Yearly CPD training is also a significant part of the event. Through the conference, expert speakers will describe the best ways to diagnose issues, prescribe solutions and market your practice in a way that highlights your refined mobility skillset. The main outcome of the conference is giving industry professionals and therapists access to a network of experts who are passionate about safety standards and are available to assist and advise nationwide.
