Physiopedia Participates in the World Physiotherapy Congress!

Every two years, the World Physiotherapy Congress (formally known as the World Confederation for Physical Therapy – or WCPT) has given physiotherapists and rehabilitation specialists an opportunity to share ideas, as well as to reflect upon and plan the future of our profession(s). This year, due to the challenges presented by COVID, the World Physiotherapy Congress has created a digital space for presentations and networking opportunities for rehabilitation professionals to connect from around the world.

Physiopedia is proud to be participating in this year’s congress, from 9 – 11 April 2021, with multiple Physiopedia specific presentations, as well as a few team member’s presenting their own research.

Congratulations to the team and the following Presenters for their contributions to rehabilitation evidence-based knowledge.

A special congratulations to Dr. Nicole Beamish, who has been awarded the following Congress Award: World Physiotherapy Outstanding Platform Presentation Award: North America Caribbean Region.
