The role of the paediatric physiotherapist in Ireland is both diverse and demanding. A variety of skills is required to meet the needs of this patient group and assist in their development and growth. The encouragement, education and inclusion of parents and carers are vital to ensure optimal management of the child. The physiotherapists working at OLCHC display all these attributes and capabilities. Despite the demanding environments in which they work, these physiotherapists promote positive and nurturing atmospheres, combining their specialised skills with a dedication to meeting the needs of their patients. The role of the paediatric physiotherapist in Ireland will continue to evolve, especially as further comprehensive research is required to consolidate evidence-based practice and determine optimal treatment approaches. The future for paediatric physiotherapy is exciting and opportunities for research, learning and development are numerous, with Irish physiotherapists leading the way in providing comprehensive and innovative care for their patients
