This link will give you access to all speaker presentations which you are then welcome to download or print and bring with you to the EMCC. Please note that it is prohibited to copy, edit or re-distribute the information provided in any way. This information is for confirmed delegates only and is not to be shared outside of Physio First. An informative conference programme will still be provided upon registration which will include note-taking pages for those of us that prefer to write our own notes.
