About the subgroup
The IPT-HOPE subgroup vision is to advance physiotherapy management and prevention of HIV/AIDS, oncologic, and hospice and palliative related functional impairments throughout the world and across cultural groups.
The group provides individuals from member organisations with opportunities to advance evidence-based physiotherapy management in these areas through educational opportunities, networking, research dissemination and collaboration, and clinical practice information sharing and skill development.
The goals of IPT-HOPE are to:
- provide peer support through networking opportunities for its members (List serves, websites, online meetings, and education and research sessions.)
- provide continuing professional development opportunities
- establish mechanisms for promoting evidence to enhance practice
- enhance the international awareness of the benefits of physiotherapy management for individuals with oncologic, palliative care, or HIV/AIDS related conditions
IPT-HOPE is very interested in collaborating and networking with physiotherapy leaders in oncology, palliative care, and HIV/AIDS from many countries so we may continue and move forward the care of our patients.
