There are less than eight weeks before the submission deadline for the call for abstracts on 6th September.
Now is the time to start preparing your abstract - get ready to present your research or showcase an innovative service, practice, resource or theory. This is your opportunity to present to a global audience at the profession’s largest international congress. WCPT encourages physical therapists from all over the world, at every level of the profession, to submit their abstracts.
Abstracts are invited that:
report on the latest research with original scientific data
address new and unique developments in practice, theory, education, management, policy and resources
describe innovative ways in which established methods have been adapted to meet the changing needs of practice
Abstract mentoring programme: if you are new to presenting at a WCPT Congress or English is not your first language, please take a look at the abstract mentoring programme - which is only in place until 31st July. For more information about submitting an abstract:
Are you registering to attend the whole congress? If so, why not make the most of your registration and add a clinical visit - a unique opportunity to see how physical therapy is practised in Switzerland.
physioswiss has arranged clinical visits for congress delegates to a range of public and private physical therapy facilities, across a wide area of interests. Most clinical visits will be supported in English and French and some will offer additional language support.
Networking sessions address topical issues, challenges and opportunities offering an informal opportunity to meet and talk with colleagues in a particular field of interest. www.wcpt.org/wcpt2019/programme/nws
Taking place on the 9th – 10th and 14th – 15th May, pre- and post-congress courses will cover a wide range of subjects and are uniquely designed to complement the main scientific programme. www.wcpt.org/wcpt2019/programme/courses
