Our presentations today continue the conference theme of Living with Uncertainty. Both Keynote Speakers are internationally recognised clinical experts who will share highlights from their creative research and clinical careers. The theme of Living with Uncertainty is then taken further in our Symposia, which consider how individuals who live with chronic uncertainty in the form of medical conditions, either in themselves or their child, can be helped to manage and thrive within the constraints of the physical limitations.
