ACT Research Symposium 2019
Being a researcher requires inspiration and constant dedication.
Maintaining a high level of intensity can be extremely difficult, especially when things don't go as planned.
Sometimes it's important to take a step back and get re-inspired about your work and nothing is better than condensed inspiration in the form of a symposium hearing from your peers on their research.
Join us at the annual ACT Research Symposium for a program filled with emerging research. Hear from leaders in their field and spend the day sharing new research from around Australia.
The ACT Research Symposium has been an important event in the calendar for over 20 years. Research is crucially important to physiotherapy practice and we can boast world leading researchers within our numbers, and this event offers the opportunity to nurture our future superstars and showcase the richness of our research culture in the profession.
‘Research is not something that is nice to have. It is vital for the future. Alongside our graduates, research has produced so much in the past and it will shape the economy, the development and the well-being of society in the future.'(Professor Sandra Harding, VC & President, James Cook University in her address to the National Press Club,).
The Symposium is open to all - students, physios, other Association members and non-members and provides abundant opportunity to learn, hear the latest in current research and to discuss what you've heard with your peers.
Keynote speakers will discuss Care for the carer: Why interventions aimed at enhancing clinician wellbeing are crucial to patient outcomes (Claire Ashton-James, PhD) and Getting education and exercise right for people with knee pain (Dr Christian Barton)
