  • International Pediatric Organization Posts Guidelines at WCPT Website

    The International Organisation of Physical Therapists in Paediatrics (IOPTP) has posted information on clinical and administrative guidelines at the World Confederation for Physical Therapy's (WCPT) website at www.wcpt.org/ioptp/resources.

    IOPTP began collecting information from its member organizations following round table sessions held at WCPT's 2011 congress in which attendees requested that IOPTP provide information about guidelines (practice and administrative) and fact sheets for health care professionals and consumers. IOPTP will add new information as additional guidelines and fact sheets are identified by its member organizations.

    In other WCPT news, physical therapists from around the world heard about the impact that WCPT education policies are having on the development of the profession at the European Physiotherapy Education Congress, held in Vienna, Austria, in November. The congress attracted 587 delegates from 48 countries. The theme, "Advancing the Professional Profile," focused on continuing professional development as a means of promoting evidence based physical therapy. Speakers examined innovative ways in which to continue professional development throughout a career in physical therapy.
