Global experts to gather in Monaco for IOC World Conference on sport injury and illness prevention

Advancements at the highest levels of athlete care and sports medicine are to be explored at the upcoming IOC World Conference on Prevention of Injury and Illness in Sport, which is being held in Monaco between 29th February and 2nd March.

The International Olympic Committee (IOC) has long been a forerunner in promoting advancement in sports-related medicine and treatments, and the seventh edition of its dedicated World Conference on Prevention of Injury and Illness in Sport is set to highlight the latest insights and innovations that are changing how teams and their medical staff approach athlete care.

The conference promises a rich programme featuring topics such as the integration of artificial intelligence into athletes’ healthcare plans, how the safety of sportsmen and women in the more extreme disciplines can be balanced against their pushing of sports’ boundaries and the findings of new research studies on issues including mental health and respiratory illnesses.

“Every athlete knows that injury and illness are an inherent risk to any sporting career,” says Thomas Bach, IOC President. “Athletes are at the heart of the Olympic Movement, and so it is only natural that the athletes’ health is a top priority for the International Olympic Committee. The IOC World Conference on the Prevention of Injury and Illness in Sport is one expression of how the IOC always puts the health of athletes first. Bringing together leading experts and practitioners in sports medicine from around the world, this conference is an ideal platform for sharing and disseminating the latest research and best practices in the field of injury and illness prevention in sport.”

Beyond the exchange of knowledge, the conference will also provide opportunities for networking alongside interactive workshops and sessions specifically tailored to young athletes and those eager to build a career in the sports medicine field.

The IOC World Conference on Prevention of Injury and Illness in Sport will be hosted at the Grimaldi Forum.
