BASRaT Guidance to registrants for operating during Covid
In response to the announcements of enhanced restrictions in all four nations of the UK, we have updated our guidance for operating during COVID. The updated guidance is available here
Now more than ever, it is important to utilise telehealth, where possible, in order to limit the number of contacts you have with people outside of your household. This will help to slow the spread of the virus and protect the health of you, your family and your patients.
To support remote delivery of care, BASRaT Registrants have access to RehabGuru as a membership benefit. This offers bookings & scheduling, telehealth and exercise prescription. Any registrants not yet signed up that would like access can email firstname.lastname@example.org
If you have any questions about how the latest guidance may affect your practice, please contact email@example.com

Becoming a global family of 60,000 healthcare professionals and enabling Sport Rehabilitators to work in certain countries
2021 will be a landmark in the history of Sport Rehabilitation, both in the UK and internationally. After many years of work and planning, in June 2021 BASRaT is due to sign the international arrangement framework that will be unique in the UK.
Sport Rehabilitators will be recognised to work in certain countries without gaining further qualifications or degrees. We will be part of a global family of >60,000 healthcare professionals, collaborating to ensure best practice and quality assured high standards, both educational and professional.
As part of the quality assurance and to allow portability between countries, we will be introducing an independent capstone exam at the end of all our accredited HE programmes; one of the requisites of future BASRaT registration will be to pass this certification exam. All registrants already on our register in June 2021 will be grandparented; anyone wishing to register after that date will need to have both completed one of our accredited programmes and pass the certification exam.
The portability between the UK and countries like Canada and the United States will be overseen and managed by CGFNS International; the world’s largest credentials evaluation organisation for the nursing and allied health professions since 1977. This will allow Sport Rehabilitators to apply to go and work in countries like the USA without undertaking any additional qualifications in the destination country.
