Training the Trainer

On the second day of training we had the privilege of “training the trainer.” The volunteers learned 22 physical therapy skills to take to their villages. The skills were divided into the 4 focuses of physiotherapy: prevention, recovery, movement, and comfort (these are pictured below). To assess their skills, we performed a competency check off. This will ensure that they are able to perform and teach each skill safely and accurately to patients and their families. On the third day of training these volunteers will demonstrate their knowledge by serving a community patient in the village. As the hands do, the mind remembers.
