The Saudi Physical Therapy Association (SPTA) is dedicated to support its members to promote scientifically based and clinically relevant research that aims to improving the quality and delivery of patient care.
The research in physical therapy profession is needed specially in our society where we need numerous data are still unknown in our population. We need as physical therapists to establish collaborative research within our subspecialties and encourage inter-organisational work groups. The picture of the profession has positively changed and gained access to consultation, training, education, commercialisation and other individual markers of rehabilitation intervention and outcome. The SPTA supports the studies looking at the effect of different rehabilitation techniques and interventions, and studies of the underlying mechanisms that support plasticity and repair.
The SPTA supports research projects in all physical therapy areas. This center will be formed of a chair and members who will evaluate all submitted prposals and determine a winning proposal to be supported.
