IOPTWH involvement at WCPT Congress 2017

The IOPTWH executive officers are looking forward to the Organization’s involvement at WCPT Congress in July; just a few months away! Further details and regular updates on the programme are available at including a provisional programme.

Please note that this is still subject to change so – with the exception of the pre-Congress course - the dates might alter. The final programme will be confirmed in April.

1st July Pre-Congress course: Pregnancy-related low back and pelvic girdle pain: evidence-based physiotherapy practice. This course was submitted by IOPTWH in collaboration with the International Federation of Orthopaedic Manipulative Physical Therapists (IFOMPT). It will proceed subject to a sufficient number of applications.
2nd July ‘Focus on’ seminar: Pelvic floor assessment and treatment proposed by the IOPTWH executive committee and hosted by IOPTWH president Gill Brook.
3rd July Focused symposium: Motor control in paediatric bladder and bowel dysfunction submitted jointly by IOPTWH and the International Organisation of Physical Therapists in Paediatrics.
4th July ‘Focus on’ seminar: Bone health and fall prevention proposed by the IOPTWH executive committee and chaired by IOPTWH executive oficer Robyn Willcock
Networking session for women’s health and pelvic physiotherapists, hosted by IOPTWH & chaired by Gill Brook

In addition, IOPTWH is planning a social gathering one evening, plus a meeting for any of our delegates who are at the Congress.

We do hope to see you there!
