HPX Symposium 3 "Athlete Health: From top to bottom and everything in between!"
In 2013, the Institute of Sport (now Sport Ireland Institute) identified the need to create and stage compelling knowledge exchange events in order to create a debate on current concepts of world class practice while building relationships in order to enhance multi disciplinary teamwork in the field.
Since 2013, two major conferences have been completed which have addressed key themes central to the role of coaches, science & medical professionals and performance leaders. In 2014, the HPX Conference addressed the role of Culture and Philosophy in driving excellence from a professional practice perspective. Meanwhile in 2015, the HPX Conference addressed a fundamental yet highly significant question (“What is World Class?”) concerning the standards required to achieve world class outcomes on the global stage. These conference
opportunities have provided much needed opportunities for coaches, leaders and science professionals to connect in one space and stimulate best practice teamwork.
2017 marks a new level of ambition for the HPX knowledge exchange. We have planned a series of discipline-specific mini conferences on the lead in to HPX 2017, which will take place on October 6th – 7th in the Sport Ireland National Indoor Arena on the Sport Ireland National Sports Campus. These mini conferences will provide professionals with a much needed opportunity to access cutting edge insights while building and maintaining their professional network. The third event in our knowledge exchange series will take place on October 5th on the Sport Ireland National Sports Campus. Dr. Sharon Madigan (Head of Performance Nutrition, Sport Ireland Institute) and Antonia Rossiter (Head of Physiology, Sport Ireland Institute) have come together to create an opportunity for support professionals in the combined areas physiology and nutrition to address the core theme of “Athlete Health: From Top to bottom and everything in between!”. Further HPX events will be announced over the coming weeks across psychology, performance analysis and elite coach development.
