Recently, I have receieved emails from Egyptian Physical Therapists interested in learning more about Occupational Therapy. Many of them report that they heard about OT from the OT in Egypt Blog link posted on the home page of the The Egyptian General Physical Therapy Syndicate: ( http://www.gpts-egypt.org/ ).
As OT's are part of the whole rehabilitation team, I think it is very important that all members (doctors, nurses, speech and language therapists, physical therapists, psychologists, psychiatrists, social workers etc.) have an understanding of each other's role in a patients' wholistic treatment plan.
So, thanks to The Egyptian General Physical Therapy Syndicate for linking their PT's to our OT in Egypt Blog!
I think future Egyptian OT's can learn a lot from the history of Physical Therapy development in Egypt.
If any Egyptian physical therapists have specific questions about OT and their role in patient care, please post a comment here.
