COVID19 chat #physiotalk 23rd March 8pm

We are moving from our usual fortnightly chats to offer an extra chat on the topic that we are all talking about – COVID19 and Coronavirus.

We asked you if you wanted a chat – and you said yes.

We asked you what you wanted to start with – and you said looking at how we might be asked to treat people with respiratory symptoms.


So that will be the subject of our tweetchat on Monday 23rd March at 8pm. 

We will be looking to chat about issues such as what physiotherapy interventions with people who have COVID19 might be and how to mitigate risk if you are treating people with COVID19 and issues to consider if you are on call
