Social Worker

 

 

This is what some social workers who work in the mental health sector told us what they thought the role of an EP is:

 

  • “Help patients with physical activities while in the wards”

  • “Not entirely sure but suspect the role would include recovery of movement post injury and/or recovery from sedentary lifestyles especially for those with serious mental illness. Including the effects of long term medication usage (weight gain)”

 

 

 

Reflection Point

Consider what the social workers say the role of the EP is. Are there any misconceptions?  What have they got correct?  What is missing? Does anything surprise you?
