Member organisations' publicity materials: documents for sharing

This page provides examples of physical therapy public relations material that WCPT member organisations can be inspired by, and in some cases copy.

This resource is being made available because WCPT member organisations in some countries do not have the resources available to put together the high quality public relations and publicity materials to raise the profile of their profession and its valuable work.

Some member organisations from higher income countries have kindly agreed to make their materials available here – either as examples of good practice, which member organisations can use as a basis for producing their own material, or as material that can be directly reproduced and copied (within the terms specified by the member organisation).

Please make sure you read the terms associated with each of the materials before using it in any way.
