The AOCPRM Conference 2018 was held from 21-25 November at SkyCity Convention Centre in Auckland, New Zealand. A world-class shopping centre, buzzing waterfront precincts lined with restaurants, a vibrant arts and culture scene and harbour adventures right on your doorstep.

We had more than 500 delegates with a wide spectrum of professional backgrounds. This was an inter-disciplinary Conference and attracted physicians, surgeons, allied health professionals, speech language therapists, dietitians, social workers, rehabilitation network managers and coordinators, clinical psychologists, researchers, registrars, university lecturers, staff and students combining to share knowledge and contribute to rehabilitation medicine.

The Conference included invited presentations from renowned international and national speakers, a scientific programme based on peer-reviewed submitted abstracts, expert updates, and debates around current controversies in rehabilitation medicine. Presentations and handouts are available to view on the Conference programme tab.

Many thanks to our sponsors and exhibitors, your support ensured a successful Conference which could not have been possible without you.

Thank you to all who attended the Conference.
