World Confederation for Physical Therapy

Knowledge translation is one of the key areas the WCPT places focus on. Each congress aims to reach as many participants as possible, to bring together learnings from across the world. The WCPT Congress 2017 was held in Africa for the first time creating greater opportunities to bridge gaps of knowledge between low and high income countries and support wider engagement, specifically for those in low income countries,. By holding the congress in this part of the world it enabled more delegates from Africa to attend, making up 26.5% of the audience compared to just 3.6% when held in Singapore in 2015. Even more, the event saw an impressive 71% increase in abstracts submitted from Africa.

The International Society on Thrombosis and Haemostasis

Placing a global spotlight on the often overlooked and misunderstood condition of thrombosis, the society’s World Thrombosis Day campaign saw over 8,200 awareness events organised across the globe in 2016. The team demonstrated an impressive approach to going beyond tourism, looking at how they could create multiple touch points with the industry, outside the four walls of the event itself. Judges of the Incredible Impacts Programme were impressed with the society’s creative approach to thinking and the ways in which they created a legacy to bring awareness to the conditions. One standout example was their annual Twitter Chat digital event. Running on World Thrombosis Day (October 13), the society created a platform for people around the world to talk about the condition, share expert advice and insights through a dedicated hashtag which generated an impressive 45 million impressions worldwide.
