TED-Type Talk - "Innovation in Physiotherapy"

The Program Planning Committee is launching the call for speakers at the TED type-talk session at Congress Montreal18. Speakers are invited to share, in 7 minutes, stories of innovation in physiotherapy. If you are interested in applying for this opportunity to perform a TED-type talk, please create a 2-minute YouTube video audition explaining why you should be chosen and what and how you have been innovative in your career and practice. Submission deadline is September 15, 2018.

The Pitch - "Innovation in Physiotherapy"

Do you have great ideas? Have you started a pilot project and need a little help reaching the next level? Have you thought of presenting your pitch in front of your peers? Judges are looking for proposals focused on ‘Innovation in Physiotherapy’. Considering the cutbacks to health care across the country, it is vital that we, as a profession, create new and innovative ways to deliver physiotherapy services. Proposals can target any patient population in any health setting provided it addresses innovation in physiotherapy. The prizes will be revealed in September 2018. Submission deadline is September 15, 2018.
