WCPT Congress Update
August 2018 
Final call for abstracts
There are just three weeks left to submit an abstract before the 6th September deadline.

Don't miss this opportunity to present to a global audience. Whether you have research to present or an innovative service, practice, resource or theory to showcase - WCPT encourages physical therapists from all over the world, at every level of the profession, to submit an abstract that:

  • reports on the latest research with original scientific data
  • addresses new and unique developments in practice, theory, education, management, policy and resources
  • describes innovative ways in which established methods have been adapted to meet the changing needs of practice
Submit your abstract: www.wcpt.org/wcpt2019/programme/abstracts

Take a look at the following guidelines and tips:
Give the Gift of Congress
WCPT is inviting donations to a bursary programme to help physical therapists from low and lower middle-income countries attend congress in 2019. Your donation to the bursary programme will benefit not just the individual physical therapist but will also have a lasting legacy in their own country, for the profession and the general public.

WCPT is aiming to raise £20,000 for delegates who otherwise wouldn't be able to attend congress. If donations exceed this target, it will mean more physical therapists could attend.

Over £2,600 has already been raised through donations from delegates who have registered and from the Incredible Impacts award WCPT received for its range of outstanding legacy activities at the WCPT Congress 2017. 

How to donate Whatever the size of your donation, it will help support a physical therapist to attend WCPT Congress 2019. Thank you!

You can find out more about the bursary programme: www.wcpt.org/wcpt2019/registration/bursary
Details on how to apply for a bursary will be available shortly.

Language support at Congress   Final call for abstract reviewers
Although the official language of the congress is English and all sessions must be submitted and presented in English, WCPT recognises that for many delegates English will not be their first language. WCPT will therefore be running some clinical visits in other languages, as well as facilitating interactions in other languages at selected coursesnetworking sessions and Indaba sessions.

If English is not your first language there are more tips on how to get the most out of congress at: www.wcpt.org/wcpt2019/language
Do you have experience in reviewing abstracts or journal articles? The Congress Programme Committee is now recruiting potential reviewers of abstracts submitted for presentation at congress.
