   Shall we have a discussion on this bill, every body ? Before we can send out our collective opinion and sugestions to the concerened authority ? And as Javed has pointed out, we have less time before the date for sugestions ends. Javed are u sure that the last date is 13th feb ? I thought I saw it to be jan 31st .

 (  Javed , by the way I changed the link u had given to a more precise one so that one can view the bill straight away ! hope thta's fine with u ! )

Javed , I was expectin some inputs from u on the reasons why u want to object to this council Bill? Is it just because we have been clubbed along with the Paramedics ( r we not a paramedic ? ) .And i feel that it has been stated seperately as the 'paramedics and physiotherapists ' in the Bill . I woudl have loved to hear more and more opinions abut this Bill .
 In another thread our member Jagan had been sayin few doubts abut the Bill . But since goin thru a copy of the same, i feel the doubts are a bit misplaced .
    

jagan wrote ...
  The proposed bill allegedly states Physical Therapists to be dumped under only one category-simply a " Technician" once for all that apparently curbs our independent clinical practice under Medical Professionals where Physiatrist is not an exception.
  ..... I never came across such a feelin while going thru the proposed Bill , neither does it curb th efree practice fo the therapists nor does it calls us technicians ! or does it ? Pls let me know wether it does !

  Moreover please take some time to understand the fact that Department of Health services, Govt of India is made up of of the following Members: 1. The Director General- Ony One person and that being a 'Physiatrist'. 2. Assistant Director General-approximately 6 in number comprising one Physiatrist, one Dentist, One Pharmacist etc but Zero Physiotherapist. The Director General and the one Assistant Director General (The TWO Physiatrists) in Dept of Health services, Govt of India, without the concensus of other Assistant generals have made up the bill. This is an alleged news that FPT got from New Delhi. But we believe that this issue can be nailed before the Court of Law. 
.... I dont want to believe that even if these two so called Physiatrists have made up this bill , that it is going to help them have any sort of control over the therapists or other groups inside the council . Let the Dept. of Health have any one as their director or so, how is it goin to affect our Council's work? Our Council is to be made up of may ppl..they include hig officials from the Health Dept , but does not end there..and for some regulations to be made up by the Council and a rule to be passed for the same, it needs not just one official, but all or atleast the majority..and in the proposed Bill we Therapists stands the majority compared to the non Physio members in it's ranks as commitee members; same with other two centtral councils too !

  I woudl like to know concerns of others too and find myself those points i might have missed which might damage our frree practice or our profession . Still, I woudl appreciate on the efforts taken by various bodies in voicing their concerns abut the bill and make a notice to the concerned authorities .And i appreciate Javed and Vasudha in voicing their concerns and actions they have taken !

my dear freinds , we are not understaniding the current problem vth the bill. in the definition of physiotherapy , it is very very very clearly wriiten that physiotherapy is a "MEDICALLLY DIRECTED" . it means we are have to follow the instructions of a medical person, for eg. if a case of low back ache comes to us then we cannot apply directly hot packs to that patient , first we have to dicuss with a medical person & if he permits us to apply hot packs,then only we will apply the hot packs . what is this yaar? we have studied 4.5 yrs bachelor course, we are having much knowledge abt it then y v go for there (medical) directions??? secondly, the physiotherapist are placed in technician ( grade"c").
is this wright ?
remember one thing we are also appreciating this bill, but this bill has to be modified in some points which should be in our favour.
dear robin sir its last date is 31st january 2008 only. pls move fast.
thanks

  Hello Khan, welcome to PB.Org ! Nice to have u here on the forums. Great to hear abut u'r views on the proposed Bill .But i hope u woudl understand that everyone here have the right to propose or oppose adn that they might having diferetn views on the same ! Bluntly labellin it under that lack of knowledge abut the bill would be too premature..kindly allow others enjoy their right to express their opinions on the subject without offending them !

FROM WHAT I COULD GATHER FROM THE BILL ON A GLANCE IS THAT THERE IS TO BE A SEPERATE COUNCIL FOR US PHYSIOS...... I THOUGHT THAT IS WHAT IS TO BE EXPECTED. I ALSO THOUGHT I READ SOMEWHERE THAT OCCUPATIONAL THERAPISTS WOULD ALSO COME UNDER THE COUNCIL.....

AS FAR AS THE MEDICALLY DIRECTED PART GOES I DO THINK IT DOES NEED TO BE CHANGED TO AFACT WHERE A LICENSED AND PRACTICING PHYSIO CAN GIVE TREATMENTS ON THEIR OWN AND ALSO ON THE BASIS OF THEIR KNOWLEDGE...

THE FACT OF THE MATTER IS THAT EVEN THOSE WHO HAVE LEARNT NATUROPATHY AS A DISTANCE EDUCATION MODULE ARE PRACTICING INDEPENDENTLY.

I THINK THE BILL HAS TO BE MODIFIED IN A WAY THAT THE INTRESTS OF THE PHYSIOS AND ALSO THE PUBLIC HAS TO BE TAKEN INTO CONSIDERATION......


THE WHOLE NEED OF THE COUNCIL IS TO LOOK INTO IF PHYSIOS ARE COMPETANT ENOUGH AND ALSO TO KEEP THE PUBLIC AWARE AND ALSO SAFE FROM PHYSIO QUACKS.......SO THE POINT OF INDEPENDANT PRACTICE CAN BE UP TO ACERTIAN EXTENT MONITORED BY THE COUNCIL.......I MEAN A REAL COUNCIL AND NOT THE WAY IAP IS HANDLING THINGS IN THIS COUNTRY TODAY.

    That's fine Khan . And i feel those r the same concerns said by Javed too but he seems to have found somehtin real a problem with them and wants it to be modified adn that was what he was calling out for I guess ! If u would have gone by some of the earlier forums u woudl have found how much Javed had been doin for the profession , and I'm sure that he might have found something realy worryin for us all in that proposed Bill . 
   
     As for myself, I feel that there is nothin much going there against us in that Bill in the literal term except that term " Medically directed '. I'm not sure what it does mean , if it does as said by Javed or Ajin , then it shoudl be a worryin factor for us !

   I havent found yet where the Bill says us to be technicians..I'm stil waiting there for more responses on the same . And for occupational therapists to be with us is not going to be prob..I have always felt that they r an extended arm of physical therapy, and after following more or less the same syllabus and exam papers why not we have a common council ?

   The bill goes for 3 seperate councils with seperate comittees and heads but a common stamp ! so i guees we have won mostly by having this council , but for sure wil have to have some modifications if the concerns r real !
