International Osteopathic Healthcare Week 2022 – celebrating osteopathy

20 Apr 2022

Happy International Osteopathic Healthcare Week 2022!

The Osteopathy Board of Australia (the Board), along with the global osteopathic community, are celebrating all things osteopathy this week.

‘International Osteopathy Healthcare Week brings together osteopaths and osteopathic physicians to celebrate our shared philosophy and to educate patients and the public’, said Board Chair, Nikole Grbin.

‘This year’s theme, “Moving, Soothing, Grooving”, is a fun take on the important work osteopaths do and we encourage you this week to educate your communities and celebrate your profession!

‘International Osteopathic Healthcare Week gives us a good opportunity to step back and look at everything that’s been achieved in the past year, which has been another out-of-the-ordinary year as we get used to living with COVID-19. I continue to be amazed by the people in our profession and how they’ve handled the new and ongoing challenges we’re faced with.

‘It’s also a time to look forward to the bright and exciting future of our profession, which continues to grow and thrive. This promising future is all thanks to everyone involved in the osteopathy community - practitioners, educators, co-regulators , the accreditation council and the professional association, Osteopathy Australia. I thank you all for your wonderful work and contributions’. Nikole said.

International Osteopathic Healthcare Week runs from 18-24 April and is coordinated by OIA, the ‘International Osteopathic Alliance’, and Nikole Grbin is part of the organising committee. OIA have made some resources available on their website to help spread awareness of osteopathy and we encourage you to have a look.
