Integration Sub-Committee

One of ISWP’s key objectives is to ensure more people in need of wheelchairs are provided with properly fitted wheelchairs through competent training and delivery. To enable this, a committee of experienced stakeholders across the globe has formed to focus on promoting the integration of wheelchair service provision training materials in the curriculum of rehabilitation professional education programs (including occupational therapy, physical therapy, prosthetics and orthotics, and community-based rehabilitation). This committee aims to understand the global current standard of education, as well as barriers and facilitators to this education. The committee also develops new resources, collects existing resources and shares resources in order to promote improved wheelchair service education in educational institutions worldwide. If you’re interested to participate in the Integration Subcommittee activities, please contact ISWP Research and Training Coordinator, Krithika Kandavel at [email protected]
