The preparation of such physical therapists requires development of a more client-centered community-oriented education programme"

"This paper presents a descriptive classification framework developed in a training workshop conducted with a community based rehabilitation (CBR) service, in Roi-Et (Northeast Thailand) in June 2002. The "Roi-Et Classification" is based on an adaptation of Bronfenbrenner's Social Ecology model, combined with other frameworks.
