PEDro supported a new prize at the Australian Physiotherapy Association (APA) Momentum Conference in Sydney in October 2017. The prize was for the best clinical trial presented at the congress. 75 abstracts presenting the primary results of high-quality and groundbreaking clinical trials were considered for the prize. Five judges, all experienced clinical trialists, attended shortlisted presentations to choose the best trial.
The prize was awarded to Professor Kim Bennell from the University of Melbourne for her paper entitled “Internet-delivered physiotherapist-prescribed exercise and pain coping skills training for people with chronic knee pain (IMPACT-knee pain): randomized controlled trial”. Congratulations Kim.
The trial was published earlier this year – read more on PEDro.
