ASSBI/NZRA 2019 Conference
May 2, 2019 @ 12:00 am - May 4, 2019 @ 12:00 am
On behalf of the organising committee, you are warmly invited to the ASSBI/NZRA Inaugural Trans-Tasman Conference 2019 incorporating the 42nd ASSBI Annual Brain Impairment Conference and the Bi-Annual New Zealand Rehabilitation Association’s Conference. Four half-day workshops are on Thursday followed by the 2-day conference. The conference centres on the World Health Organizations’s Rehabilitation 2030 strategy A Call for Action. We will be discussing raising awareness about rehabilitation, making rehabilitation accessible and affordable, meeting unmet needs, reducing health inequalities, and providing effective, responsive service. Part of the conference will focus on the particular needs and interests of people with brain impairments, reflect the specialist interests of ASSBI. We will also have streams for general rehabilitation topics including musculoskeletal, respiratory, cardiac, pain, and cancer related rehabilitation, reflecting the interests of the New Zealand Rehabilitation Association. With best wishes, William Levack – Convenor
