Focused symposia 2020

In the centenary year of the CSP we will be celebrating the best of physiotherapy by showcasing the latest evidence and innovations.

The focused symposia session for Physiotherapy UK 2020 will address any of the five conference themes: 

Managing Complex Pain

This theme explores contemporary physiotherapy practice, across all specialisms,​ that draws on psychologically informed and social approaches to support people, throughout their lifespan, living with complex pain conditions.  

Delivered in partnership with the Physiotherapy Pain Association (PPA).

Exercise and Decision Making

As a core pillar of physiotherapy practice, exercise is the golden thread that underpins many physiotherapists' interactions with patients and the population.

This theme will build on the learning of physiotherapists involved in sport and exercise at all levels from recreational athletes and general population through to professional and elite athletes. The decision-making and clinical reasoning processes relating to optimal loading and periodisation will have echoes throughout the profession to enable an enhanced understanding of several core principles. Delivered in partnership with The Association of Chartered Physiotherapists in sports and exercise medicine (ACPSEM)

Leading for Change 

Preparing the workforce to be fit for the future.

With changing models of care and a rapid growth in technology and innovation, advances in practice and service delivery are required. This theme explores how the workforce needs to develop to be fit for the future from support workers to advanced practitioners.

Managing Multi System Trauma

This themes explores the integrated approach to the rehabilitation of patients who have suffered major system trauma, complications, both physical and psychological and require multi systems support, across the whole pathway.

Delivered in partnership with Association of Trauma and Orthopaedic Chartered Physiotherapists (ATOCP) and Association of Chartered Physiotherapists in Respiratory Care (ACPRC)

Ageing Well

In the context of an ageing population where more care is delivered closer to home and a current focus on prevention and community rehabilitation, this theme explores how physiotherapy is at the forefront of new models of care, service delivery and workforce development in response to increasing demand.

Delivered in partnership with Chartered Physiotherapists working with Older People (AGILE).
