FOCUS2022PHYSIOTHERAPY CONFERENCE26 - 28 May, Crown Perth Convention CentreA VISION OF THINGS TO COME

WELCOME TO FOCUS 2022

As COVID-driven uncertainty across Australia continues, and in the interests of the safety of members and their patients, the APA have made the difficult decision to postpone their upcoming conferences, both THRIVE 2021 and FOCUS 2022.

FOCUS 2022 will be postponed from the current dates of 26 – 28 May 2022 to dates later in the year still to be confirmed. 

The new date for the close of Abstract Submissions will be 28 February 2022.

Further details regarding the new FOCUS conference dates will be announced soon, please keep checking the website and look out for the APA announcements.

APA thank you for your understanding and patience during these uncertain times, but hope that the changed dates will allow all invited and abstract speakers the opportunity to participate and showcase their work at a world class conference in a safe face to face format, with few restrictions.

The new dates will also enable delegates to maximise their conference experience as well as maximise networking opportunities and attend our renowned social events.

We look forward to welcoming you to Perth!
