IAMMM Conference 8 September 2018 (second day) morning session by Prof. Berit Schiottz and Jens Foell
Aims: to fix the position of manual/musculoskeletal medicine in contemporary healthcare provision

Objectives: to explore members’ professional work profiles and generate a working definition of the essence of manual/musculoskeletal medicine

Contemporary healthcare services change at rapid pace. Digitalisation relies on standardisation and classification. Manual medicine is delivered as part of multi-disciplinary team approaches or in individual relationships. The position of manual/musculoskeletal medicine in these relationships is the focus of this educational morning. Debate and guided discussion feature in the education session. An online-survey will generate information about our members’ work profiles. The survey explores where subtle manual/musculoskeletal techniques and their associated explanatory models feature in their work-lives. “The house believes that the future of manual/musculoskeletal medicine depends on its academic representation in research and education” is the theme of a debate. By the end of the morning the community of musculoskeletal practice will have a better understanding of the threats and opportunities for manual/musculoskeletal techniques and ways of thinking in the medicine of the 21st Century”
