Call for submissions
The Australian Physiotherapy Association (APA) is calling for abstract submissions for Free Papers, How To Sessions, Rapid Five, Posters and Symposia. THRIVE 2021 will build upon the success of the APA Conference 2019 and bring together all the APA National Groups, which represent the full diversity of Australian physiotherapy.
The Conference will feature prominent Australian and International researchers and clinicians presenting cutting edge scientific research underpinned by clinical practice knowledge.
Held every two years, the APA Conference provides an outlet for researchers and practitioners to network and exchange ideas. We invite all researchers, practitioners and clinicians to submit their abstracts to the Scientific Committee.
Authors whose abstracts are accepted for presentation at the Conference will be invited to make either a:
- 15 minute oral presentation (10 minutes with 3 – 5 minutes for questions and change over)
- How To session (30 minute)
- Rapid Five presentation (5 slides, 5 minutes)
- Structured Symposium (45 minutes)
The Conference Program will be formatted with the assistance of the APA National Groups. The Call for Abstracts is open to any abstract that fits within one or more National Group(s), as per below, but may also be submitted under a broad Physiotherapy theme without being restricted to any National Group.
