Minister for Gender Equality Attends Physiotherapist Days
October sees the return of the Physiotherapist Days to the Swedish Exhibition & Congress Centre. The Minister for Gender Equality Maria Arnholm is one of the inaugural speakers.
The opening session will also focus on the 200th anniversary of the physiotherapy profession and the government’s proposal to change the occupational title at the year-end.
“The Physiotherapy Days are packed with an impressively broad science-based programme. Topics for discussion include physiotherapist training in the future, sports medicine, the latest exercise programme for older people, and ways to prevent back and shoulder pain,” said Birgit Rösblad at the Swedish Association of Registered Physiotherapists (LSR).
The Physiotherapist Days have been held biennially since the early 1990s, when they were organised by the secretariat of LSR.
The Physiotherapist Days take place from 2-4 October. For further information, visit: www.sjukgymnastdagarna.se
