A warm welcome awaits you in the city of Glasgow for the MSK conference to go to in 2016. 200 delegates have already registered to attend, and with early bird prices ending on the 4th of April, we expect that number to grow.
Remember as the official UK member of IFOMPT, all members of the MACP are eligible for member registration rates for IFOMPT 2016. Full conference packages and conference day rates are available to provide options for delegates to attend.
Have you been successful in your abstract submission?
Notification letters were issues by the scientific committee on Monday 8 February 2016. Authors were encouraged to submit an abstract under the five key areas that constitute the conference theme, Expanding Horizons. These were:
- 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
As we would expect from an IFOMPT conference, the standard this year was very high and it was a difficult decision for the scientific committee to choose the successful applicants.
We would love to hear if you have been successful in your abstract submission by using the hashtag #IFOMPT2016 in your tweets or by following us on Twitter or Facebook.

This evidence-based theoretical and practical course is based on extensive clinical experience in assessment, diagnosis and rehabilitation of shoulder pathology, as well as extensive reference to research publications from a variety of disciplines. Innovative models of shoulder assessment including the Shoulder Symptom Modification Procedure (Lewis 2009 British Journal of Sports Medicine ) and methods for staging the assessment and treatment of rotator cuff tendinopathy will be presented and practiced. Emphasis will be placed on clinical reasoning to support management decisions.
Participants completing this course will gain a greater understanding of the anatomy, biomechanics, assessment and evidence-based treatment of this interesting and complicated region of the body. This course remains a work in progress and is continually being updated with the emergence of new research and clinical understanding. As a result, many people have participated on two and some on three occasions. This course will be fun, thought provoking, and provide opportunity to discuss ideas and share experiences.
Remember places on all the pre and post conference courses are limited so please book early to avoid disappointment.
