On behalf of Rehabilitation Medicine Society of Australia and New Zealand (RMSANZ) and the Conference Committee, I look forward to welcoming all members of RMSANZ, our medical, nursing, allied health colleagues and community partners out of Covid hibernation to attend the RMSANZ 5th Annual Scientific Meeting, which has been postponed and will now be held from 22 - 25 June 2021, at the Gold Coast Convention and Exhibition Centre, QLD.
The theme for RMSANZ 2021 is Forging Alliances – New Horizons. In the midst of cataclysmic carnages that Covid-19 has wrought upon our society and health system, this theme speaks to the precious, enduring bond we have with our patients and with one another, the unfolding and expanding possibilities arising from a paradigm-shifting event, as well as heralding the collaborative and inter-disciplinary nature of future rehabilitation practice both in the hospital setting and in the communities.
The program aims to showcase the breadth and depth of latest scientific research and provide opportunities for RMSANZ members and our colleagues from allied health, nursing, community partners and related medical specialties to share knowledge, skills and experiences, to network, and to enjoy all the attractions that Gold Coast has to offer.
With an ounce of luck, Queensland borders will have reopened by the conference and the warmth of winter sun on the Gold Coast will rejuvenate our weary but relieved bodies. Whether you plan to recharge at the conference, to refresh in the lush hinterlands, to reconnect with family in the theme parks, to restock in worldclass shopping malls, or simply to relax by the pristine beach, we look forward to seeing you on the Gold Coast!
Dr Benjamin Chen MBBS FAFRM
Convenor, RMSANZ 2021
