Key speakers for WCPT Congress 2021 announced

WCPT is pleased to announce the opinion leaders and innovators in physical therapy who will present the key sessions at the world’s largest gathering of the profession – the WCPT Congress, to be held in Dubai, 8 – 10 April 2021.

The congress programme includes 12 confirmed focused symposia featuring 55 speakers from around the world.  Focused symposia are core sessions where cutting edge relevant topics will be explored from an international and diverse perspective. High profile speakers will create insightful and engaging learning experiences that ultimately inform, inspire, involve and empower delegates. Details of the newly announced symposia, including speakers, are provided in the attached sheets.

« We were incredibly pleased with the breadth and quality of the many proposals we received. The focused symposia to be presented in Dubai combine truly global perspectives with content that we believe represents professional challenges that physiotherapists around the world are facing today. The topics cover a range of timely topics, such as pain management, services for refugees and migrants, health economics, and the role of technology, and are relevant to clinicians, managers, educators and researchers, » said Shane Patman, Chair of WCPT’s congress programme committee (CPC), which has responsibility for putting together the programme for the WCPT Congress 2021.

« Focused symposia are a great opportunity to hear from world-renowned speakers that are experts in their area and gain a unique global understanding and insight into a particular field.

« The CPC is excited to announce the first confirmed programming for the WCPT Congress 2021 and is looking forward to developing it further with relevant and innovative content. »

Each focused symposium is organised by a recognised expert in the field, who leads an international group of speakers working together and engaging with the audience to draw out the relevance, challenges, applicability and take-home messages.
