BCA Conference 2022: ‘The Homecoming’

The Vox, Birmingham International Birmingham International Complex

05/11/2022 - 06/11/2022

We are back in-person, by popular demand from our members, so get ready for the most exciting BCA event yet

Our annual BCA Conference is back and better. This exciting Homecoming will see BCA members, students and the healthcare community come together to discuss some of the most important issues facing the sector and celebrate the BCA’s new Mission: to be the home of chiropractors who put patients first.

Across every healthcare discipline, patients are at the centre and an integrated approach to healthcare is essential to being patient centric. This commonality links all healthcare professionals.

Integral to the healthcare community, BCA Conference 2022: The Homecoming will celebrate multi-disciplinary working, with chiropractors, GPs, physiotherapists and other MSK specialists coming together with one common goal of patient-first care.

Huge amount of workshops and hands-on content!

The BCA’s Vision is for chiropractic to be integral to UK healthcare and this year’s conference will demonstrate how BCA chiropractors are building credibility as evidence-informed experts within modern, multi-disciplinary healthcare teams; from the latest clinical research to how a multi-disciplinary approach works in practice to put patients first.

You won’t want to miss our fresh take on the annual conference, or the opportunity to connect with your peers after the enforced break we have all navigated. Back in person also means hands on CPD opportunities, not to mention the all-important catch ups and laughs during breaks, in the bar, at the Gala Dinner or on the morning BCA team run!

Information for Student Members

The BCA is able to provide a number of free student places, including transport to and from the venue (The Vox Conference Centre, Birmingham), for Saturday 5 November. With this offer, we are aiming to bring student delegates to the conference, without the complexity of having to source accommodation for the Saturday night, which would have been at their own expense.

Student members, who are interested in attending the first day of the conference free of charge, can contact their BCA Committee Rep(s) for more information. You can find the names of the BCA Committee Rep(s) for each university below:

  • Katie Mihalovics and Clea Reid (Teesside University)
  • Ami Ashby and Hazle Park (London South Bank University)
  • Nicola Green (McTimoney College of Chiropractic)
  • Jill Cheung (AECC University College)

We are currently liaising with WIOC, University of South Wales, and will announce the name(s) of the representative(s) that student members from USW can contact in the coming months. Please keep an eye on this event page and look out for information in upcoming BCA emails.
