Annual Conference

Conference Programme

With the theme of 'Expanding Hand Therapy Practice', the 2018 conference aims to expand the knowledge of delegates in areas of therapy and healthcare that have changed recently. The knowledge gained from conference will allow delegates to return to their workplaces with ideas regarding more efficient or alternative ways to deliver therapy to their patients. It will also encourage delegates to think about the expanding role of hand therapy and how they can maintain their skills in many areas. 

We're pleased to announce Ian Gatt as our keynote speaker. Ian is a senior practitioner with the English Institute of Sport and Lead Physiotherapist for GB Boxing, having provided services throughout the London and Rio Olympic cycles, and current Tokyo 2020 cycle.

Ian is a visiting lecturer at UCL and has been an associate lecturer at SHU where he is also currently undergoing a PhD in Wrist Biomechanics. He is an injury advisor to Olympic, Paralympic and Professional sports; delivering educational workshops and supporting practitioners with their respective athletes specifically on hand, wrist and elbow musculoskeletal injuries. 

Following on from previous years, the programme will feature a mix of plenary lectures, symposia and breakout sessions
