Özet

Introduction: Turkey is the second most rapidly aging country in the world which requires reconsideration of planning and healthcare services related to the health state of the older people. For qualified healthcare services, positive attitudes and behaviours of health professionals (physicians, nurses, physiotherapists etc.) towards older people beginning from the undergraduate period carry utmost importance. The aim of this study was to determine the attitudes and behaviour of physiotherapy students training in different regions of Turkey towards older people.
