Advancing physical therapy in Vietnam
Education and engagement were the focus of a three-day stakeholder WCPT workshop in February with representatives from local universities and the newly-founded Viet Nam Physiotherapy Association (VNPTA) in Ho Chi Minh City.

The workshop was designed to kickstart the ADvAncing PhysioTherapy In ViEtnam (ADAPTIVE) project. The ADAPTIVE project will review the physical therapy education programmes in Vietnam to assist them to develop towards international standards, and to help VNPTA achieve its goal of becoming a WCPT member organisation.

Jonathon Kruger, WCPT chief executive officer, said: ‘This workshop demonstrates how WCPT is building capacity around the globe. It’s great to be able to be part of making change happen in Vietnam and helping raise the profile and influence of physical therapy in the country.'

Conference planning workshop in Benin
Conference planning and event management were the topics for a two-day workshop for WCPT member organisations and provisional member organisations in west Africa.

Mathias Ahissan Krou, President of the Association Ivoirienne des Masseurs-Kinésithérapeutes, said: 'It was a beautiful experience on all levels - relational, knowledge, learning. The WCPT membership engagement approach makes us confident knowing there is a mentor behind on whom we can count. As it is said, "what deserves to be done, deserves to be well done".'

WCPT Deputy Chief Executive Tracy Bury, WCPT Congress Manager Natasha Joyner, and WCPT Head of Programmes and Development Sidy Dieye delivered the workshop, which took place in Cotonou, Benin.

Um coração parando o jogo


Uma equipe de Críquete da Inglaterra estava em turnê na Nova Zelândia em fevereiro de 1975 para disputar duas partidas. Na segunda partida o batedor da Nova Zelândia Ewen Chatfield foi atingido por uma bola arremessada pelo inglês Peter Lever, ficando inconsciente devido a uma parada respiratória. Nesse momento entra em cena o Fisioterapeuta Bernard Thomas da equipe da Inglaterra: Thomas traciona a língua do jogador, faz massagem cardíaca e respiração boca-a-boca. Um Chatfield inconsciente, mas estabilizado foi retirado de campo e levado ao hospital, onde identificaram fratura no crânio.

Is this the first time you're attending a WCPT Congress or maybe it's your first visit to Europe?

If so, WCPT will be offering a "WCPT friends" session in the Indaba zone on the first morning of congress. This is where you will be able to get some tips and insights from experienced WCPT Congress goers and buddy up with delegates who are also new to the congress experience.

WCPT President
Podcast
Earlier this month WCPT President Emma K Stokes spoke to Krysta Wark on the Canadian Physiotherapy Association’s Global Physio Podcast. Highlighting the role of WCPT as the global body for the profession, the podcast also covers the importance of professional associations, global policy change, young physiotherapists as leaders and where Emma sees physiotherapy in the future. https://apple.co/2SNDcb9

#MyPTArticleOfTheMonth
Find out which article Emma K Stokes chose for PEDro's #MyPTArticleOfTheMonth. Taken from the Harvard Business Review (https://hbr.org/2018/09/give-yourself-a-break-the-power-of-self-compassion), the article looks at the power of self compassion in the face of regrets or setbacks. Emma also chose an article exploring how taking a self-compassion mindset when considering regret experiences can lead to more personal growth.

Zhang JW, Chen S. Self-compassion promotes personal improvement from regret experiences via acceptance. Pers Soc Psychol Bull 2016;42(2):244-58 (https://doi.org/10.1177/0146167215623271)

World Tuberculosis Day
The World Health Organization will commemorate World Tuberculosis (TB) Day on 24th March to raise public awareness about the devastating health, social and economic consequences of TB, and to step up efforts to end the global TB epidemic.

TB remains the world’s deadliest infectious killer. Each day, nearly 4,500 people lose their lives to TB and close to 30,000 people fall ill with this preventable and curable disease. Global efforts to combat TB have saved an estimated 54 million lives since the year 2000 and reduced the TB mortality rate by 42%. To accelerate the TB response in countries to reach targets, Heads of State came together and made strong commitments to end TB at the first-ever UN High Level Meeting in September 2018.
