Role of Physiotherapist in Covid-19
Physiotherapists (Physical Therapists) and other clinicians often have direct contact with patients, which make them susceptible to the transmission of infectious diseases. It is therefore very important for physiotherapists and other health professionals to be familiar with COVID-19 and how to prevent its transmission, and understand how they can be involved in workforce planning. They must use their professional judgment to determine when, where, and how to provide care, with the understanding this is not always the optimal environment for care, for anyone involved. At the same time, consideration must be given to the fact that our profession plays a crucial role in the health of our society, and there are people in our communities whose health will be significantly impacted by disruptions to care.
