ISPO Survey on WHO Standards for Prosthetic and Orthotic Service Provision
Following the publication of the WHO Standards for Prosthetics and Orthotics in 2017 and the ISPO Education Standards for Prosthetic/Orthotic Occupations in 2018, there has been a huge effort to make assistive technology more available and accessible.
With a view to getting an understanding about each country’s current status relating to prosthetic and orthotic services, and in order to assess relevance and priorities of the standards, ISPO is gathering information by surveying its members. The survey is accessible ONLY to ISPO members.
About the survey
The survey is divided into four individual parts and consists of 3 questions on each of the 60 standards. There are thus 180 questions in total, for which it is estimated to require 30 minutes to answer. You may however choose to answer the four parts at different times if you prefer to spend shorter amounts of time on it. Please note that it is required to reply to all the parts of the survey and that the survey is strictly anonymous.
The results will be shared with each ISPO Member Society: based on the gathered country data, ISPO Member Societies will produce a consensus report. In a final step, the results would be used for further collaboration with WHO.
To facilitate the development of a broader understanding, the survey is now available in French, Spanish, Arabic, traditional and simplified Chinese, as well as English in order to facilitate responsiveness throughout the Society worldwide.
