Join us at the 2017 INPTRA Conference in Cape Town, South Africa!

Where: INPTRA will be hosting an educational meeting on physiotherapy regulation at the African Pride 15 on Orange Hotel.

When: June 30-July 1, 2017 prior to the World Confederation for Physical Therapy’s (WCPT) Congress 2017 held July 2-4, 2017.

Both days will include educational sessions and small group discussions on issues of healthcare regulation and more- specifically physiotherapy regulation.

Sessions will be geared toward a range of regulatory experiences – from developing a regulatory system to those systems which are fully implemented.

Governance issues in regulation, educational and regulation, professionalism, policy and practice, and Data Driven Regulation will be the main themes. There will be topics of interest for the entire regulatory community.
