World Physiotherapy: Digital practice (including telehealth) learning in COVID-19 times - capturing the experiences of individual physiotherapists
Some countries have had digital practice physiotherapy service provision, including telehealth, for some time. With the COVID-19 pandemic such services have seen a major increase in prevalence and the diversification in populations served. In addition, it has emerged as a new model for service delivery in other countries.
World Physiotherapy is keen to understand more about the lessons learnt and the implications for the future of physiotherapy and service delivery. This will inform a new briefing paper to provide an overview of developments and share case studies.
