Call for Papers/Presentations for the Ortho Symposium 2021

The 2021 Orthopaedic Symposium is a national conference dedicated to the practice of orthopaedic physiotherapy in Canada and is being held in Winnipeg from April 30 to May 2. It is a joint partnership between the Orthopaedic Division of the Canadian Physiotherapy Association and the Canadian Academy of Manipulative Physiotherapy.


The theme for the Symposium is collaboration. Our tag line, “Aim to meet in the middle/Ensemble, visons le centre,” plays with our geographical location in the centre of the country, but also speaks to our goal of having physiotherapists with different clinical backgrounds coming together and sharing knowledge for the benefit of our patients across Canada. Our local organizing committee is working very hard to make this a successful event that shows off the best this province has to offer.


We have recently put out the Call for Papers/Presentations. We are looking for both original, peer-reviewed research as well as knowledge translation presentations that synthesize research and its clinical application to daily practice. Presentations can be in poster or podium format. The submission portal opens August 17th and closes September 28, 2020.


Additionally, we are looking for volunteers to join the Abstract Review Committee and  review the proposals submitted. Volunteers should be physiotherapists with an additional post-entry to practice degree in physiotherapy or a related field (Research Master’s Degree, Clinical Master’s in Manual Therapy, PhD, etc.).

Full details can be found in the attached documents, as well as on the website, www.orthosymposium.ca
