The Theme of our conference, Preventative Healthcare, was chosen because medical science is looking more and more towards preventive healthcare measures for answers in the face of the ever-increasing cost of health, together with the challenges that some pharmaceuticals present. The field of complementary medicine has a wealth of experience to contribute to this field of healthcare, a subject that is becoming increasingly relevant and prominent in the field of health management.

This two day event provides 12 CPD points (6 CPD points per day). CPD is a standard requirement of many professionals to ensure that practitioners are up-to-date with knowledge relating to their professional practice, that they regularly re-assess or improve their skills and most important, that they attend to their own personal development. CPD serves two purposes – first, it helps maintain a high standard of practice as well as give quality assurances to the general public and second, as most therapists work by themselves, it helps them maintain a professional supportive network and helps remind them to also take care of themselves. Our conferences are aimed at bringing together lead specialist in their field to provide our members, and those interested in complementary health, with the latest in international research.

We would be delighted if you could join us on what promises to be an interesting and thought provoking event.
