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.
