PTDOS is excited to announce it’s formal collaboration with Physiopedia this year! If you aren’t able to get out into your community on October 13th this year, you can contribute to the betterment of our society by contributing content to Physiopedia.
Physiopedia (www.physio-pedia.com) is a UK registered charity, whose mission is to contribute to “improving global health through universal access to Physiotherapy knowledge”. To do this Physiopedia provides a wiki platform similar to Wikipedia that is used by physiotherapists and physical therapists to collaboratively author and share knowledge.
Since launch in January 2009 Physiopedia has created over 2600 evidence-based articles through collaboration with individuals, educational institutions, research groups, professional organisations and clinics. With more than 2,000,000 visits from nearly every country each month, Physiopedia is now the most popular physiotherapy or physical therapy related website in the world. The huge use of this openly available knowledge allows physiotherapists and physical therapists all over the world to learn and professionally develop, ultimately improving the health of the communities that they work with.
Physiopedia relies on the professional community to develop and maintain the Physiopedia content. Any physiotherapist or physical therapist can request an editing account and make a contribution to the content. If you are a physiotherapist or physical therapist anywhere in the world, if you see something on the Physiopedia website that needs correcting or updating, from a simple spelling mistake to an outdated technique, you are invited to update it.
Contributing to the Physiopedia website is an easy and great way to give back, your contribution will help to provide an online resource that our will educate and advocate for the global physiotherapy and physical therapy profession for many years to come.
Thank you Physiopedia for the work you do to spread movement health across the world. We are excited to collaborate with you for years to come!
