Call for Abstracts

Dear professional network chairs,

You may be aware that the call for abstracts for Physiotherapy UK 2018 has been undertaken. The call lasts until 20th April 2018.

In order to increase the value of Physiotherapy UK for professional networks and their members, we are now providing the opportunity for abstract submitters to identify themselves with a network. Where attendees do this it will allow us to provide information to networks to help promote the abstract activity of their members and potentially lead guided poster walks at the conference.

In addition, where there are clusters of abstracts that are identified with a potential network and peer reviewed to become a platform or rapid 5 session, we will be offering networks the opportunity to own, chair and brand that session. So, the more abstracts submitted and identified with a network, the greater the visibility and presence of the network and its members.

We look forward to seeing hearing about the research and improvement achievements your networks’ members.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me directly (
