The Allied Professionals Forum (APF) is an educational and training forum for allied health professionals, such as physiotherapists, respiratory therapists, nutritionists, speech-language pathologists, social workers and more, who specialize in ALS/MND. This international forum offers healthcare professionals from around the world an opportunity to share ideas on good practice in the daily management of people with ALS/MND.
The International Alliance of ALS/MND Associations will host an Allied Professionals Forum. The meeting will be attended by 400+ delegates from over 40 countries around the globe.
The 2021 Allied Professionals Forum will be held on December 1 and 2, 2021. Following the success of last year’s first virtual APF and the ongoing challenges caused by the global pandemic, this meeting will once again be held online.
