Call for Proposals for the 2013 Fall Scientific Symposium

October 11, 2013

Pain is “an unpleasant sensory and emotional experience associated with actual or potential tissue damage, or described in terms of such damage.” 1 It is often the reason individuals seek PT and may be the criterion they use to measure intervention success. For this reason the Ohio Physical Therapy Association 2013 Scientific Symposium will explore the science of pain and its implications for physical therapy practice. 

The conference committee is seeking presentations that directly relate the science of pain to physical rehabilitation. Topics may be drawn from a variety of fields including, but not limited to:  neuroscience, physiology, kinesiology, immunology, psychology, and pharmacology.

Proposals should include the following information about the presentation:

  1. Title
  2. Description of the presentation clearly incorporating scientific principles of pain that have direct implications for physical therapy practice
  3. Learning objectives
  4. Expected length (30-90 minutes)
  5. Presenter information: name, contact, knowledge and expertise on the topic

Stipends will be offered based on length of presentation. The conference will be held in Columbus, OH on Friday October 11, 2013.

Physical Therapists must be APTA members in order to be considered. Those interested should submit a proposal via email to by June 1, 2013.
