ASSBI 2024 Conference Full Programme

ASSBI 2024 Conference Abstracts Booklet

The theme for this year is “Looking Ahead: Innovations and Aspirations” to reflect ASSBI’s vision towards supporting innovation in knowledge and practice for best possible treatment and care. This theme also highlights our aspiration to have an impactful role in supporting brain conditions.

This year, the conference will be held at the magnificent Four Seasons Hotel Sydney, Australia. The conference will be hybrid with abstracts accepted for in-person or pre-recorded presentations ONLY.

Our exciting program will include 6 half-day workshops on Thursday 2nd May from renowned international Julia Rucklidge, Nicholas Behn and national speakers Tamara Ownsworth, Michelle Kelly,  Michelle Villeneuve and a workshop chaired by Jennie Ponsford and given by Drs Lucy Ymer, Kate Frencham, Natalie Grima and Monique Roper. There will also be Keynote presentations from Julia, Nick, Tamara and Michelle K on Friday 3rd May and Saturday 4th May. 

The conference will include platform presentations, “How-to” sessions, datablitz presentations and posters. You are invited to be a part of this part of our programme by submitting an abstract for a 15-minute platform, a 30 or 60 minute “How-To” Session, a 5-minute Datablitz, or a poster. The programme will be drawn from abstracts covering all facets of brain impairment and rehabilitation across the lifespan. PLEASE NOTE that we will be expecting presenters to attend in person or send in a recording. ALSO all presenters accepted will be expected to pay to attend.

ASSBI is a multidisciplinary society and we encourage researchers, health professionals and students in areas such as neuropsychology, clinical psychology, speech pathology, occupational therapy, physiotherapy, social work, neurology, psychiatry, rehabilitation, recreation, exercise physiology, nursing, medicine and service coordination to contribute and take part.
