While 2020 has been an unprecedented year around the world, this is especially true for the health workforce who are working tirelessly in the fight against COVID-19.

This new disease has required health professionals to stop, reflect and quickly adapt in order to care for patients with COVID-19.
And physiotherapists are one key group working hard to help people throughout this pandemic. Currently, there are more than 35,000 physiotherapists working in Australia and about one in five are working in a hospital on the frontline caring for patients with COVID-19. This work often begins in the intensive care unit (ICU), where the sickest of patients are cared for.
