The conference will specifically focus on the various issues pertaining to the management of individuals with tetraplegia. As in previous years we are inviting MASCIP members to present at the conference. The format of the conference will again comprise keynote speakers covering a range of topics on the conference theme, with each being followed by selected MASCIP members’ presentations. We will be seeking abstracts from MASCIP members for oral submissions based on aspects of the conference theme. Presentations will be of 15 minutes’ duration, including time for questions.


Abstracts (maximum 300 words) should be completed using the abstract template and sent to Dot Tussler on dottussler@gmail.com. The deadline for abstract submissions is 30th September 2019.
