Become a history.physio contributing author

With the new history.physio website, we’re looking to have contributions from across the whole physiotherapy community.

Each month we’d like to publish a short piece from 8 to 10 IPHA members who would be our regular contributing authors.

We’d provide full editorial support and promotion, and in return give you the opportunity to profile your own research, or work going on in your region.

If you’d like to be one of our new contributing authors, contact Dave Nicholls at david.nicholls@aut.ac.nz and we’ll talk about how it will work.
