Focused symposia guidelines

Physiotherapy UK is inviting proposals for focused symposia sessions. The call is open to all aspects of physiotherapy including service delivery, clinical practice, research and education, which address any of the following conference themes:

Innovation in rehabilitation 

This theme explores innovative approaches in rehabilitation, including how advances in technology allow services and practice to be redesigned, delivering better patient outcomes and experience.

Managing complexity

In the UK population more people are presenting with more complex health problems and multimorbidities. As this trend accelerates, this theme explores how physiotherapists are responding to the challenges and how practice is evolving in response

Fit for work

This theme explores how the management of musculoskeletal, mental health  and long-term conditions are keeping the working population fit, active, healthy and at work. This theme is delivered in partnership with the Association of Chartered Physiotherapists in Occupational Health and Ergonomics (ACPOHE)

The next generation

This theme looks at the advances in physiotherapy for children and young people which are enabling participation and activity for all. Delivered in partnership with Association of Paediatric Chartered Physiotherapists (APCP)

The focused symposia will form part of the programme at the CSP’s national scientific conference: Physiotherapy UK 2019, at the ICC Birmingham. They provide a great opportunity to collaborate with colleagues and to share and explore perspectives on a topic.
