Our Physio Committee is looking for a new member

We are inviting haemophilia physiotherapists to apply for one vacant post on our Physiotherapists Committee. The position is for a three-year term that would begin in February 2022.


Physiotherapists Committee membership offers an opportunity to contribute to the development and implementation of physiotherapy and inter-professional EAHAD projects and events, including the Allied Health Professionals Pre-Congress Day.


If you are interested in applying, please send a short letter of motivation (maximum 300 words) outlining why you wish to be a part of the committee. Your letter should include the following information:

• Number of years working with people with bleeding disorders
• Whether you work with children, adults, or both
• Specific areas of interests in the field of haemophilia physiotherapy


Applications should be sent by email to no later than Monday 20 September 2021. The current Physiotherapists Committee members will carefully consider all submissions to select the applicant whose profile and motivations best fit with the committee’s current composition. To encourage geographic diversity in its membership, at any given time there may be no more than two members from a given European country.


Please note that in order to be considered for a place on the Physiotherapists Committee, you must:


• be a registered or qualified physiotherapist,
