Conference Dates 1st, 2nd, 3rd December 2021

Cut off Date for presenters to submit their presentation proposal – 1st September


My Potential believes that all consumers are experts in their health, including Occupational Therapists who live with a disability, injury, illness or health condition. We believe that lived experience experts can create a powerful sense of hope for our consumers and other occupational therapists.

This conference will provide occupational therapists with the opportunity to hear from their peers about how they have applied occupational therapy concepts and interventions to their own life.

We believe there is no better way to learn than from someone who has both studied and applied Occupational Therapy to their life.

It is anticipated that this event will lead to improved client-centred and evidence-based treatment for our communities.

Be ready to be amazed by the incredible and inspiring journey’s that this conference will share!
