Conference

INTRODUCTION TO THE INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE

Every Nigerian (in need) deserves a chance to receive standard quality care by a Medical Rehabilitation Professional at an affordable/subsidised rate, especially considering the current state of our nation’s economy. For example, the parent of a cerebral palsy child needs some respite on his/her constant incessant bills for his/her child`s physiotherapy services.
 
The patient in need of an artificial limb needs a reasonable discount on his prosthesis; the patient with a hearing disability also needs access to the services of an audiologist at the local primary health centre in his/her neighbourhood. These patients also need to be integrated into the workplace and society at large, to create a more efficient workforce and physically-challenged-friendly working environment, thus integrating medical rehabilitation in universal health coverage for a better health care delivery in Nigeria.
 
Hence, the Medical Rehabilitation Therapists Board of Nigeria proudly presents International Conference of Medical Rehabilitation Professionals (ICMRP), Abuja, 2019.
 
The MRTB in this major event invites all Medical Rehabilitation Professionals (Physiotherapy, Speech Therapy, Occupational Therapy, Audiology, Prosthetics & Orthotics, Chiropractic and Osteopathic Medicine), Medical Doctors, Nurses, Radiographers, general public- NGOs, Development partners, Clients/Patients, Investors, philanthropies, Private practitioner, Federal Medical Centres from all around the globe to this year`s International Conference of Medical Rehabilitation professionals Abuja, 2019.
