Its mission is to help improve global heath by providing universal access to physical therapy knowledge. Physiopedia offers a place where physical therapists throughout the world can contribute, share, and gain knowledge.
With an evidence-based approach to physical therapy services, it offers opportunities for physical therapists to develop as professionals. As a collaborative and international site, Physiopedia unites physical therapists globally to develop and promote the profession.
WCPT is pleased to partner with PEDro – the Physiotherapy Evidence Database.
PEDro is a free database of over 24,000 randomised trials, systematic reviews and clinical practice guidelines in physical therapy. It provides citation details, an abstract and a link for each trial, review or guideline. All trials on PEDro are independently assessed for quality. These quality ratings are used to quickly guide users to trials that are more likely to be valid and to contain sufficient information to guide clinical practice.
As an international initiative furthering high quality practice, PEDro shares many of the same objectives and values as WCPT. WCPT believes that PEDro is an essential resource that informs evidence-based physical therapy practice worldwide and helps provide better services for those needing physical therapy.
WCPT is happy to raise awareness of PEDro, promote its value and encourage physical therapists around the world to consult and support it.
