It is my great honor and pleasure to extend our warm invitation to you on behalf of the Organizing Committee of the 15th World Congress of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation 2021, organized by the International Society of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation (ISPRM) and the Portuguese Society of PRM (SPMFR), on May 16-20, 2021 in Lisbon, Portugal.
Founded in November 1999, ISPRM is the global agency for Physical and Rehabilitation Medicine (PRM), a non-governmental organization, in relation with the World Health Organization (WHO) and the United Nations (UN) and the international umbrella organization of PRM physicians.
ISPRM is the highest academic organization of PRM around the world and the ISPRM congress plays a major role in enhancing medical technology, strengthening academic exchanges and promoting collaborative research and exploration in rehabilitation medicine and related disciplines.
ISPRM 2021 is the major world PRM event happening this year.
To host an ISPRM congress has become a dream and we are aware of the large task and huge responsibility of the Congress Committees. Simultaneously, remembering the European Congress of PRM held in Estoril, Portugal, 2016, we feel confident that we will organize an outstanding and unforgettable academic, scientific, networking and social event.
We are working hard to organize an outstanding scientific and educational congress, respecting the ISPRM standards and the congress rules, to facilitate the spread and exchange of knowledge, skills and attitudes between experts, researchers, clinicians and trainees, and aiming to continue developing the ISPRM and PRM.
In close collaboration with the ISPRM and the SPMFR, the National Societies, the Regional Societies and Associations, namely the European PRM bodies, ISPRM 2021 will be an enormous accomplishment, but the success of a congress also depends on your participation. Send e us your abstracts for oral and poster presentations.
Prominent groups, civil associations and NGOs working on behalf of people with disabilities, will participate in this congress to help analyze models of care, and help to develop a more universal approach to the comprehensive rehabilitation needs of persons with disabilities.
