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, and Timing will explore topics such as Prehabilitation, In-Reach services and when Rehabilitation should end.
The scientific program will include pre-congress practical workshops, plenary sessions and themed sessions with invited speakers and selected free paper presentations. Currently, it is planned for the Congress to be face-to-face with videoconferencing from some of the invited speakers.
