This session will educate participants on new and innovative methods to translate physiotherapy knowledge into clinical practice in a universally accessible way. Through hands on experience it will give participants the skills to contribute physiotherapy knowledge in an open format. It will involve demonstrations and hands on practice of contributing knowledge to online resources. The session will involve: 1. introductory lecture on knowledge translation and new and innovative ways to translate knowledge into clinical practice, including via Physiopedia (15mins) 2. demonstration and hands on practice of editing Physiopedia (40mins) 3. demonstration and hands on practice of contributing knowledge to Physiopedia (40mins) 4. interactive discussion relating to how Physiopedia could evolve to facilitate knowledge translation (15mins) 5. questions and further discussion (10mins)

v. Summary Recent advances in technology have presented us with new methods for translating evidence into clinical practice. One important aspect of this is the ability for physiotherapists to share knowledge in an open and accessible way. If knowledge is shared in this way physiotherapists can get involved in quickly translating knowledge into action. The open physiotherapy specific wiki, Physiopedia, allows physiotherapists to perform this new role in collaboration with the international physiotherapy community. vi. Implications/Conclusions A trustworthy centre to access valid and up to date information for patients and clinicians is essential. The evolving role of physiotherapists to get involved in the knowledge translation process online will not only help to build this centre but also will reduce the time it takes to get evidence into practice. vii. Key words (up to 3) Knowledge Translation; Physiopedia; Open Access. viii. Funding acknowledgements Physiopedia is funded by donations from the physiotherapy community h) Abbreviated CV of the organiser
