With the first ever Prosthetists and Orthotists (P&O) Day only days away the British Association of Prosthetists and Orthotists (BAPO) is reminding prosthetists and orthotists to support the awareness day in their own services and organisations.
Taking place on the 8th September 2021, the awareness day aims to raise the profile of the two disciplines primarily with other health and care professionals. The day will provide the opportunity for prosthetists and orthotists to celebrate the profession and the benefit these roles have for patients accessing the services.
A suite of case studies is being prepared, based on information shared from prosthetists and orthotists across the country, to demonstrate the role the profession play in promoting patient wellbeing, health and rehabilitation.
There is also a P&O Day toolkit which includes various assets – social media content, website banners, posters etc – for BAPO members to use throughout their organisations and networks to raise the profile of the awareness day. The toolkit can be accessed here.
If you have got a case study or success story to share about the P&O profession, please complete the template which can be found on the P&O Day page on the BAPO website and return it by 31 August 2021
