Climate justice in Physiotherapy

I found this EPA (Environmental Physiotherapy Association) blog, by Shaun Cleaver, to be an interesting read. 

It explored how we can centre justice in Physiotherapy in the context of unequal cause, and effect, of climate change on the global population. 

It made me think about the social determinents of health; the social and economic factors that impact health status. As clinicians how can we empower disadvantaged groups? Can we learn from Indigenous models of health to be more sustainable?

The blog (and many more great resources) is on this link:
