Rehabilitation research, practice and education the era of COVID-19’
Tuesday 10th & Wednesday 11th November 2020

This online conference, jointly hosted by the Society for Research in Rehabilitation, British Society of Rehabilitation Medicine, Association of Chartered Physiotherapists for People with Learning Disabilities, and supported by the European Forum for Research in Rehabilitation, will be an unmissable opportunity to share insights and best practice, discuss implications for the future of rehabilitation, and extend and strengthen our professional networks. 

Rehabilitation has been highlighted publicly and politically by the pandemic. Before COVID-19, rehabilitation services were already under strain. In 2020, new COVID-19 related rehabilitation needs have emerged - not only from those who survived COVID-19, but also among those whose health has been impacted by isolation and other COVID-19-related factors. Taken together, more people need high quality, evidence-based rehabilitation for their long term, complex needs than ever before.

These urgent and important demands on rehabilitation affect everyone working in this important field; new questions have arisen about how best to adapt services to ensure they are fit for purpose and adaptable in future. There are important questions about new education and training, required by practitioners to deliver these services, as well as an urgent need for new research to strengthen the evidence underpinning rehabilitation practice. 

The programme will address a broad range of rehabilitation topics, covering both COVID-19 and non-COVID-19 related topics. The conference is intended for anyone involved in rehabilitation (including clinical practice, education and research). We particularly welcome abstract submissions from trainees, early career researchers, clinicians and students.

Details of the conference, call for abstracts & submission system and registration are now open at

Deadline for abstract submission is 4 October, 12 midnight.

The Society holds one or two scientific meetings a year, generally in winter and summer. Each meeting offers symposia addressing specific rehabilitation topics, sessions for presentation of scientific papers and poster sessions. Details of the next meeting are shown below.
