The European Congress on Physiotherapy Education has also seen the first stage launch of PHYSIOPEDIA.
Physiopedia is an ambitious project that aims to eventually offer an evidence-based knowledge resource for rehabilitation professionals throughout the world. Through utilising collaborative wiki technology Physiopedia is a place where all physiotherapists and physical therapists can participate by sharing, contributing and building
knowledge to develop a global understanding. For educators Physiopedia offers an opportunity to involve their students in this knowledge creation process as part of an educational program.
This project is currently being developed with universities from the UK and the USA. We are now at a stage where we are keen to establish further partnerships with other institutions from around the world that can help us with the initial population of the site with valuable content. We are also keen to engage therapy educators and their students to use this resource as a learning tool in their educational programme. Additionally we are seeking input from clinical
experts who by adding their opinions on specific topics will add great value to this resource.
