Upcoming Conferences


Dear Colleagues,

As the countdown to ACAPN 3rd Scientific Conference and Annual General Meeting tagged "Garden City 2019" takes effect, the Scientific Council is poised for a memorable outing. In line with this, the Scientific Council is bringing "KINESIOTAPING" back on board, at the Conference. We can all recollect that, we had a tip of the iceberg in Kinesiotaping at Enugu 2018. At Garden City 2019, we intend to make it a Certification Course.


However, successful training and certification is most achieved with perfect logistics ahead of the workshop. It becomes imperative to involve the would-be participants from the scratch. In order to have a good training and avoid crowd issues, we need to have an idea of the likely number of participants. As this  information will enable the Council to put in place  perfect logistics, we humbly request that interested persons should contact us.

WHY THIS KINESIOTAPING WORKSHOP IS UNIQUE

* An introductory class was done last year at Coal City Conference. This year's workshop is to get the international certification course work completed so Participants can take full advantage of the knowledge.


* The certification is $700 for KT 1,2,3 courses in the US, so you can imagine having a fee of $70 for Nigeria, which is basically for logistics and transportation of the Facilitators.


* The same Kinesiotaping Certification workshop is slated for Ghana between Sept 27th - 29th, 2019. Nigeria PTs can not afford to lag behind.


* Another benefit of this Certification workshop is to enable participants to start using the tittle CKTP+ ( Certified Kinesio Taping Practitioner Elite). This will allow us to start using the product with better understanding for our clients from orthopedic, to Neurology, to pediatrics. 

 

* This is official, this workshop is a step by KINESIO to embark on a "train the trainer scheme" in West Africa. 

The aim is to get as many practitioners trained, so that in the near future, KINESIO would have trained instructors that will be able to teach the program to future professionals.


The Facilitator of the Kinesiotaping workshop is Dr Kenneth Wutoh from the United States. He was at our last Scientific Conference and Annual General Meeting tagged "Coal City 2018", held in Enugu last year.

At Coal City 2018, je took the participants on an introductory course in Kinesiotaping. He is now coming back to Garden City 2019 for a proper Kinesiotaping Certification Course.

TECHNOLOGICAL ADVANCES IN CONTEMPORARY PHYSIOTHERAPY PRACTICE

The Eagles are set to gather again, as Port Harcourt (the Garden City) is set to host the 3rd edition of ACAPN Scientific Conference and Annual General Meeting.


A retrospect will bring great memories of the previous editions such as; Osun 2017 & Coal City 2018. Garden City 2019 is bound to tantalize & reinvigorate our knowledge base in the profession.


Watch this space as the countdown has just started.
