ISPRM Congress 2024, in conjunction with 7th Annual Meeting of the Rehabilitation Medicine Society of Australia and New Zealand
The 18th World Congress of the International Society of Physical and Rehabilitation Medicine (ISPRM) will be a major event in Sydney, running from the 1st – 6th June 2024. It will be held in conjunction with the 7th Annual Meeting of the Rehabilitation Medicine Society of Australia and New Zealand (RMSANZ).
The Congress will be a forum for the presentation of international research, discovery and innovation in rehabilitation medicine. Whilst the major subgroups of clinical endeavour in the field of rehabilitation medicine will be covered; the conference will have a focus on the three “T’s” (trauma, technology and timing).
- Trauma will include motor vehicle accidents, domestic violence and the results of war and natural disasters
- Technology will range from personal devices such as phones to robotics
- Timing will explore topics such as rehabilitation, in-reach services and when rehabilitation should end.
The Rehabilitation Medicine Society of Australia and New Zealand (RMSANZ) provides high calibre continuing professional development programs for doctors and allied health professionals working in the specialty of Rehabilitation Medicine in Australia and New Zealand.
In order to promote the advancement of knowledge in the field of rehabilitation medicine, since 2016 the RMSANZ has been holding an annual conference as one of its major events. The first Annual Scientific Meeting of the RMSANZ was held in 2016 in Melbourne. The Annual Scientific Meeting (ASM) is usually a national event held over three days for members of the Society, Fellows and Trainees of the Australasian Faculty of Rehabilitation Medicine (AFRM) and other interested parties including allied health professionals, but in some years combined meetings might be organised involving other related bodies, both national and international, such as AOSPRM and ISPRM.
