Announcing a New Global Health Project!

“Working in Culturally Diverse Settings” is a new project being led by the Global Health Division (GHD) of the Canadian Physiotherapy Association. The project aims to educate physiotherapy students and professionals in regard to cultural competency. Whether you are planning a career in global health or whether you are practicing in your home country, you will undoubtedly be working with people from a variety of cultures. We therefore believe that all physiotherapists can benefit from the content of this project!

The mission of the Global Health Division (GHD) is to advocate for the unique role that physiotherapists have in global health and to encourage Canadian physiotherapists to engage in ethical global health work. We whole heatedly agree with this aim and we are proud to be helping with the project.

Although the project is led by the GHD it is non-country specific so we encourage anyone interested by the topic to contribute, either by working on the content or simply emailing us with your viewpoint so that we can upgrade the content.

Make sure you keep checking the project page to look for new content and don’t hesitate to email contribute.

My interest in health and fitness started at a young age. Even though I had been educated and trained as an engineer in Europe I always want to follow my passion. I have made some guest appearances on a health educational program TV in Europe and, this experience, has made me follow my passion of sharing wellness information with others.
