IFOMPT 2016 Glasgow

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,  the UK member of IFOMPT, is this year hosting the event in Glasgow, Scotland.  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
