OTNZ-WNA 2021 Online event

OTNZ-WNA 2021 Online event – Starting 15 November 2021


Abstracts for the 2021 online event – applications are now closed

The programme committee warmly invites you to submit an abstract.  We want to move away from the traditional event formats and make this year’s presentations/workshops interactive, engaging, educational and inclusive of new graduate and student OTs, expert panel sessions and the trades.

In embracing the spirit of Te Tiriti o Waitangi and our treaty relationship governance model, we want to weave a bi-cultural focus into all the following streams:





Reflection and Healing (Self, Clients and Community).

We welcome a true partnership approach, working together as joint presenters for each individual presentation considering both tangata whenua and tangata tiriti world views. To accommodate this, only one of the presenters needs to be occupational therapists.

Leading up to the online event, a practice run is essential for all presenters concerned. We ask this to be no later than one week out from the event.
