WCPT Congress 2017: call for members of the ISC

IFOMPT Conference

Global campaign: Inclusion saves lives

From the President and Secretary General

As you read this, we will be completing the WCPT General Meeting in Singapore, and turning our thoughts to the opening ceremony of the WCPT Congress 2015, which begins on Friday.

 

There will be approximately 3,500 people there – and our registration statistics indicate that for around two thirds of them this will be their first WCPT Congress. It's great news that so many new people are discovering the congress, and have the opportunity to profit from its learning and networking opportunities. The profession can only benefit.

 

For those who can't attend, there are still ways to share in the unique opportunities congress offers over the next few days. You can look at the programme (www.wcpt.org/congress/programme), follow our rolling news updates from congress (www.wcpt.org/congress/articles), follow what's going on Twitter through the #WCPT2015 hashtag and then – when the congress is over – access the dozens of presentations via our website.

 

Whether you're in Singapore or not, we strongly believe that a WCPT Congress has something to offer everyone.

 

Kind regards
Marilyn Moffat and Brenda J Myers

The WCPT Executive Committee is seeking applications for membership on the International Scientific Committee (ISC) for the WCPT Congress 2017. The closing date for applications is 30th May 2015. Details can be found at: bit.ly/1HqC2DZ

 

Applications from individual physical therapists belonging to a WCPT member organisation will be considered but they need the support of their member organisation. Individuals wishing to serve must submit:

Applications should be submitted by e-mail, no later than 30th May to Esther Bright ebright@wcpt.org.

FREE course on rehabilitation of people with lower limb amputations

Physiopedia is running a free six week course on rehabilitation of people with lower limb amputations. The course will start on 1st June 2015 and you can register now at: bit.ly/1yneXk4.

 

The course has been developed with the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) and will be run in collaboration with them. ICRC supports rehabilitation services for amputees worldwide. Over the six weeks a wide range of theoretical concepts of amputee rehabilitation that can be applied to clinical practice will be covered.

New WCPT network

WCPT Future Network is WCPT's newest network and is for physical therapist students and early career professionals who have been qualified less than five years.

 

The aim of the network is to engage physical therapist students and early career professionals with WCPT and their member organisations, encouraging, promoting and facilitating the interchange of ideas and activities of common interest.

Call for full disclosure of trial results

The World Health Organization has issued a public statement calling for the disclosure of results from clinical trials, whatever the result. The move aims to ensure that decisions related to the safety and efficacy of vaccines, drugs and medical devices for use by populations are supported by the best available evidence.

The WHO statement falls into line with the objectives of the All Trials campaign for research transparency, which WCPT signed up to in 2013: www.alltrials.net/.

WCPT E-Update - March 2015


Please forward this email to your members
WCPT E-Update
March 2015
From the President and Secretary General
Non-communicable diseases (NCDs)
Report: Ending childhood obesity
UN disability newsletter
Regulation conference 2016
MedBridge
World Health Day
Peta-Ann Schmidt receiving the WCPT Humanitarian Service Award in 2011
From the President and Secretary General
We are looking forward to presenting the WCPT Awards on 30th April during the gala dinner being held at the time of the WCPT General Meeting in Singapore. The awards, including the Mildred Elson Award launched in 1987, recognise outstanding contributions to physical therapy on an international level.
 
As the world gets smaller, international recognition is increasingly important for those professionals who extend their influence beyond national boundaries to further their profession and promote global health. These are special people.
 
There's a lot of commitment in our profession. Many physical therapists give up their time – and sometimes much more - to contribute to the work of the profession at national, regional and international levels. They undertake projects, organise events, and sit on committees among other things. We'll be seeing it too in the approximately 250 volunteers who will guide and help delegates during the WCPT Congress 2015, after the General Meeting. 
 
During our time in Singapore, we'll have plenty of opportunity to relish everything that is good in our profession.
 

Kind regards
Marilyn Moffat and Brenda J Myers
