2018 Canadian Bone & Joint Conference

In partnership with the Canadian MSK Rehab Research Network, the Canadian Bone & Joint Conference in May 2018 was a huge success. With over 300 attendees including researchers, clinicians, trainees, patient representatives and industry partners, the 2018 edition of the CBJC more than doubled its previous attendance numbers.



Thanks to the generous support of our partners including Western University’s Bone & Joint Institute and numerous industry sponsors, final conference expenses were below the Network’s budgeted cost. This will allow the Network to reallocate some of its grant funds to future conferences and funding opportunities.


Conference highlights:

  • Forty-six Network members attended from five provinces including five oral presenters and all five Network Principal Investigators
  • Hosted an interactive priority setting session on Technology & Wearable Sensors run by Network NPI Dr. Joy MacDermid
  • Held our Annual Meeting & Update which was also attended by CIHR IMHA Scientific Director Dr. Karim Khan
  • Organized patient engagement initiatives throughout the conference
  • Our administrative team played a key role in the conference planning and organization
