National Allied Health Professions Week 2019

National Allied Health Professions Week 2019

National Allied Health Professions Week takes place annually during the first full week of November.

During November 4 – 8, 2019, National Allied Health Professions Week serves as a way to celebrate hard working professionals and honor the valuable contributions they make to patients’ lives and the healthcare system as a whole.

Significance of Allied Health Professions

According to The Association of Schools of Allied Health Professions, in 1967, the Association of Schools of Allied Health Professionals (ASAHP) was established in response to the need for an association to relate to improving the quality and quantity of needed workforce in health professions.

The term “allied health” was used for setting up the association and led to the passage of the Allied Health Professions Personnel Training Act. The act ratified the concept of unifying all the disciplines that comprise allied health into academic units.

Allied healthcare professionals now make up almost 60% of the entire healthcare workforce. Professions include physical therapists, medical technologists, occupational therapists, and more. Jobs in the industry have increased by 3 million between 2010-2020.

On behalf of PassportUSA – Health Carousel, we want to thank all of our allied healthcare professionals for their dedication to their profession and to our company.

We are actively hiring registered nurses! If you are a RN who wishes to live and work in the USA, simply click the button below to apply with us today and we’ll help get your journey to the USA underway!

World Physical Therapy Day is celebrated every year on September 8. It was organized by the World Confederation for Physical Therapy as a day for physical therapists from all over the world to raise awareness about the crucial contribution the profession makes to keeping people well, mobile and independent.

  • It’s important to dispel myths associated with chronic pain.
  • Exercise is beneficial and physical therapists play an important role in developing patient-centered activity and exercise programs.

International Nurses Day 2019

International Nurses Day 2019

International Nurses Day is celebrated around the world every May 12, the anniversary of Florence Nightingale’s birth. The International Council of Nurses designated this year’s theme as “Nurses: A voice to lead – Health for All”.

Nurses are essential in transforming health care and health systems such that no person is left behind, without access to care or impoverished because of their need for health care. Health for All means not just the availability of health services, but a complete state of physical and mental health that enables a person to lead a socially and economically productive life.
