Physiopedia Awards Programme

Introduction[edit | edit source]

Physiopedia is the result of voluntary contributions from an amazing group of altruistic individuals and organisations that wish to contribute to pubic knowledge related to rehabilitation. The Physiopedia Awards Programme recognises and features the diligence and efforts of people who have made significant and impactful contributions. These awards also serve to showcase the impact these contributions are having on the global rehabilitation professions.

Anyone can nominate a candidate, and in turn, be nominated. Awards are decided by the awards committee and are given each month to our Top Contributor as well as annually in June in the following categories:

  1. Top Contributor - The individual who has contributed the most content to Physiopedia.
  2. Physiopedia Superstar - Outstanding contribution by an individual.
  3. Best Physiopedia Project - Most impactful project in partnership with Physiopedia.
  4. Social Media Impact Award - Individual who has made the most impact via social media.
  5. Physiospot Superstar - Individual with the most impactful Physiospot article.
  6. Physioplus Superstar - Individual who collects the most Physioplus points.
  7. Outstanding Leadership - Individual that has demonstrated great leadership.
  8. Innovation Award - Most forward thinking and creative contributions.
  9. Global Impact Award - The individual that has made the greatest impact to rehabilitation through their contribution to Physiopedia.
