  2. As an ex phys I think this is a fantastic representation of how these often confused professions differ, but it is also great to show how we can work together for overall patient care. Thank you for putting this in very patient-friendly terms. Well done, I will be sharing!

    • I’m glad you found it useful! I’ve found recently that in addition to most people not actually knowing who or what an Exercise Physiologist is, there also seems to be a great deal of confusion about where the roles of the above 3 professions overlap. I think it’s important to educate people about the differences in a fairly basic manner, without it being overly complicated, and what better way to do that than through an inforgraphic? I researched the scopes of practice for all 3 professions and used my current experience and understanding of how they relate to each other to put it all together.
