  • PTs Sought for Survey on Physical Therapy Role in Managing Schizophrenia

    Researchers from the International Organization of Physical Therapists in Mental Health are seeking input from US physical therapists on using exercise to help manage people with schizophrenia. The organization is a subgroup of the World Confederation for Physical Therapy.

    The 20-minute survey will collect such data as current position, any training in mental health, and referral mechanisms, in addition to physical activity for this population. Complete the survey.

    The survey deadline is April 28. Contact A. Soundy for more information.
