Speaking Engagements


SARRAH Conference, Darwin 2018

Innovative Rehab partnered with Pam Garton (from Abilita Services) at the 2018 SARRAH Conference. Our workshop: Innovative Approaches to building Pain Management Service Capacity in rural and remote locations generated much discussion and debate.

How best do we get key recovery messages to people with pain in rural and remote areas?  

We enjoyed hearing about innovative allied health service models, the uniqueness of life in rural remote areas, differences in community culture and the resilience and resourcefulness of our rural and remote allied health colleagues!

Innovative Rehab and Abilita have produced a webinar on Developing and Managing an Effective Pain Service

National Allied Health Conference, Sydney, 2017

We were honoured to present a poster at last year’s National Allied Health Conference on service developments in chronic illness populations.  The presentation sparked some wonderful discussions with great people about the service challenges in all sorts of locations.

Did you know over 7 million Australians have at least one chronic health condition, generating billions of dollars of avoidable health expenditure every year? The inter-professional practice model is a natural fit for the treatment of chronic illness, but it doesn’t fit easily within the constraints of our current health system.

The poster below illustrates our proposed model for the design and implementation of innovative allied health programs, aligned with current literature and informed by practice.

Poster - Innovative Service Development in Chronic Illness Populations

15th National Rural Health Conference, Hobart 2019
We were super excited to present a poster at National Rural Health Conference, summarising our learnings about remote pain rehab, through our work with Pain NT .

Pain rehabilitation in remote areas presents distinct challenges that are different from those in urban settings, however, these challenges are not insurmountable.

Innovative Rehab are proud to be a part of the inaugural Interprofessional Health, Education & Practice (IHEP) International Conference. This conference complements VU’s commitment to interprofessional education and practice though its IPE program by bringing together an international community of scholars and clinicians.
