Call for presentations
Under the theme, ‘Delivering and developing excellence in osteopathic healthcare’, the major international osteopathic organisations are seeking workshops and presentations for inclusion in the 2023 osteopathic convention.
Organisations in the United Kingdom (UK) and across the world are coming together at this two-day international conference to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the first regulatory recognition of osteopathy outside the United States of America (USA).
In 1993 the UK was the first country to gain regulatory recognition for osteopathy as a healthcare profession outside the USA. Since then, many other countries have sought and gained this significant achievement for the profession, recognising its contribution to delivering excellence in healthcare.

Delivering and developing excellence in osteopathic healthcare
The event organisers, a collaboration of the major osteopathic organisations in the UK and international associations, are now calling for presentations for the conference. Under the theme, ‘Delivering and developing excellence in osteopathic healthcare’, we are seeking workshops and presentations for inclusion in the streams of education, led by the University College of Osteopathy, research led by the National Council for Osteopathic Research, and clinical practice, led by the Institute of Osteopathy.
Please complete one or more of the links below to submit your expressions of interest to present.
We intend to provide a forum to share experiences and practices from a wide range of osteopathic schools and institutions. We welcome the submission of a range of types of work, including work based on descriptive accounts, educational experience of curriculum review, implementation of practice and educational delivery and assessment.
For more information and guidance for submissions for the education stream visit here.
We would welcome a range of clinical practice topics and in particular, those that seek to highlight the lessons we have learnt in building recognition through clinical development, regulatory advances, better practice development including multidisciplinary practices, public awareness and recognition, as well as in education and research.
For more information and guidance for submissions to the clinical practice stream visit here.
Talks can be on any topic, but they must be well-researched and evidence-informed. We welcome research studies and position ‘pieces’, well-argued philosophical ideologies, theories or commentaries.
We would like to be able to showcase the work and the forward-thinking nature of the profession.

We very much hope that colleagues in the UK and internationally will join us at this landmark event for osteopathy where we will focus on how we continue to develop excellence in osteopathic healthcare.
