20th Physiotherapy Forum

This year our ICS Pelvic Floor Physiotherapists celebrate 20th years of the Physiotherapy Forum. At the ICS meeting in 1985, there were only 2 physiotherapists in attendance: Jo Laycock and Dorothy Mandelstam. At the ICS in Tampere in 2000, Marijke Slieker ten Hove organized a meeting about pelvic floor education and invited about 12 physio members of the ICS. Since then a forum has been held each year and hosts on average 150 physiotherapists from all over the globe. It serves the purpose to discuss interesting patients or ways of treating them, of the educational workshops and their composition. The Forum encourages new physio members to join the ICS, assisted with networking, encouraging research and the presentation of the research findings.

20 years on the forum is still an amazing opportunity for physiotherapists, or anyone interested in physiotherapy, to network, enjoy presentations from emerging and established researchers and clinical leaders and most of all, have fun. It’s a shame that we cannot be together face to face this year but the Forum programme includes a variety of topics and join us in the break in the ICS Live Lounge to see each other face to face, albeit on a screen! Bring a cocktail or a coffee depending on what time of day it is in your country and we will cheers together!!
