Themes

We welcome over 200 presenters to Physiotherapy UK to showcase their peer-reviewed research via platform and poster presentations.

Themes

The Musculoskeletal theme addresses the progression of evidence-based practice in MSK treatment and service delivery. It showcases developments in research and practice , service improvement and opportunities for future development. 

This theme is delivered in partnership with the Musculoskeletal Association of Chartered Physiotherapists (MACP) as part of their 50th anniversary celebrations. 

Primary Care & Workforce Transformation addresses the current national priorities related to supporting clinical academic careers, developing research and supporting evolution in the workforce. With workforce numbers consistently identified as an area of priority to  meet the needs of the UK health system, this theme will cover developments in education delivery and practice based learning, workforce planning and the role of research. 

Our Rehab Matters theme draws on the CSP’s Rehab Matters campaign, a priority focus area for 2018, reflecting the critical role that rehabilitation plays in reducing dependence, increasing resilience and expediting care. This is vital for the sustainability of universal healthcare in the UK, to provide optimal quality of life to populations and support people to remain in or return to work.

This theme is delivered in partnership with AGILE and ACPIN, representing a focus on frailty and long term conditions. 

The full programme, including around 250 successful abstract submissions, will be available in July but you can now explore the outline programme.
