Visiting a physiotherapist for the first time can be a bit intimidating if you don't know what to expect. We have therefore written a guide that helps you prepare.
Luke & Barker Inc. is a physiotherapy provider which strives at all times to maintain the highest ethical standards in every aspect of our business.We actively support lifelong learning as espoused by both the Health Professions Council of South Africa (HPCSA) as our regulatory authority and the South African S
ociety of Physiotherapy (SASP) as our professional body.
The basic entry-level requirement for entry into the physiotherapy profession is a 4-year BSc (Physio) degree. It is a requirement of many universities that applicants for this degree have at least 15 hours of clinical experience in a physiotherapy work environment. Luke & Barker Inc. support the profession in this regard, under our “Shadow Day” initiative, and have decided to make the company available to fulfill 5 of the observation hours required for learners from the West Rand.
We will provide experience of Physiotherapy in Private Practice. Learners are encourage to fill the remaining observation hour requirements in other areas of physiotherapy, including the Public Sector and in Specialised education Prospective students are encouraged to book a slot from 08:00-13:00 where they will “shadow” one or more of the staff of Luke & Barker Inc. to observe the normal workings of private practice physiotherapy.
Prospective students will be exposed to both in-hospital and rooms patient treatments. This is a professional and privileged environment. It is an ethical and legal requirement that permission (consent to be observed) be obtained from each and every patient that the prospective student observes. Similarly, it is an ethical and legal requirement that prospective students hold themselves to the professional Code of Conduct appropriate to this environment. A copy of the Code of Conduct for the SASP is attached to this document. It should be read and understood prior to attending the “Shadow day”. Prospective students will be required to sign an “Acknowledgement of Reading” document prior to the session beginning, and to hold themselves to this professional standard.
