San Francisco, US
The McKenzie Institute International, in cooperation with North American Spine Society, is pleased to announce the 14th International Conference in Mechanical Diagnosis and Therapy, which will be held in San Francisco, California on 22-24 September, 2017 at the Hyatt Regency San Francisco, located on the Embarcadero across from the famous Ferry Plaza building. The conference will feature podium presentations and panel discussions, involving some of the world’s leading experts in the field of musculoskeletal diagnosis and management.
Patients Come First - Exploring Optimal Care
The choice of the Conference title and theme “Patients come first – exploring optimal care” was chosen because it reflects one of Robin McKenzie’s strongest beliefs - the patient’s concerns should take priority in management decisions. The current management of musculoskeletal conditions is often driven by policy, biased opinions of clinicians and financial interests. The optimal management for the individual patient is often forgotten.
This conference seeks to encourage clinicians to focus on the individual needs of the patient and how this can best be achieved. The variety of speakers and the diversity of their approaches will ensure that the participants are exposed to broad perspectives regarding patient care. The program will appeal to all clinicians involved in musculoskeletal management, stimulating discussion and debate regarding current clinical practices.
