WCPT provides courses and materials that can be used for continuing professional development.
WCPT continuing education courses
WCPT recognises that continuing education courses are not easy to access in all parts of the world. A number of well-known course leaders have volunteered their time to offer WCPT member organisations and regions a range of courses covering subjects including:
- manipulative therapy
- community based rehabilitation
- laser therapy
- geriatric orthopaedics
- burns rehabilitation
The courses are on average two to three days and are be taught by presenters who are experts in their field. The presenters have volunteered their time for free. They are happy to travel, but their traveling and accommodation costs have to be covered through course fees or other means.
WCPT member organisations or regions interested in setting up such a course in their area should contact the WCPT Secretariat at firstname.lastname@example.org. They will be provided with further information regarding costs involved and resources needed. Please note that any profits from the course will be shared by the member organisation/region and WCPT
Individual physical therapists wishing to attend a course should contact their member organisation.
WCPT Congress learning materials
The 2011 WCPT Congress offered new opportunities for physical therapists to engage with experts on contemporary topics. You too can learn from these experts by accessing their presentations on this website free of charge.
Four discussion panels were recorded in full. There are also recordings of eight focused symposia, with accompanying PowerPoint presentations. The materials can be used in teaching and learning, for individuals and groups.
