Projecting the Future of Physiotherapy

The Physiotherapy Workforce Data Modelling (WDM) tool enables you to:

  • Review and analyse the predicted supply of physiotherapists
  • Review and analyse the predicted demand of the physiotherapy workforce
  • View predicted physiotherapy workforce surplus and shortage
  • A snapshot of the support workforce supply
  • Save the information you view to your own local computer files.

This is the 2016 update of the model, which includes revisions to:

  • the baseline number of registered physiotherapists as reported by the HCPC
  • the HEI training numbers as reported in 2015/16
  • the return in investment from physiotherapy in falls prevention

WDM works on modern browsers including Chrome, Firefox and recent versions of Internet Explorer, if you’re experiencing technical difficulty it is likely due to using Internet Explorer before version 9 which doesn’t support the WDM
