Two Days National Conference on
“Implementing Evidence into Physiotherapy”
Disseminate, Integrate, Practice

December 20-21, 2018

CHAPCON-2018 is conceived as a first of its kind Physiotherapy conference in India with the theme of “Implementing evidence into Physiotherapy”. Evidence based practice involves the integration of the best available evidences with clinical expertise and patient values. Worldwide, Physiotherapy as a profession recognized the use of evidence based practice to provide high-quality care and decreasing unwarranted variation in practice.
Although evidence based practice (EBP) has been accepted as best practice standards, many concerns about EBP revolve around implementing current best available evidence into practice. The body of evidence on what works and what doesn’t is growing, yet there is a lack of consensus and understanding on how to adopt research into practice.
This Conference will be a platform for Physiotherapists of India and other participants to discuss the current situation, challenges and advancements relating to the implementation of evidence based practices in Physiotherapy. Physiotherapists will seek to share experience and best practices on their work to promote and deliver quality patient care. They will focus on how to change the current practices with a focus on its obstacles and opportunities.  Further, discussions will include practical suggestions on how to foster the implementation of evidence based Physiotherapy among the young and enthusiastic future Physiotherapist of India, to enable them in delivering a greater quality patient care. The main conclusions of the conference can be reflected and incorporated into the curriculum of Physiotherapy education.
