International Organisation of Physical Therapists in Paediatrics (IOPTP)

Members of the Paediatrics supgroup

About the subgroup

The purpose of the International Organisation of Physical Therapists in Paediatrics is to provide a means by which World Physiotherapy member organisations with a common interest in children and their families may meet, confer, and promote these interests.

The objectives of this organisation are:

  • to foster cooperation between physiotherapists practicing in paediatrics throughout the world
  • to encourage improved standards and consistency of practice in paediatrics care by physiotherapists
  • to advance practice by communication and exchange of information
  • to encourage scientific research and promote opportunities for the spread of knowledge of new developments in the field of paediatrics
  • to assist World Physiotherapy member organisations in the development of recognised sub-sections in paediatrics

We welcome your ideas and questions about what this group can accomplish for physiotherapists and children around the world.
