In 2013 Ms Bazin met the European health commissioner in Brussels to discuss issues affecting physiotherapists in providing better care for patients

Speaking to Frontline about her new four-year term in office, Ms Bazin said: ‘I’m thrilled and honoured to be re-elected unopposed as chair of the European Region of the World Confederation for Physical Therapy (ER-WCPT).

‘The European Region is proactive in representing the value of physiotherapy in offering solutions to the health problems created by demographic change within the region and supporting member organisations.’

Ms Bazin has been a member of the executive committee of the ER-WCPT for the last six years, during which she has chaired the professional issues working group and, for the past four years, also chaired the executive committee.

Her re-election will be ratified at the ER WCPT’s general meeting in Copenhagen in May.

As part of her role with the organisation, in 2013 Ms Bazin met the European health commissioner in Brussels to discuss issues affecting physiotherapists in providing better care for patients and in promoting activity and fitness.

Supporting clinical practice

The World Confederation for Physical Therapy is a non-profit organisation which represents more than 350,000 physical therapists worldwide through its 106 member organisations, including the CSP.

Its European region covers 36 countries and more than 163,000 physiotherapists.

‘The region is looking forward to the fourth regional education congress which is taking place in November 2016 in Liverpool, Ms Bazin said.

The congress is being hosted by the CSP and will run instead of the society’s annual conference.

‘The event will have a broad basis, looking at all aspects of learning and professional development supporting clinical practice.’ Ms Bazin said.
