Thank you!

Thank you to everyone who contributed in making the Occupational Therapy Australia 25th National Conference & Exhibition in Adelaide, a great success. For those who attended, we hope that you gained insight and inspiration from the high quality invited and free paper presentations, workshops, forums and posters.

Thank you to the Scientific Program Committee for contributing their time and expertise by reviewing more than 500 abstracts for the conference. They also brought together a dynamic program representing research topics of international scope and professional significance.

Thank you to the abstract mentors that contributed their time to provide mentoring assistance and feedback to authors.

Thank you to our exhibitors and sponsors for showing their support for Occupational Therapy Australia, in particular AON as Conference Silver Sponsor, and Tunstall, Acorn Stairlifts and Invacare as our Bronze Sponsors.

Thank you to all the speakers and chair people who kept discussions well framed and lively.

The Occupational Therapy Australia National Conference committee were delighted to host this event in Adelaide and trust that you enjoyed your experience and the learning and networking opportunities that the Conference provided. 

We would like to thank you again for your contribution to making it such a successful Conference.

We look forward to seeing you at the next Occupational Therapy Australia National Conference in 2015 – venue yet to be announced!

Kind regards
