Taiwan: World PT Day 2020

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Taiwan Physical Therapy Association (TPTA) celebrated the World PT Day 2020 through various online programmes to avoid crowd gathering. With the theme “the role of physiotherapy in rehabilitation and COVID-19”, TPTA held a series of interactive social activities and events for the general public, whose life has been heavily influenced and impacted by the pandemic, to know more about physical therapy.

Physical therapists invited patients and individuals to participate in filming videos of exercises that could be done at home during quarantine periods. These videos have been posted and shared on social media, including Facebook and YouTube, to promote the health of individuals and public awareness of what physical therapists can do during the COVID-19 pandemic.

In addition, TPTA also encouraged physical therapy students to design Instagram tabs and filters regarding physiotherapy and COVID-19 so that the younger generations could know more about physiotherapy profession and its role in the pandemic.
