In addition to the main Congress scientific programme, the satellite programme includes education sessions that will be delivered by world experts to explore issues in depth in an area of clinical practice, education, management, research or policy.  There is a mix of half, one and two-day sessions spread across the one day pre- and two days post-congress, along with a few sessions running alongside the scientific programme. Spaces for these sessions are strictly limited and only open to congress delegates, so register now to be guaranteed a place and avoid disappointment.

Topics covered include:

  • ankle injuries (in Dutch & English)
  • motor control
  • anorectal dysfunction

The education sessions are only open to those who are registered for at least one day of the Congress.  The cost of a one day satellite programme education session is the same as one day of Congress, €195.  All handout materials, lunch and refreshments are included.
