We’re looking forward to showcasing the marvellous achievements of our Back2Work program at The Hopkins Centre’s inaugural research symposium, “Bold Ideas, Better Solutions 2017”.
The symposium brings together researchers, clinicians, service users and industry partners to share their ideas and solutions to improve the wellbeing of people with a disability and their long-term rehabilitation needs.
We will have a stand at the event to promote the Back2Work program and our team will be on site to answer any questions attendees may have.
The Back2Work program is an early intervention vocational rehabilitation program that operates within the Princess Alexandra Hospital’s Spinal Injuries Unit, supporting people with newly-acquired spinal cord injuries to return to work.
The program finds innovative solutions for both clients and their employers, working with both parties to provide the tools and support needed to allow people to continue the work they were doing before their injury.
We’re proud to be a partner of The Hopkins Centre at Griffith University, a new world-leading centre for rehabilitation and research which opened in Brisbane earlier this year.
The centre brings together research experts from the Princess Alexandra Hospital and Griffith University to focus on rehabilitation practices, disability services and social support systems.
The inaugural research symposium will be a chance for attendees to network and exchange insights into solutions for complex issues around disability and rehabilitation.
The symposium will be held on Tuesday, November 14 at the Princess Alexandra Hospital’s Russell Strong Auditorium.
