Welcome to the 2016 Conference 

We believe that we have put together a conference that will be exciting to practitioners both in the private and public sectors – with three keynote speakers and a strong invited speaker list (from both interstate and within Victoria).  The keynote speakers will join us from the UK: Catherine Bowen from the University of Southampton, Trevor Prior from the Homerton University Hospital and Julie Stebbins from the Oxford University Hospital.   We have also been very fortunate to attract a range of papers from your peers that wish to share some of their work.  We have presentations spanning diabetes education to measuring plantar pressures in Elephants! 

On the day before the conference proper, we are offering a range of workshops with topics that have been specifically requested by previous conference delegates.

The conference venue - the Grand Hyatt in Collins St – is a great hotel with a conference centre that is ideally suited to our event.  Special accommodation rates are available for delegates.

Once again, the conference exhibition has attracted a full range of exhibitors and sponsors who recognise that the conference is a great opportunity to speak to delegates (and hopefully vice versa); and we have been fortunate to have the support of Footwork Podiatry (as our major sponsor) and Briggate Medical, Orthotech and Paromed as supporting sponsors.

We are genuinely looking forward to what should be a memorable conference – and hope to see you there!
