Mindful of its responsibility to ensure that prosthetics, orthotics and rehabilitation practice keeps pace with healthcare advances, ISPO convenes Consensus Conferences, often in collaboration with partner organisations.
By considering relevant recent research and contemporary thinking in healthcare, widely recognized experts identify the implications for research and clinical practice and determine the direction in which a particular field should move.
Consensus procedures aim to:
- foster debate, exchange of information and cooperation
- advance research and evidence based practice
- facilitate innovative and appropriate technology development
