International Confederation of Cardiorespiratory Physiotherapists (ICCrPT)


About the specialty group

The International Confederation of Cardiorespiratory Physiotherapists (ICCrPT) was approved as a specialty group at the 17th General Meeting of WCPT, in Amsterdam, June 2011.

    The ICCrPT is an international physiotherapy organisation representing a unified body for physiotherapists with a special interest in cardiorespiratory physiotherapy.

    The ICCrPT aims to promote excellence in the practice of cardiorespiratory physiotherapy internationally through adherence to standards and consistency of practice. It also aims to advance the scope of cardiorespiratory physiotherapy by facilitating and supporting evidence based practice, knowledge exchange, education of future physiotherapists, clinical specialisation, research and international collaboration.

    The ICCrPT provides a platform where physiotherapists with a common interest in cardiorespiratory health may meet, confer and promote these interests.


    Member organisations which are not currently active in the group but feel that there may be interest among their members should:

    • forward the information about the confederation to the appropriate interest group and encourage it to nominate a representative for communication with the steering group
    • direct inquiries to Brenda O'Neill

    Year subgroup recognised
