Event description
The Transplant Athlete - An Evolving Challenge

About this Event

This inaugural conference focusses upon the transplant athlete and is hosted by The Society of Sports Therapists in collaboration with Coventry University.. The conference aims to promote research pertaining to transplant athletes and thus contribute to the evidence base of transplant sport and promote the contribution of sport and exercise therapists supporting Transplant Sport. The overall conference objective is to provide a platform to identify areas for development of training and performance guidelines for transplant athletes. Keynote speakers include Sir Maurice Slapak, UK, transplant surgeon and founder of the Transplant Games and Dr. Tania Janaudis-Ferreira, School of Occupational and Physical Therapy, McGill University, Canada.

As well as accepting primary research within the area of transplant sport the conference also strives to embrace the athletes own stories and journeys through the submission of short videos. Thus, the conference truly aims to reflect all who are involved in the support of the athlete (i.e. medical staff, coaches, academics and practitioners) and the athletes themselves to ensure all perspectives are integrated.

Parking is available on site for £1, including spaces for people with disability.
