This blog post was submitted to the CPN from long time member Shaun Cleaver and colleague Anne Hudon. It raises the issue of the language diversity. This is certainly an issue we have not thoroughly addressed within the CPN: our executive meetings, and all of our international gatherings to date, have been/are conducted entirely in English (including the CPN Salon in South Africa and our un-conference in Wales), and although our website has some translated content (and a widget to translate most other content into a few languages) most remains in English.

Everything is political – even physiotherapy! This is a reblog of a post I recently wrote for University of Toronto Press about a guest editorial I published in Physiotherapy Canada. A huge thank you to UToronto Press for the permission to reblog here. There is a notable absence of conversations about the politics of physiotherapy. I have been a physiotherapist for over 20 years. I have mainly worked clinically, and more recently entered academia. My drive to shift professional gears was that I wanted to spend some time building my own capacity to engage in some deep questions I had always had about my profession. What was of interest to me was the ostensibly apolitical nature of … [Read more...] about Everything is political – Even physiotherapy!
