We are pleased to present the inaugural First Singapore Rehabilitation Conference on 10 & 11 February 2012. Hosted by the Singapore General Hospital with the Tan Tock Seng Hospital, the theme for this conference is the â€œState-of-the-Art Advances in Clinical Rehabilitationâ€. With advances in modern health care and the exponential increase in the numbers of aged and disabled in the population, the demand for rehabilitation is rapidly rising both locally and internationally, and forms an integral part of the treatment spectrum of any disease. The Quality of Rehabilitation is also paramount as we focus on the rapid advances and state-of-the art developments in rehabilitation that will ensure optimal functional outcomes for our patients.
Designed to be wide-ranging and comprehensive, the conference will cover the traditional broad fields of Rehabilitation including Neurological and Musculoskeletal Rehabilitation. There is also a strong focus on the rapid new developments in Geriatric Rehabilitation, Interdisciplinary Pain Management and Rehabilitation Nursing. We also present a special segment in Rehabilitation Systems and Integration as well as Rehabilitation in the Community which have a significant impact on national policies and societal burden of care.
The Conference is designed to be interdisciplinary, emphasizing the team-approach to rehabilitation with both reputable local and international speakers drawing on their professional roles as Physical, Occupational and Speech Therapists, Medical Social Workers, Nurses, Rehabilitation Physicians, Specialist Physicians and Health Administrators. There is also important cross-representation of many institutions that provide various levels of rehabilitation services including Acute Hospitals, Community/Rehabilitation Hospitals, Nursing Homes, and Outpatient Rehabilitation Facilities. This conference will bring together many Engineering and Technology experts that are firmly integrated in modern rehabilitation practice as well.
The organizing committee has put together a stimulating scientific program with a comprehensive range of topics. The conference will present a combination of plenary lectures, symposiums, research presentations, as well as pre and post conference workshops. Outside the excellent program, Singapore is a first-world vibrant and multi-cultural cosmopolitan city. Its compact size makes it convenient and enthralling to explore the myriad of fantastic food, world-class attractions and Integrated Resorts that the country has to offer.
We hope that this conference will pave the way for the future interdisciplinary rehabilitation health care team to share their knowledge and skills, as we help patients optimize their function in a comprehensive and holistic rehabilitation environment.
We look forward to seeing you at the 1st Singapore Rehabilitation Conference.
