The Australian Physiotherapy Association has been connecting the physiotherapy profession for almost 110 years. This year the National Conference, CONNECT 2015, will connect people, ideas and research, bringing physiotherapy professionals together to network and share information to build a better future for Australian and global physiotherapy.

Expected to attract over 1500 physiotherapists, CONNECT 2015, will provide an excellent opportunity for our profession to demonstrate its expert knowledge and skills in helping to solve a range of health problems.

The scientific committee is putting together an exciting program of scientific and professional presentations to engage delegates via the inclusion of relevant keynote addresses by experts in the local and international arena, along with workshops, papers and posters from a wealth of local talent. An exciting social program, including the popular Conference Dinner, will encourage networking amongst colleagues. The Exhibition will showcase the most relevant and cutting edge businesses for the physiotherapy profession.
