World Physiotherapy is pleased to announce the first key sessions at the world’s largest gathering of the profession – World Physiotherapy Congress 2023, to be held in Dubai, 2-4 June 2023.
The congress programme includes 17 focused symposia featuring over 60 presenters from 31 countries/territories, including 10 countries/territories that have not been represented at a focused symposium for at least the past three congresses.
Focused symposia are core sessions where cutting edge relevant topics will be explored from an international and diverse perspective. Presenters will create insightful and engaging learning experiences that ultimately inform, inspire, involve, and empower participants. Read the press release with details of the newly announced symposia and the presenters.
Jackie Whittaker, chair of World Physiotherapy’s congress programme committee (CPC), said: “We were incredibly pleased with the breadth and quality of the many proposals we received. The focused symposia to be presented in Dubai combine truly global perspectives with content that we believe represents professional challenges that physiotherapists around the world are facing today. The topics cover a range of timely issues, such as pain management, services for refugees and migrants, health economics, and the role of technology, and are relevant to clinicians, managers, educators and researchers.
“Focused symposia are a great opportunity to hear from experts in their area and gain a unique global understanding and insight into a particular field. The CPC is excited to announce the first confirmed programming for the World Physiotherapy Congress 2023 and is looking forward to developing it further with relevant and innovative content.”
Each focused symposium is organised by an expert in the field, who leads an international group of presenters working together and engaging with the audience to draw out the relevance, challenges, applicability and take-home messages.
