October promises a day (and night) for all members
Katrina Williams, FACP, QLD Branch President
We often hear feedback from our regional and rural members that it’s extremely difficult to attend evening lectures that they see advertised. We have taken this feedback on board and have planned
a multi-lecture day
on Saturday 8 October, to coincide with the 17th
Queensland Branch Professional Excellence Awards and Member Dinner
happening that evening.
We hope that this bumper day of professional development will give regional members a great excuse to join their metropolitan colleagues at these highlight events on the Queensland physiotherapy calendar.
Currently, the multi-lecture day program includes several renowned researchers, including Professor
, FACP, presenting on whiplash and APA Sports and Musculoskeletal Physiotherapist
Dr Leanne Bisset
, who will discuss her findings relating to tennis elbow. We have also secured presenters to give updates on Parkinson’s disease, concussion and resistance training for bone health.
The Member Dinner and awards presentation in the evening are an opportunity to acknowledge outstanding contributions that our colleagues have made to the physiotherapy profession and to celebrate a successful year with friends and colleagues.The evening will include a two-course dinner with drinks.
The multi-lecture day will be held at the APA Office at Eight Mile Plains, while the evening dinner and awards ceremony will be held at a function centre quite close to the office.
For regional members, there are several accommodation options near the APA office. Please contact our office
or phone (07 3199 9604) for more information on these accommodation options.
You can register for either event by visiting the
