 Reciprocal Recognition News from Finland
The member organisations from Finland (SOMTY)  have announced that they will join the other MOs that will accept all graduates of IFOMPT approved OMPT programmes as OMPT specialists within their organisations if a graduate meets the country’s registration requirements. This is essentially expanding the concept of “reciprocal recognition” to “Universal Recognition” of the skills, knowledge, and expertise of physical therapists trained in IFOMPT approval programmes. 

Cauda equina Credit Cards

The MACP has translated the Cauda Equina Syndrome (CES) warning credit card into several languages which are available on the IFOMPT website which you are welcome to download and use for patients you may suspect could develop CES. This initiative has been used in the UK to empower patients to act on signs and symptoms of CES so that timely intervention can take place preventing life changing consequences.
The translated credit cards are available at in the Publications and Resources section of this website
