Each week the IFOMPT organising committee will keep you updated regarding IFOMPT 2016 in Glasgow. With over 180 delegates already registered from around the world travelling to Glasgow on the 4th to the 8th of July, IFOMPT 2016 promises to be the international conference to go to in 2016.
The conference committee working alongside conference organisers MCI and the City of Glasgow are determined to make a truly memorable conference not only to showcase the “Expanding Horizons” in musculoskeletal medicine but the City of Glasgow and Scotland.
Spotlight on pre and post conference courses
As part of IFOMPT 2016 the conference committee have arranged some exciting pre and post conference courses from world experts in their field of neuromusculoskeletal medicine. Each weekly IFOMPT 2016 newsletter will be focusing on one of these courses. This week we take a look at:
Course Title: Entrapment neuropathies from bench to bedside:
pathophysiology, assessment and physiotherapy management
Presenter:Dr Annina Schmid, Dr Brigitte Tampin and Dr Colette Ridehalgh
Duration: 2 Days
Dates: 2nd and 3rd July
Location: Glasgow Caledonian University
Times: 09:00 – 17:00 both days
Course Fees: £250.00 Early bird rate. Course fee will be increased to £295 after 4 April
Entrapment neuropathies are the most common peripheral nerve disorders. This 2 day course lead by Dr Annina Schmid, Dr Brigitte Tampin and Dr Colette Ridehalgh aims to provide a detailed insight into recent scientific advances in this subject. This course aims to enable the participants to understand the basic principles of pain physiology associated with entrapment neuropathies and to incorporate this knowledge into their reasoning framework; to be familiar with the practical performance and interpretation of bedside neurological testing and quantitative sensory testing methods in the context of entrapment neuropathies; to understand the available evidence for the efficacy and benefit of physiotherapeutic interventions in the management of patients with entrapment neuropathies; and to be competent in designing a targeted intervention for patients with entrapment neuropathies and to interpret changes associated with the delivered intervention
We would recommend that you book early onto all pre and post conference courses, as places are limited and are starting to fill fast.
