Transform lives, maximise independence and empower populations
Physiotherapy services do transform lives through reversing the impact of illness and disability through supported self-management, rehabilitation and education. This year’s conference returns to Birmingham and is focussed on the key determinants to achieve our vision for UK physiotherapy across all sectors and settings.
Physiotherapy UK 2017 underpins the Society’s 2017-20 corporate plan:
- position physiotherapy at the leading edge of transforming health and social care
- champion the evidence that physiotherapy is both clinically- and cost-effective
- empower people to live long and live well, independently
The draft programme* is available to view online, so you can start planning which of our invited speakers’ sessions you’ll not want to miss. More than 100 platform and poster presentations will be added to this programme in July.
The themes for this year are:
- Evidence matters
- LEAD: Leadership Exploration, Advocacy & Development
- Our Digital Movement
- Your service, your improvement
The 2017 Founders’ Lecture will be delivered by Prof Sir Muir Gray CBE, Chief Knowledge Officer to the NHS.
The lecture was first instigated in 1914 to commemorate the founders of the modern physiotherapy profession in the UK.
Until 27 June, full CSP members get two days at the UK’s most important physiotherapy conference for just £262. There are also permanently discounted rates available for students, retired/unwaged and associate members.
