InPractice 2001 will feature case
presentations, discussion and debate on two common and often
controversial issues facing practitioners - the management and
rehabilitation of acute knee injuries and the effects of high
performance training on young athletes. 

Clinical host, Dr. Paul Wright, will
facilitate interaction between invited case consultants and conference
delegates, which will include physicians, therapists, chiropractors,
surgeons, exercise scientists and strength and conditioning consultants.
An integrated, multi-disciplinary problem solving approach will be
emphasized throughout.

Course Objectives

Sport medicine is ideally suited to a team
approach. InPractice will bring together professionals from
different disciplines and provide a forum to identify new approaches to,
and perspectives on, problems in exercise science and sport medicine. 

  • By the end of this one-day
    event the
    participants will be able to manage issues as they relate to the two
    themes of discussion;

  • Have an
    improved understanding of the respective roles of other
    colleagues/practitioners and how to better work in a
    multi-disciplinary environment.
