Abstract Submissions Open for the 2020 Clinical Workshops

Clinical Workshops, Christchurch, 9-11 August 2020 – Abstract submissions for the 2020 Clinical Workshops are now open

Tukuna mā te wairua o Te Tiriti hei hono i a tātou mō ake tonu –
Let the spirit of the Treaty bind us all together forever


We want to make this year’s workshops interactive, engaging, educational and inclusive of new graduate and student OTs.

The programme committee warmly invites you to submit an abstract.  Please note the deadline for abstracts is 28 February 2020. This is to allow the programme to be put together much earlier than normal so that members have plenty of notice where they have access to funding.

We want to have a bi-cultural focus and we want to feature the following clinical areas:

  • Children and family
  • Mental health and addictions
  • Physical
  • Social health

The following streams will accommodate the abstract subjects:

  • Whānau Ora/Family well-being
  • Mahi Ora/Work interests/Vocational rehab
  • Kāinga Ora/Community Health/School Education
  • Te Auaha/Innovation/Entrepreneurial

We are not going to crowd the event but in fact make provision for discussion and reflection. Taking away valuable learning and practical tools for OT’s to use in their practice is the goal.
Full instructions, guidelines and resources along with the application template are available. You can access these by clicking here or going to https://www.cmnzl.co.nz/otnzwnaevents/call-for-abstracts/
