Indian Federation of Neurorehabilitation (IFNR) - the umbrella body of all experts involved in Neurorehabilitation in the country - is happy to announce that its 11th Annual Conference IFNRCON 2023 will be held from 14th to 16th April 2023. Taking the initiative forward of reaching out to as many neurorehab professionals globally as possible, this year the conference is planned as a Hybrid event. This will ensure global participation in the conference - both delegates as well as faculty. IFNRCON 2023 will be held jointly with the Neurorehabilitation sub-group of the Indian Academy of Neurology (IAN).
There will be a day of pre-conference Assisted Technology workshops followed by 2 days of the conference. Theme for IFNRCON 2023 is Reaching the Unreachable, Globally. Aim of the conference is to get experts from all fields involved in neurorehabilitation to present latest research and advances that are being used across the globe to improve quality of life of patients and evolve a standardized approach which can be replicated across centers. The conference is an ideal platform to learn and collaborate for all the professionals involved in patient care and neurorehabilitation like Neurologists, Neurosurgeons, Rehab Physician, Developmental Paediatricians, Physical Therapists, Speech and Swallow Therapists, Occupational Therapists, Clinical Psychologists, Music Therapists, Special Educators etc.
The interactive format and hybrid platform will ensure that the sessions have a two-way communication process where delegates can interact with the expert faculty, making the whole learning process personalized and fun. IFNRCON 2023 scientific program has a mix of joint symposia, guest lectures, orations and the neurorehab quiz which has very well received over the past 2 years.
E-Poster presentations are planned for both days of the conference, with 1st and 2nd prizes for each day. In continuation of IFNRs commitment to encourage research by young professionals, there will be 10 IFNR Young Fellowship Awards given which include certificate and cash prize.
