6. PEDro at WCPT Congress 2015

The World Confederation for Physical Therapy (WCPT) is convening the WCPT Congress 2015 in Singapore on 1-4 May 2015. As a WCPT partner, PEDro will be participating in the Congress exhibition and scientific program. A new YouTube video (how to ask a clinical question in PICO format) and the Turkish version of the PEDro web-site will be launched at the Congress. We also welcome the opportunity to seek endorsements and feedback from the global physical therapy community during the Congress.

If you are attending WCPT Congress 2015, please come and visit the PEDro team in booth D16 in the exhibition hall.

We have created a new page in the PEDro web-site to support these activities at WCPT Congress 2015.
