“Individual commitment to a group effort – that is what makes a team work, a company work, a society work, a civilisation work.” ~ Vince Lombardi
And this is what makes Physiopedia work! Over the past five years Physiopedia had had over 81,000 edits from nearly 3,000 physiotherapists and physical therapists from all over the world. These are individuals making an effort to create, update and improve the Physiopedia content, and by doing so they are part of the team that has built this amazing resource for our profession.
Some of these individuals have worked completely independently, such as Tyler Shultz who at the time was a student and contributing to pages to create his own revision aids and Wendy Walker, an expert in Facial Palsy who has created a great resource on this topic. Others are working as part of a small team effort within this large team. The students that work in Physiopedia as part of their formal assessment have taken part in some really great educational projects and developed some great content such as the Pathophysiology of Complex Patient Problems project from Bellarmine University and the Evidence Based Practice Project from the University of Brussels. In another corner are our volunteers are working in their own specified roles to contribute to the success of this project.
Individual commitment to Physiopedia comes in many different forms and every one of these individuals is a part of this group community effort to build a free and open resource for our profession. They are what makes Physiopedia work, they are what has made this the largest physiotherapy website in the world. You know who you are, we thank you!
