IFOMPT Conference 2016 4-8 July

Join us!

On behalf of the Musculoskeletal Association of Chartered Physiotherapists (MACP) and the International Federation of Orthopaedic Manipulative Physical Therapists (IFOMPT) we are delighted to invite you to join us for the IFOMPT 2016 Conference which takes place in Glasgow at the Scottish Exhibition and Conference Centre (SECC) from 4 - 8 July 2016.

The IFOMPT Conference is a prestigious international conference held every 4 years to celebrate innovation and research within neuromusculoskeletal physiotherapy. IFOMPT is an international body made up of 23 national groups specialising in post graduate musculoskeletal physiotherapy. The MACP is the UK member of IFOMPT and last hosted this conference back in 1988.

The theme for Glasgow 2016 will be Expanding Horizons.

This exciting conference invites delegates to explore 5 themed strands, covering key areas relevant to orthopaedic manipulative physical therapists across the world.

In recent years, manual therapists have pushed the traditional boundaries of the profession, and this conference will build on these advances, bringing together leaders and innovators in the clinical, academic and research fields. The 5 programme strands will be:

  • Advanced assessment/practice and managing
    complex patients
  • Integrating Research into practice
  • Health promotion/Public health
  • Changing roles and scope of practice
  • Teaching, Learning and Professional Development

The programme also includes pre and post conference workshops which will be held at Glasgow Caledonian University.

To receive further information on this conference, including dates of when registration, abstract submission and industry bookings will open, please register your interest here.

We look forward to welcoming you to Glasgow in 2016
