    The hands-on experience, the moment we were all waiting for.

    Our students were not left out, they were guided to try the techniques neither was our indefatigable financial secretary (PT Famude) left out, he proved his expertise was more than handling money

    The theory session of the Pre-conference Workshop, brainstorming lessons were delivered by Dr. Chris McCarthy.
    A quick glimpse at the participants, you will agree with me Dr. Chris understands the rudiments of Combined Movement Therapy and was able to hold the attention of the entire participants.

    ACAPN is simply the best, raising the bar and rebranding the face of Physiotherapy in Nigeria and beyond.

    And the pre-conference workshop proper. This is the first time for over 10 years I've been attending conferences to witness a pre-conference workshop so well attended that we had two classes for a pre-conference workshop ACAPN has once again stepped up the bar as we had a technical/ICT Ensuring that every bit of the event was live projected on the screen in the second hall. Have you heard of combined movement therapy, if you weren't there you are wrong? We believe in knowledge sharing in ACAPN in that spirit just know that it has two phases. Phase 1- and Phase 2. One- patient is placed in the opposite direction of pain there is an initial therapy benefit but then it plateaus, when it plateaus what then what next ........... That's why u should never miss any pre-conference workshop because it's worth every cent of your money. If you want value for your money think ACAPN pay ACAPN to get value for your money

    Do you love to pay attention to details? ACAPN is the real deal, I warmly present to you Dr. Chris McCarthy the clinical lead of the clinical unit of the Manchester School of Physiotherapy, a wonderful personality, and an amazing teacher in the classroom. ACAPN had a convoy with a constant security detail ensuring the smooth and free movement of our facilitator. Do u know this was his first time in Africa? Guess what ACAPN ensured the first country he visits in Africa is Nigeria despite the initial concerns given the news in the media about our dear country in Dr. Chris McCarthy words ACAPN gave him a royally treat, in fact, he went further to declare his support and love for ACAPN being so young yet so organized and a goal-getter

  • APPRECIATION!!!

    Good morning senior colleagues and colleagues, we thank God for the success of  EKO 2021, ACAPN's 5th Scientific and annual conference. 

    Hip hip hurray ACAPN is 5 years old this year 

    The conference was so colorful and full of life to the brim that I, the ever-energetic me was even overwhelmed.

    Hence I couldn't deliver the live reportage as the conference was ongoing, as you know my usual style of reportage.

     *But don't despair I got it all covered, from the very first day to the party after party*.

    Have u heard of the chop life geng of ACAPN?

    I know u are itching to know these and many more.

    ACAPN works the talk, you want to see some of the dignitaries who made our high table colorful, or is it the officers from the Navy to the military, in fact, the security details were topnotch.

    In fact, need I say more, you desire knowledge, integrity, harmony, serenity, and fun while learning then ACAPN is the sure place to be

  • 100+ Abstracts...What a history made!

    The scientific sessions of the EKO-2021 ACAPN Conference which took place on Thursday, October 21, 2021, was very successful. It started with a very stimulating presentation on Male Sexual Dysfunction by our very own Dr. Mike Ogunlana, Ph.D. The presentation was very participatory in that people asked questions and also shared their experiences in line with the topic. The presentation was immediately followed by the scientific sessions. 

    We had 100+ abstracts submitted and presented. These abstracts cut across several areas of Physiotherapy and health in general. It was indeed a wonderful time. It will interest you to know that even our professors are still actively researching and presenting papers!

    Furthermore, we had a large number of students present quality papers worth publishing! This shows that the future of our dear profession is very bright.

    Our impartial judges were very professional and discharged their duties excellently. Kudos to them!

    I must give kudos to the indefatigable and energetic chairman of the Scientific Council, a researcher per excellence, Dr. Chidozie E Mbada, and his crew who worked so hard to ensure the smooth running of the programme.


    Long live Physiotherapy in Nigeria!
    PR-CREW, ACAPN
