It is my great pleasure to welcome you to the 1st “Shoulder Rehabilitation Conference” to be held at Liverpool Hope University in 2018. This 2-day conference, themed as “New Discoveries and Future Directions” with an outstanding line up of speakers will combine great scientific content and tremendous clinical expertise to share with us the most current advances in the field of shoulder/upper limb rehabilitation and to underpin fundamental challenges to address in the future. This event will also provide you with a fantastic opportunity to visit the diverse and vibrant city of Liverpool with its rich and world-class historical heritage.
The field of Shoulder Rehabilitation is fast changing as technological, scientific, and clinical advances collectively continue to produce an overwhelming range of new evidence. This strongly implies that successful shoulder rehabilitation nowadays requires close collaborative teamwork and implementation of interdisciplinary interventions. Hence, I hope that this conference will provide a valuable opportunity for sharing our knowledge around the most recent advances in the field and ways they can be best implemented to resolve even the most challenging issues.
A distinctive aspect of the conference programme is the interdisciplinary nature of academic sessions, expert-led discussion forums with exciting topics, and interactive practical workshops. We have a great team working to make this a memorable meeting, and I look forward to meeting you in Liverpool, in November 2017.
