Physiotherapy News : Odisha June 2014

Odisha: June 2014: With the State Cabinet now deciding to transfer Physiotherapy and Occupational Therapy to the Department of Health & Family Welfare, the practitioners in these fields are hopeful of a change, which has been evading them for last one decade.

Even as almost all the States and the Union Government have been handling Physiotherapy and Occupational Therapy under the Department of Health & Family Welfare, for the last decade these subjects continued to be under the administrative ambit of the Department of Women & Child Development (DoWCD) in Odisha.

The DoWCD has not given proper attention to these areas of concern, rued experts. With road accidents on the rise, the requirement of institutions for physiotherapy and rehabilitation has gone up, but Odisha is totally lacking in this front, said Kishore Chandra Mahalik, who has suffered seriously due to a road accident and getting rehabilitated in PGI, Chandigarh.

Physiotherapy and Occupational Therapy courses in pioneer institutes like the All India Institute of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, Mumbai, Post Graduate Institute (PGI), Chandigarh and Jawaharlal Nehru Institute of Post Graduate Medical Education and Research, Puducherry are dealt with by the Union Ministry of Health & Family Welfare.

Interestingly, the Odisha Clinical Establishment (Control and Regulation) Act, 1990 mandates registration of a therapy clinic under the Department of Health & Family Welfare (DoHFW). And the course curriculum can be better regulated by the Director Medical Education and Training, which is under the DoHFW, said a therapist.Now after a lot of dillydallying, the State Government has taken the decision in this regard, and experts in the field are hoping that facilities will grow as there will be focused attention.

While a number of NGOs and other institutions were waiting to get clearance for setting up physiotherapy and rehabilitation centres in the State, response from the DoWCD was lukewarm, said an active NGO member.
