WCPT Congress Update - January 2018

WCPT Congress Update
January 2018 
Call for focused symposia deadline
The deadline to submit a proposal for a focused symposium is the 23rd February. If you are an expert in your field, this is your opportunity to present to an international audience and create a global conversation. 

As one of the congress's key sessions, focused symposia enable high profile speakers to attract large audiences. They provide a forum where cutting edge topics can be explored and debated, creating an insightful learning experience for clinicians, managers, educators, researchers and/or policy makers.

The call is open to any topic relevant to the profession, however, the following topics of particular interest were identified through WCPT’s market research:
  • advancing and defining the scope of physical therapy practice, including advances in technology and education
  • how physical therapy needs to change to meet the demands of the ageing population
  • the unique contribution of physical therapists in the physical activity agenda
  • challenging perceptions of pain management across the lifespan and across all fields of practice
  • innovative approaches to address health system funding issues.
Submissions should address the topic from an international/diverse perspective by including presentations from a range of countries and preferably from three different WCPT regions. 

To access the online submission system and download the submission guidelines go to: www.wcpt.org/wcpt2019/programme/fs/call

All submissions will be notified of the outcome on 27th April 2018.
