3. Characteristic of societal impact

Scientific meetings have been organized in Rzeszów for many years in order to increase knowledge in the field of rehabilitation. These meetings include International Rehabilitation Days (12 editions), Rehabilitation Assembly of the PodkarpackieVoivodship (28 editions), Scientific and Training Meetings of the Podkarpackie Branch of the Polish Society of Physiotherapy (15 editions), Meetings of the Little University of Rzeszów (7 editions).

International Rehabilitation Days. The main goal of the conference is to enable young doctors and physiotherapists to listen to the reports of authorities in the presented field, and to enable them to present their first research. The conference is also an opportunity for students and PhD students to present their work. The result of the meeting is an annual scientific publication, with a collection of the most important works, widely available (e.g. Rehabilitation 2019, Rehabilitation 2018, Rehabilitation 2017 etc.)

The Rehabilitation Assembly of the PodkarpackieVoivodeship is above all an opportunity for people with disabilities to meet with local and central authorities, representatives of the rehabilitation world, the media, etc. These people have the opportunity to present the current needs and problems of people with disabilities. The effect of the activities of the Rehabilitation Assemblies and Caritas Foundation of the Rzeszów Diocese was the creation of the Clinical Regional Rehabilitation and Educational Center for Children and Youth of the name of Blessed John Paul II in Rzeszów.

The organizers invited well-known figures in the field of physiotherapy and rehabilitation to the Scientific and Training Meetings of the Podkarpackie Branch of the Polish Society of Physiotherapy. Participants (physiotherapists, doctors) had the opportunity to learn about the latest trends, research results or practical techniques used to improve patients.

Classes at the Little University of Rzeszów are classes organized for children from the local community. Children will learn the specifics of work in various medical professions. They learn, for example, the basics of first aid, preventing posture defects, belaying people with disabilities or how to eat healthy food.
