The surgingdemand for physiotherapy and the lacking behind of manpower supply ofregistered physiotherapists has significant impact on the professional andservice development of physiotherapy in Hong Kong.

Followingthe self-financed Physiotherapy training programs launched by the Tung WahCollege in 2018, the Open University of Hong Kong and the Caritas Institute ofHigher Education are going to launch self-financed BSc (PT) programsconcurrently in Fall 2020.

How then tostrike the balance between supply and demand of PT manpower in the comingdecade?

Are theself-finance programs delivered by different institutes compatible to theconventional program?

How shouldwe team up our new generation(s) to take up different professional challengessuch as Open Referral, Specialization, InnovationTechnologies for our Professional Advancement? 

"Arethe self-financed programs going to excel the conventional program?"

On 22Feb.2020, Hong Kong Physiotherapists’ Union is honoured to have invited theprogram leaders of the three captioned Institutes to share their programdetails for interactive discussions at the Forum on “A New Era ofPhysiotherapy 2020 -   The Way Ahead’
