PHYSIO UK 2018 Conference

14th Feb 2018

This year the MACP celebrates its 50th anniversary. In partnership with the CSP we will be convening a dedicated musculoskeletal stream at Physio UK 2018, 19th - 20th October 2018.

In the run up to the conference we will be letting members know how they can contribute to the conference and provide information regarding key note speakers, developing conference programme. We will also be letting members know how they can become involved in delivering a high quality MSK stream.

How can MACP members become involved?

Conference Programme
The MACP conference team would be interested in hearing your thoughts on who you would like to speak at Physio UK 2018. We will be looking for suggestions on the MACP Twitter and Facebook pages under the working title for the MSK stream "Progress and Innovation in MSK"

Abstract Review Committee.
We previously let you know about the opportunity to apply to be a part of the abstract review committee.
There is still an opportunity to be part of the abstract review process as the application deadline does not close until the 23rd March 2018.

Why to volunteer as a reviewer:
- The results of the review process will help organisers make informed decisions about Physiotherapy UK content and the MSK stream
- Peer review helps to ensure credible work is selected for presentation and improves the quality of the conference.
- Good CPD opportunity
- Find out what others are doing in your field and contribute to the scientific community

Abstract Submission
The call for abstract submission opens on the 14th Feb and we would like to encourage all members to submit their abstracts for consideration for Physio UK 2018 to showcase the work of MACP members to the wider physiotherapy community.
Dr Nicola R Heneghan, Chair of the MACP, gives 10 top tips for first time abstract submissions.


1. Start discussing your ideas NOW for an abstract (abstract submissions start 14th February)
2. Check the requirements (word count, structure/subheadings, conference theme/strand theme)
3. Review previously submitted and accepted abstracts which have used similar designs/methods as you for ideas. The best abstracts will likely have been accepted as oral presentations
4. Find a critical friend and use them over and over again to refine your abstract; it takes time to develop a great abstract
5. Background: what is the problem/context to the project, why is this project needed
a. 2/3 sentences maximum stating the problem/context
b. Include data to support if possible
6. Purpose: what were the aims/objectives of the project
7. Design/Methods: provide key information on design, and methods, including sample, setting, inclusion/exclusion criteria, piloting, validity/reliability of tools used, data analysis etc. refer to guidelines for 'quality' where appropriate e.g. CONSORT, ethics
8. Results: provide demographic detail, including sample characteristics. Include main results/findings which are clear to the reader.
9. Conclusion: briefly, but clearly state what you found in your study
10. Implications: what are the practice/clinical/research implications of your findings

News

22nd May 2017

The Chartered Society of Physiotherapy have produce guidance for its members when working with patients usingTransdermal patches.

Transdermal patches using opioid medicines if exposed to increased temperatures are linked to serious side effects in patients. This could include use in hydrotherapy pools or extreme exercise which may raise body temperature. Side effects may be life threatening including death, which is caused by the increased absorption of the opioid medicine at these higher temperatures.
