About the conference

Aim of the conference

The 2nd International Rehabilitation Conference is a 2-day event, with presentations delivered by researchers from the international community, including presentations from keynote speakers and state-of-the-art lectures. It will be held at Metropolitan College, Maroussi Campus, Athens, Greece, on 4-5 of November, 2022. All registered papers will be published in the Conference Proceedings. 

This common interdisciplinary platform is expected to:

Highlight the rehabilitation definition of WHO, as a set of interventions designed to optimise functioning and reduce disability in individuals, in interaction with their environment, where rehabilitation is an investment in human capital that contributes to health, economic and social development to create enabling environments. (see REHABILITATION 2030)

Communicate to professionals, academics, researchers, students and services the Rehabilitation Competency Framework of WHO, with the most recent scientific evidence.

Highlight the fact that disability is a human rights issue and communicate it at a local and international level, by raising awareness about people with disabilities and their struggle for equal rights.

The Scientific and Organising Committees of the conference invite citizens with disabilities, service providers, funding bodies, professional organisations, research organisations, academic institutions, non-governmental and governmental organisations, as well as national and international organisations to actively participate in the 2nd International Rehabilitation Conference.
