Spring 2022 Occupational Health

The term occupational health in the role of physiotherapy is often related to the clinician contracting with an employer to maintain the health and wellbeing of their employees. Whilst the edition of In Touch addresses that aspect of practice with articles from members of the professional network of ACPOHE, we also look at the health and wellbeing of individual patients who may not be deemed as occupational health cases, but whose ultimate goal for their physiotherapy treatment is to maintain their ability to undertake their chosen profession, or return quickly and safely to it following an occupation-related injury.
