When we started the group, we seriously thought that there were about a dozen physiotherapists around the world who would be interested in participating, so the growth of the Network has been nothing short of remarkable.
The CPN now has 250 members in 28 countries spread over four continents. We have members in Australia, Brazil, Canada, China, Denmark, Dubai, England, Germany, Hong Kong, India, Ireland, Israel, Malaysia, Malta, Netherlands, New Zealand, Nigeria, Norway, Palestine, Portugal, Scotland, South Africa, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Turkey, USA and Wales.
Within the network there are academics, clinicians, researchers and teachers. Some are leading players in their country’s professional bodies, others are internationally-recognised researchers. There are occupational therapists, speech and language therapists and sociologists in the network as well as physiotherapists.
Over the course of the next week, we’ll be celebrating the Network’s birthday with some announcements that we hope will encourage others to become active members of the group. These will include moving to a new website, launching the Network’s new constitution in 11 languages, revealing our new logo, and new member’s services including access to full pdfs of all the latest critical thinking from CPN members.
