Overview

OTAC’s Seventeenth event and have we got an event for you!

 Wednesday 28th November 2018 we are heading to The Hilton Hotel for a day packed with the latest equipment and adaptation guidance, you will require in your day to day practice.

We have once again made this opportunity FREE of charge.  There will be fresh tea and coffee throughout the day and plenty of places to relax, network and grab a bite to eat either through the on-site buffet or in the hotels own restaurant.

I hope you take this opportunity to gain valuable knowledge around adaptations and equipment not only for personal development and reflection but to also to enable you to showcase the value an Occupational Therapist or individual specializing in adaptations for the disabled can bring within housing adaptations regardless of your working environment.

We hope you have a fantastic conference and enjoy networking with other professionals whilst gaining invaluable CPD opportunities for free.

At this years OTAC Newcastle conference and exhibition,  Handicare will be running a new to exhibition concept – “Case Study Clinic”

Our aim is to give you the chance to consider the potential to deliver “single carer” care to clients (personal details withheld) with complex issues, to participate in product workshops and to also consider with our equipment expert team your real-life cases that are seeking solutions through a care package.
