VOLUNTEER MEDICAL AND HEALTH SERVICES TRAINING
The goal of the NMT Volunteer Professional Health Services project is to provide training specifically in the field of orthopedic and neurological rehabilitation in order to improve health services in countries in need. These are non government projects that have specific vocational and professional training in the health service area. All projects have a specific start and finish together with a specific budget to realize the project fulfilling the outcome objectives. Costs are limited and most expenses are covered by the participating volunteer training staff and internally.
The aim of the initiatives is to impart upon colleagues therapeutic guidelines on manual methods in NeuroMuscularTaping in order to deal with everyday rehabilitation associated with orthopedic, neurological, and pediatric disorders.
