The CAPM&R 64th Annual Scientific Meeting will be held on May 25-29, 2016 at the Doubletree by Hilton London Ontario, 300 King Street, London, Ontario, and will feature a multi-disciplinary scientific program, renowned guest speakers, an extensive two-day trade show and a great social program. It is a unique opportunity to update your skills and knowledge and to network with Healthcare professionals and students with a focus on physical medicine and rehabilitation. The Annual General Meetings for CAPM&R and CPRDF will be held during this meeting. The theme is “Cognitive Vitality”. The goal is to highlight the role played by the mind and cognition in all aspects of rehabilitation medicine. We encourage our speakers and conference attendees to explore cognitive vitality in clinical practice, research and education. The following examples are meant to be illustrative and not directive. 1) Exploration of reflection in medical education, 2) Exploration of the role of neuro-protectant medication in stroke and or TBI rehabilitation. 3) fMRI neuroplasticity in Nerve injury.
