Overview

After  4 successful OTAC events in 2017 & 10 OTAC Events in 2018, We are proud to start the first of our 9 events this year at the Hallmark hotel in Chester.

Join us on the 6th February 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.

Our expert seminars and exhibitors specialise in home adaptations and equipment for the disabled.

Who should attend:
Occupational Therapists, Occupational Therapy Assistants and support staff, Commissioners, people working within housing (surveyors, architects and technicians), Occupational Therapy students, Housing Associations, Charities Involved In Adaptations / Funding Equipment

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.
