Digital Annual RIMS Conference, 4-5 December 2020

From 04/12/2020 until 05/12/2020

Dear colleague,

The Organising Committee is grateful to see that rehabilitation physicians and neurologists, nurses and therapists are enthusiastically registering for the RIMS Digital Conference, confirming the importance of RIMS’ educational events. To make sure we can offer all interested participants the possibility to join, and with the health and safety of all participants and faculty in mind, the RIMS Organising Committee and RIMS Board has now decided to hold the RIMS Conference in a digital format, streamed in high definition directly to the participants on Friday, December 4 and Saturday, December 5, 2020.


The programme of the RIMS Digital Conference has been updated to accommodate the digital character of the conference. We will provide an engaging and dynamic virtual programme with the possibility to get in contact with the speakers through a Q&A session at the end of each session. Have a look at www.rims-annualconference.org/Leuven2020 for the updated programme.

On Saturday afternoon, participants have the possibility to attend one of the Special Interest Group meetings: Patient Autonomy, Communication & Swallowing, Psychology & Neuropsychology, Occupation, Mobility, Bladder, Bowel & Sexuality. Thank you for preselecting a SIG during your registration.

The platform presentations and abstracts will be published on the Conference website. More information will follow soon!

Please note that the Teaching Courses, PhD session and Nurse Training Programme have been postponed to next year.


Please note pre-registration is mandatory! A personal login to attend the RIMS Digital Conference will be shared to all registered participants.
