A total of 18 physical therapists (PTs) from the US will be among the main speakers at the World Confederation for Physical Therapy (WCPT) Congress to be held in Singapore May 1–4, 2015.
The American PTs will be contributing to focused symposia on a wide range of topics including rehabilitation and Parkinson disease, maximizing augmented mobility for children, pain education, advocacy, physical therapy in the intensive care unit, and the use of interactive technology in rehabilitation for young people, among others. A complete list of all participants and presentations (.pdf) is available at the WCPT Congress website.
In a press release from WCPT, International Scientific Committee Chair Aimée Stewart said, “We’ve had more proposals for focused symposia than ever before, which means we have been able to select topics with high-caliber speakers that physical therapists all over the world will be excited to hear from." Each focused symposium is organized by a convener who leads an international group of speakers through linked research-focused presentations.
Details about the symposia and the program for WCPT Congress 2015 may be found at the WCPT congress webpage.
