is split into thirty teaching modules.
