IPTOP resources and information

This is a new page for IPTOP members.  We would like to hear from you about topics you would like resources for, or if you have information to add to the existing page that would benefit our membership.

In time, newsletters from the different member organisations will be linked with this page, so watch this space .....

Please contact the web manager with your thoughts and ideas.

Archived material can be found in IPTOP Newsletters as follows:

  • Newsletter 20: Information related to Physical Activity and older people [link to follow six months after current newsletter has been distributed to IPTOP members]

IPTOP Standards of Clinical Practice

IPTOP have published Standards of Clinical Practice for use by physical therapist clinicians practising with older people.  They are a supplement to current standards published by the physical therapy professional body in the practitioner's country and to the WCPT 2011 Guideline for standards of physical therapy practice.

They are intended to provide guidance for physical therapists practising with older people in countries where specialist clinical networks in this field are developing, or do not yet exist.

The Standards document is free to any current members of IPTOP.  If you wish to access a copy of the standards, please contact the Secretary of IPTOP at [email protected], or your country representative to IPTOP (see the list of national representatives).  Non-members please also contact the Secretary for information about obtaining a copy of the standards, as they are free if a country becomes an IPTOP member, or if a person becomes an associate member.

IPTOP is trying to engage our members using various means of communication.  If you are on Facebook, you may like to Like the member organisation pages, and if you are on Twitter, then why not Follow their tweets?
