2nd International Conference on Physical Therapy in Oncology (ICPTO)
2nd International Conference on Physical Therapy in Oncology (ICPTO) is organized by Dutch Institute of Allied Health Care (NPi), The Association of Danish Physiotherapists (DFys), Danish Society for Oncological and Palliative Physical Therapy Dansk Selskab for Onkologisk og Palliativ Fysioterapi (DOPF) and will be held from May 14 - 15, 2020 at Radisson Blu Scandinavia Hotel Copenhagen, Copenhagen, Copenhagen (Hovedstaden), Denmark.
The overall theme for the meeting is ‘When Research meets Clinical Practice’. Denmark has a reputation for implementing research into daily practice. Studies like ‘Body and Cancer’ – a multimodal exercise intervention for patients with mixed cancer diagnosis undergoing chemotherapy – is for example offered to all eligible patients throughout the country. Also ‘FC Prostate’ – men with prostate cancer playing soccer – has been implemented in eight soccer clubs around the country and ‘EXHALE’ – exercise for patients with advanced lung cancer undergoing chemotherapy – is offered in the region of Copenhagen. Furthermore, as all patients with cancer by law are entitled to receive rehabilitation, all municipalities in Denmark offer cancer rehabilitation. As such this meeting will be a great venue to network with physical therapists from all over the world that provide cancer rehabilitation every day.
With this conference, we aim to bring together physical therapists working in oncology from around the globe, to exchange best practices and update knowledge based on recent scientific developments.
