New Dates: Virtual OT Exchange

The OT Exchange Program is moving to new dates and the conference, organised by Occupational Therapy Australia, will now be delivered online to accommodate changes due to COVID-19.


The new dates, September 14-15, 2020 have been planned to consider the immediate needs of families, businesses and local communities during this period of rapid change.

Call for Abstracts now open – closing May 27, 2020.

To add to the original program there will be an opportunity to submit abstracts that showcase new and innovative work practices that are emerging as a result of the changing health care landscape with a call for virtual oral and ePoster abstracts.


The committee is seeking abstracts that focus on practice innovations that have been implemented as a result of COVID-19 and by sharing this information may assist others to cast a new vision for business, research and education possibilities for the future.

It is also an opportunity for anyone with a project, study, story or research from the last six months that missed the original call for abstracts to submit a virtual oral or ePoster based on the themes of Driving, Environmental Modifications, Paediatrics, Rehabilitation and Knowledge Translation.

The program for the Virtual OT Exchange is being prepared and is due for release in June 2020 with Dylan Alcott and Emma Gee confirmed as keynote speakers for the conference.
