Here follows the second instalment of my report on Rehabilitation International’s 21st World Congress held in Québec City from August 25th to 28th 2008. The first part is available here.

This is just an overview of the conferences I heard and the workshops I attended, what I found interesting (or, sometimes, not), what I got out of it or whatever, in some cases, I was able to understand.

And whatever I write about what was said by various speakers or what was presented in the workshops I attended is what I found interesting (or, in some cases, not), what I got out of it or whatever, in some cases, I was able to understand. So bear that in mind; this is not a play-by-play account. And I guess I should also point out that any opinions expressed herein are totally my own and do not engage my employer in any way.

Oh, and by the way, mostly mediocre photos have been posted to flickr.
