Day of Shared Learning 2023

Two and a half years ago, IPMN Day of Shared Learning 2020 was cancelled on the morning of the event, due to COVID. We thank you for your understanding at the time, and apologise for any disappointment or inconvenience which that cancellation might have caused. Little did we know how things would spiral from there, or how long it would be until we could reconvene in person. But the time is finally here!

IPMN DOSL 2023 will be held at Trinity College Dublin on Friday March 10th 2023

Speakers from a variety of fields will talk on a wide range of topics related to innovation, research and best practice in seating, posture and mobility.

We encourage you to attend this key training event and valuable CPD opportunity.

Event attendance and IPMN membership is open to anyone working, training, or with an interest, in the fields of mobility and/or postural management (Doctors, Nurses, Occupational Therapists, Physiotherapists, Prosthetists, Orthotists, Clinical & Rehabilitation Engineers and Technicians, Product Designers, Product Specialists).  IPMN also welcomes and promotes the attendance and active participation of users of posture and mobility products.

There will be opportunities to network during the coffee breaks and lunch. The venue is wheelchair accessible. And the price is extremely reasonable, as always!! The photo above shows the venue auditorium. To explore the space, click here: 3D viewer

We hope to see you there.  Book now!!
