You are invited to attend the biennial NZ Rehabilitation Conference. This year's conference is being held in partnership with AUT University and the University of Otago, both leaders in rehabilitation education and research in New Zealand.

The conference theme "Making an impact: putting knowledge to work in rehabilitation" aims to explore the interface between rehabilitation research and practice and the related challenges and opportunities. Research currently takes up to 20 years to find its way into practice. It is clear that we need to develop strategies for more timely and efficient uptake of knowledge into practice if we are to continue to advance the field and make a difference to those living with the disabling consequences of injury or illness.

The three-day programme aims to foster critical debate and discussion amongst delegates regarding knowledge mobilisation, and strategies for supporting uptake of new ways of working in a rehabilitation context. The programme includes plenary sessions from some of the world's leaders in implementation science research, opportunities to get up close with our keynotes, concurrent sessions, poster presentations, a panel discussion and networking opportunities.
