PREP Content Development Project

Description[edit | edit source]

Prep logo.png

This project aims to develop content related to refuge health. We intend to populate the site with practical, credible and thought-provoking information and knowledge that physiotherapists should have to effectively work with people with refugee experience. Much of this content development has been guided by the Physiotherapy and Refugee Education Project (PREP) and will form part of the content for the PREP online course which will take place from 18 January 2021.

Anyone is welcome to join in this project. You will be joining people from all over the world in contributing evidence based articles to create an evidence based reference on refugee health and for physiotherapists who work with displaced individuals. In return for your efforts you will receive a certificate of completion to help you evidence your learning through your involvement with this project.
