The World Confederation for Physical Therapy (WCPT) Congress 2019 will be held in Geneva on 10-13 May 2019. As a WCPT Professional Partner, PEDro will be participating in the Congress exhibition and scientific program. This includes running a post-congress course on 14 May 2019.
January 2019 is your last chance to register for a half day post-congress course entitled Research in the clinical setting: understanding and applying randomised trials. In the course, participants will develop knowledge and skills in using randomised controlled trials to guide clinical practice. The value of randomised trials will be explored. We will delve into some key design features used in trials, including random allocation, concealed allocation, intention to treat analysis, reporting of between-group comparisons, and blinding of therapists, subjects and assessors. Participants will gain practical experience in reading and appraising published reports of trials, considering features such as their methodological quality and the precision of the trial’s estimates of the treatment effect. Participants will also practise explaining the trial’s results to patients in terms that they will understand in order to foster joint clinical decision-making.
The speakers are Anne Moseley, Jean-Philip Regnaux, Jan Mehrholz, Antonia Gómez Conesa, and Lucíola Menezes Costa. The workshop will actively engage conference delegates from around the globe by offering the discussion and practical content in five languages (English French, German, Spanish and Portuguese).
