 JUNE 19, 2024, 13h-19h
Lethbridge-Layton-Mackay Rehabilitation Center

This half-day event is of particular relevance to healthcare professionals, clinical managers/administrators, researchers, graduate students, research professionals, users and the general public, as well as decision-makers interested in physical rehabilitation.

REGISTRATION – Deadline May 20, 2024

ABSTRACT SUBMISSION Deadline extended until April 21, 2024

Keynote speaker

We are pleased to welcome Jonathan Jarry, Scientific communicator from McGill University, as our keynote speaker.

M. Jarry will present Not all studies are created equal: How to tell good science from “bad”? The media loves to report that a new study shows that we were wrong about something… that is, until yet another new study contradicts the previous one. Are all these studies to be believed or are some better than others? This will be a crash course in how to evaluate the scientific literature.

Registration mandatory
