Event Overview
Welcome message:

Dear Colleagues and Friends,

As Chair of the ICPPMH 2016 Organising Committee, it is my great pleasure to welcome you all to the 6th International Conference of Physiotherapy in Psychiatry and Mental Health, which will be held in Madrid, Spain, on March 9-11, 2016. The Conference is organised by the University Carlos III of Madrid and the International Organization of Physical Therapists in Mental Health, the official subgroup of the World Confederation of Physical Therapy. The event will address innovative and effective strategies to address today’s complex health challenges such as mental health, long-lasting musculoskeletal disorders, chronic pain, psychosomatics, etc. The 6th Conference is supported by University Carlos III of Madrid and was confirmed in 2014 at the General Meeting held during the 5th International Conference in Utrecht, The Netherlands. For the 6th Conference, we selected the theme “Communication in a connected World”. This theme reflects on the digital world in our current society where communication is now spread out throughout every aspect of healthcare, enabling greater data sharing for both patients and health professionals, which is in turn empowering health settings and it’s not without challenges. 

We all are working very hard to ensure that the scientific quality of the ICPPMH 2016 Conference in Madrid will be outstanding. The Conference Venue will be at the Hotel Tryp Atocha, which is one of the best locations in the Madrid city centre nearby the museums, art galleries, and historic places. To mention a few of them, the Prado Museum, La Plaza del Sol, Plaza Mayor, Gran Via, and many outstanding restaurants and flamenco dancing shows, as well as historic monuments, parks and gardens.

Contributions are welcome including focused empirical, theoretical, and clinical practice contributions to physiotherapy in mental health and related fields including long-lasting musculoskeletal disorders, chronic pain, psychosomatics, etc. 

The participation of colleagues from all regions of the World is positively encouraged. Please contact us if you need some support such as invitation letters for visas. In order to help plan the ICPPMH 2016 and ensure the involvement and participation of the world-wide community, two committees have been set up: an International Scientific Committee has been established, and a Local Organising Committee is overseeing the running of the Conference. 

We wish you a pleasant and productive stay in Madrid and since life is not only work, do not forget to spare some time visiting Madrid. And be careful with the small and charming bars in the narrow streets of the old town, they are pretty addictive! 

Best regards, 

Daniel Catalan, PT, PhD 

Chair - Organisation Committee 

On behalf of the International Organization of Physical Therapy in Mental Health

The four star Hotel Tryp Atocha is the ICPPMH 2016 venue which is located in the historical heart of Madrid, in the so-called Arts District consisting of the city’s main museums. From the venue you can walk to all these world-class museums, delicious tapas bars, chic shops and to the exciting life nearby the Puerta del Sol, Plaza Mayor, Gran Vía, Retiro and Train Central Station Atocha. 

The whole Conference facilities are available for our group. We hope you will enjoy creating conditions for meeting, exchange and interaction across continents. 

From the venue, in just some few minutes walk you can visit the world-famous Museo del Prado, home to the largest collection of Spanish paintings by masters like El Greco, Goya and Velazquez. For modern art, see the powerful Picasso anti-war mural, Guernica, at Museo Centro de Arte Reina Sofia or get an eye-popping feast at Museo Thyssen-Bornemisza. Enjoy the green open space at Retiro Park, full of beautiful sculptures and monuments. Shop the hottest fashions in the Art Deco shopping enclave on Gran Via or dive into the madness of the Sunday morning market at El Rastro. 

If you also want to taste the delicious cuisine, do it up Madrid-style and hop from one tapas bar to another, soaking up the vivid colors and the aromas in the Ventura de la Vega and Plaza de Santa Ana areas. Nearby, you can find live music at the funky El Junco or feel the raw passion of flamenco at Casa Patas. 

All these great locations in just some few minutes walk from the Conference venue!
