Ruben Laurel Info:

World Confederation of Physical Therapy (WCPT) recognises there is considerable
diversity in the social, economic, cultural, and political environments in which
physical therapist education is conducted throughout the world. WCPT recommends
physical therapist entry-level educational programs be based on university or u
niversity-level studies, of a minimum of four years, independently validated and
accredited as being at a standard that accords graduates full statutory and pro
fessional recognition.

elop treatment plans that describe the treatment strategy, its purpose and antic
ipated outcome. PT assistants, under the direction and supervision of a physical
therapist, may be involved in implementing patient treatment plans. Physical th
erapist aides perform routine support tasks, as directed by the therapist.
