The theme of FISIC ’15 was “Treatment, Recovery and Return to Play”.

Timed to coincide with the Rugby World Cup and supported by World Rugby, the content was focused on Rugby but had wider relevance, applying lessons learnt in a range of sports to current rugby issues.

The multi-disciplinary conference was aimed at orthopaedic surgeons, sports physicians, physiotherapists and other sports and exercise professionals. The programme aimed to have broad appeal, and specifically included the opportunity to debate controversial issues. An internationally renowned team of experts was brought together for the faculty in order to provide the latest insights into treatment and prevention of sporting injuries.

Running alongside the conference programme was an allied GP educational programme in Sports injury, covering MSK conditions and injuries commonly seen in a regular GP practice, by recreational athletes as well as inactive individuals.

A Faculty dinner was held on Monday night 12th October and a Conference Dinner was held on Tuesday 13th October. The after dinner speaker on the 13th was Gyles Brandreth.
