Huge success for OT research showcase
2 May 2014
Health Sciences hosted an Occupational Therapy Research Showcase at Cumberland campus on Wednesday 30 April. The showcase consisted of a free three-hour seminar highlighting the diverse range of research conducted by staff and students at the faculty.
Over 160 people were in attendance, which included allied health clinicians from diverse areas of practice and settings - heads of services and departments as well as representatives from the professional association and the Australian OT journal, academics, recent graduates and current OT students.
The keynote speakers for the event were Professor Lindy Clemson and Professor Anita Bundy. Staff and students presented 10 minute papers, demonstrating the diversity of research conducted by the discipline.
"It was incredibly successful" said one of the event organisers Dr Nicola Hancock, "Twenty four occupational therapy discipline academics and post graduate research students presented short 'tasters' of some of the research work they are currently engaged in."
A presentation recording of the showcase will be made available on this page in the next fortnight.
