The Rehab for Kids conference is a national conference organised by the Queensland Paediatric Rehabilitation Service (QPRS), Queensland Children’s Hospital, and partnered with the Australasian Cerebral Palsy Clinical Trials Network (AusCP-CTN), to provide the latest information and research relevant to paediatric rehabilitation.

The 3-day virtual conference will include dedicated single streams with various national and international keynote addresses, short multidisciplinary presentations and case reviews, along with research papers. The single-stream sessions will be held online via Zoom.

The program will provide you with opportunities to update skills and knowledge with colleagues involved in the rehabilitation of children with brain injuries, cerebral palsy, spinal cord injury, limb difference and other low incidence conditions.
