PhysiotherapeutIn (Physical Therapist PRF 8545) Bei Interesse PRF Nr. angeben

Contribution to Strategy: In the new long-term strategy that has been created for the Centre Handicapés en Avant (CHA), we have identified the need to have on staff a fully-qualified Physical Therapist. This post is essential in order to apply for the proper governmental papers with the authorities for our work in Mahadaga. Besides having the appropriate administrative papers, a fully trained PT would be able to advance our work for people with disabilities by providing better care and better training for our in-home case workers and PT aides. Our long-term goal is to have a Burkinabé PT. But because there is currently no one available, we need to send one of our own employees for the training. This is a four-year process. A short-term (or long-term) Associate PT would allow us to continue and improve our work so that we can send one of our Burkinabé team members to the four-year PT training.

Ministry: HY- Occupational/Physical Therapy

Responsibilities: A Physical Therapist would be in charge of the therapy activities that happen at the CHA and in-home therapy by CHA personnel. In addition to providing good care to our patients, the PT would also be in charge of training our Burkinabé personnel (or organizing training opportunities outside of the Centre).

Other Ministry Possibilities: Training in the two SIM medical centers in Burkina Faso.

Future Plans: If an expatriate missionary is required to fill this position, what plans are there for a national to be trained and developed to take over this role in the future? Our long-term goal is to have a Burkinabé PT. But because there is currently no one available, we need to send one of our own employees for the training. This is a four-year process. A short-term (or long-term) Associate PT would allow us to continue and improve our work so that we can send one of our Burkinabé team members to the four-year PT training.
