**COVID-19 Update**

In the current situation with COVID-19, GLA:D® Australia recommends that patients consult the relevant state/territory COVID-19 guidelines to maximise their safety.  If you are aged over 70, have other health or medical issues, or are concerned about risks to your health with a face-to-face service, please discuss this with your physiotherapist. Telehealth options are available through a number of accredited GLA:D® Australia clinics.

GLA:D® Australia Training Courses

The GLA:D® Australia Team is monitoring COVID-19 (Coronavirus) information and advice closely. 

Please protect your health and the health of others by following the Australian Department of Health guidelines 



Training and supporting Physiotherapists throughout COVID-19

Our online training program will form the foundation of what we will offer for the rest of 2020, although face-to-face training may be part of the picture in the future.  We are excited about the opportunities this may bring in terms of accessibility to our courses for physiotherapists around Australia.

GLA:D® Australia will continue to operate as usual in all other ways: managing the registry, replying to emails and advocating for high value evidence based education and exercise delivered by physiotherapists.

The team at GLA:D® Australia are committed to ensuring that physiotherapists are not only trained to provide the highest level of evidence-based care, but are also supported to deliver it.  As a not for profit initiative, this means we can only cater to a certain number of attendees on each course, but we will strive to increase the availability of courses where possible.

NB: The GLA:D® Australia course is only open to Physiotherapists registered in Australia and only Physiotherapists who have successfully completed the course can deliver the GLA:D® Program.

Course Structure:

Online courses will have three modules:

  • MODULE 1: Lectures – Full day
  • MODULE 2: 3.5-hour practical session during the following week – this may be online or face-to-face; details will be included in the course description.
