Hosted By Prof Lynda Holt & Prof Brian Dolan OBE

The Global Summit is the biggest annual event of the #EndPJparalysis movement.

This year it is running live from 8am - midnight on Wednesday 10th July and 7am - 8pm on Thursday 11th July. Attendance is free to any health, social and care professionals as well as students and educationalists. After the live event, content is available online through the endpjparalysis.org web portal.

Deconditioning is not just an older person’s issue. Let’s talk about younger people, those living with cancer or who have suffered trauma, let’s think about chronic illness. We know deconditioning is exacerbated (or even caused) by hospital admission, and we’ve seen and heard lots about the great work already happening to combat it AND need to move beyond the hospital. Reducing deconditioning is about education and support, which needs to happen in our communities and in people’s homes.

This year we'll host an eclectic mix of speakers, panel discussions and create the opportunity to ask questions and build up peer networks. It will bring people together from across the world to share best practice, to explore the research, case studies and to understand the lived experience and impact of deconditioning. You can expect a wide range of clinical presentations as well as leadership discussions and perspectives on looking after those in the caring professions.
