The theme for the conference in 2023 is Diversity and Leadership. This theme speaks to the diverse workforce in rehabilitation medicine and the wide range of patients or clients we look after. Rehabilitation medicine leads in many aspects of healthcare and we are at the forefront of disability management.
The RMSANZ 6th ASM hopes to highlight areas of future growth in our evolving field, as well as sessions about broader and emerging areas in our day to day practice. The program aims to showcase the breadth and depth of rehabilitation medicine. We hope to provide a forum for Rehabilitation Medicine Physicians and our colleagues from allied health, nursing and related medical specialties to share knowledge, skills and experiences, to network, and to enjoy all the attractions that Hobart has to offer.
Hobart in Springtime will be great time to visit and we encourage you to bring your family. Extend your stay to relax, explore the local markets, indulge in the culinary delights and venture further in the great outdoors of Tasmania.
The organising committee and I look forward to seeing you in Hobart!
