Rehabilitation Education Forum 2019

The annual Rehabilitation Network Education Forum was held at the Kirribilli Club on Friday 26 July 2019. Over 90 clinicians attended in person with a further 30 viewing via Livestream. The opening address was given by Louisa Hope, Lindt CafĂ© Survivor. There were a further 14 presentations from medical, nursing and allied health Network members on a range of topics including tele-health for rehabilitation, measuring the person-centred rehabilitation experience and the paediatric rehabilitation model of care. The much-anticipated “Principles to Support Rehabilitation Care” was launched with a presentation from Working Party member Dr Julie Pryor and Co-chair Dr John Estell who outlined the plan for implementation of this document across NSW.
