Please accept the sincere greetings from NEPTA!
After the successful completion of NEPTACON and formation of new executive board, now we are at the process of prioritizing activities focused on enhancing physiotherapy profession. Soon, we are also going to follow up on agendas that we already raised at the Ministry level. From our past experience, we realized that data on physiotherapist (demography, locations, practice set up, qualifications and employment status) are very much required. Comparison of this data with the population of Nepal is vital to calculate the physiotherapist need as well as the capacity to address the present demand. Realizing the importance of physiotherapist data during the advocacy with government, we created an online system to collect physiotherapist profile through the Facebook and website. But out of many, only 63 have responded and the same result was also shared on NEPTA FB page. From NEPTA, we would like to extend our wholehearted thanks to these 63 respondents. It’s very much important to have complete data that represents all Nepali physiotherapist based at different locations.
Having the inclusive and reliable data is one of the prior preparatory tasks for igniting the advocacy with government. Let us join our hands together to make it effective. We consider that information dissemination regarding this data collection to your network reflects your solidarity for our better recognition. Kindly go through the below mentioned link to participate in the human resource data collection and also support us by sharing it in your friends and colleagues.
Accountability is one of the key principles of our actions, that’s why we shall definitely share the data findings and seek your valuable input during the analysis.
NEPTA is collecting information regarding physios in Nepal and Nepali physios abroad. This will directly help us:
1. To plan the strategies to proceed forward so that we can ask for an independent council for physiotherapists (everyone should be aware that, more the number of physios, better it is for the formation of council, with small number, all we can do is to wait for years more).
2. To inform the members and non-members of NEPTA about the activities and progress NEPTA in various areas.
3. To inform about conferences, workshops and continuing professional development activities.
4. To share recent updates in the field of physiotherapy.
