Final call for abstracts
There are just three weeks left to submit an abstract before the 6th September deadline. Don't miss this opportunity to present to a global audience. Whether you have research to present or an innovative service, practice, resource or theory to showcase - WCPT encourages physical therapists from all over the world, at every level of the profession, to submit an abstract that:
  • reports on the latest research with original scientific data
  • addresses new and unique developments in practice, theory, education, management, policy and resources
  • describes innovative ways in which established methods have been adapted to meet the changing needs of practice
Submit your abstract: www.wcpt.org/wcpt2019/programme/abstracts

Take a look at the following guidelines and tips:
Give the Gift of Congress
WCPT is inviting donations to a bursary programme to help physical therapists from low and lower middle-income countries attend congress in 2019. Your donation to the bursary programme will benefit not just the individual physical therapist but will also have a lasting legacy in their own country, for the profession and the general public.

WCPT is aiming to raise £20,000 for delegates who otherwise wouldn't be able to attend congress. If donations exceed this target, it will mean more physical therapists could attend.

Over £2,600 has already been raised through donations from delegates who have registered and from the Incredible Impacts award WCPT received for its range of outstanding legacy activities at the WCPT Congress 2017.

How to donate Whatever the size of your donation, it will help support a physical therapist to attend WCPT Congress 2019. Thank you!

You can find out more about the bursary programme: www.wcpt.org/wcpt2019/registration/bursary
 
Details on how to apply for a bursary will be available shortly.
Beat the Super Early Bird deadline
Save up to 35% and book your registration at the Super Early Bird rate.

Whether you are a loyal fan or have decided that this will be your first WCPT Congress - make the most of the brand new Super Early Bird rate and save €£$ on your registration fee. Join us in Geneva in May 2019 where you will be able to hear from world experts, listen to global perspectives and make connections with international colleagues.

Here are a few comments from previous congress delegates:

"The experience of WCPT surpassed my expectations"
"The WCPT Congress was truly one of the most inspirational experiences of my career"
"The event was an eye opener, offering more learning, sharing and engagement opportunities than I had expected"
"Being part of the Physiotherapy family is such a big privilege"
"It is magic … absolute magic … it fills your soul"

What are you waiting for? Register now: www.wcpt.org/wcpt2019/registration
 
Language support at Congress   Final call for abstract reviewers
Although the official language of the congress is English and all sessions must be submitted and presented in English, WCPT recognises that for many delegates English will not be their first language. WCPT will therefore be running some clinical visits in other languages, as well as facilitating interactions in other languages at selected coursesnetworking sessions and Indaba sessions.

If English is not your first language there are more tips on how to get the most out of congress at: www.wcpt.org/wcpt2019/language
 
 
Do you have experience in reviewing abstracts or journal articles? The Congress Programme Committee is now recruiting potential reviewers of abstracts submitted for presentation at congress.

Closing date for applications: 23rd August 2018

 - Pesquisa objetiva compreender a utilização clínica da ultrassonografia por Fisioterapeutas

Um estudo internacional está sendo realizado para compreender o uso clínico de imagem ultrassonográfica por Fisioterapeutas. Os resultados da pesquisa vão contribuir para a compreensão da realidade atual sobre a utilização de imagem ultrassonográfica por esses profissionais para possibilitar uma melhor identificação das oportunidades de treinamento, além de estabelecer redes de contato e grupos de interesse para aqueles que utilizam a ultrassonografia de imagens. 

Além disso, a pesquisa também identificará as barreiras que os impedem  de utilizar a ultrassonografia para que elas possam ser diminuídas e resolvidas no futuro. Os resultados da pesquisa poderão ser utilizados tanto em publicações de periódicos científicos como em apresentações de conferências.

- Cobertura vacinal 2018 no Brasil

No ano passado, a cobertura vacinal para a Poliomielite, deveria ser de 95% entretanto,  ficou em apenas 77%, bem como as taxas de outras  vacinas para crianças menores de 1 ano, ficaram todas abaixo da meta. Configura-se desse modo um alto risco para  a saúde da população, abrindo  caminho para  doenças já erradicadas ou com baixos registros epidemiológicos retornem. Para exemplificar, vejamos  os casos de coqueluche que tiveram leve crescimento do ano de 2016 para o ano de2017, quando o registro era de queda desde 2010.

Doenças que preocupam: Sarampo, Poliomielite, Coqueluche, Difteria e Hepatite A.
