Who Can Attend?

Everyone!  Event attendance and IPMN membership is open to anyone working, training, or with an interest in the fields of mobility and/or postural management (Nurses, Doctors, Occupational Therapists, Physiotherapists, Prosthetists, Orthotists, Clinical & Rehabilitation Engineers and Technicians, Product Designers, Product Specialists).  This year, we would especially like to encourage interested members of the Nursing profession to join us.  The network also welcomes and promotes the attendance and active participation of users of posture and mobility products.

The success and continuation of the Day of Shared Learning is dependent on the presenters who share their knowledge, but equally so, on those who come to listen and to share their own knowledge in a less formal fashion.  There will be opportunities to network during the lunch and coffee breaks.

We encourage you to prioritise this as a key training event and valuable CPD opportunity for your annual calendar.  Note that it will be hosted on a Friday this year (rather than a Thursday), making attendance even more appealing to people travelling from outside Dublin.  We intend to webcast the education sessions to those who cannot attend.

Please inform others who might be interested in attending, or viewing the webcast.
