We have teamed up with the Posture & Mobility Group (PMG) for a fourth year running to offer our readers the chance to win a free place at the PMG Conference!
Taking place at The International Centre in Telford from 15-17 July, the PMG Conference 2019 is a multi-disciplinary event for professionals working in the field of posture and wheeled mobility (for wheelchair users), so is ideal for occupational therapists working in a range of areas.
This year’s conference programme includes sessions that focus on spinal injuries, transportation for wheelchair users, early powered mobility, pressure care, continuing professional development and 24-hour postural management for people with learning disabilities. We will also welcome Rachael Wallach, Founder and CEO of Disrupt Disability to open the conference, and Dr Rachel Tams, Consultant Clinical Neuropsychologist from Oxford University Hospital will speak about ‘Parents of adults with degenerative conditions: how their role changes over time’.
The conference begins with a speed networking event to get everyone talking! This year’s topics include bariatric wheelchair seating, pressure cushions and motor neurone disease – you can visit as many of these as you want, but only have 20 minutes at each before everyone moves on to the next. It’s a great way to share knowledge with a range of professionals working in similar areas.
Alongside the conference, the event includes a large industry exhibition, with companies demonstrating a range of relevant products such as manual and powered wheelchairs, special seating, buggies, pressure cushions, sleep systems, belts and harnesses, assistive technology, wheelchair controls and software solutions.
The free place on offer is worth nearly £500 and includes two nights’ onsite hotel accommodation, access to the conference and exhibition for two days with breakfast, lunch and refreshments provided, plus, a Gala Dinner ticket! There is also the option to attend the free speed networking sessions and Italian welcome event on the Monday.
All the winner needs to do in return is write an article for The OT Magazine after the conference, analysing the event as a whole, or a particular presentation – ideal for your CPD!
