The Future - Moving Forward

The Association is a multidisciplinary group of healthcare and OHS professions aimed at sharing ideas and prompting continuous improvement in the systems, training, equipment and assistive devices available to safely move and handle people in the health and community services environments. The theme of the 2018 Conference continues to build on these areas and incorporates three pillars:

  • Predictions
  • People
  • Preventions


The conference planning committee invite you to submit abstracts for either oral presentation, workshops or new inventors.

Oral Presentations: Papers will be allocated a total of 25 minutes presentation time. This will include 20 minutes for the presentation and five minutes for questions. Those abstracts not selected for paper presentation may be offered a poster presentation or display space.

Workshops: Workshop presenters are asked to indicate the length of time they will require to present their workshop, anywhere from one hour to four hours. Those abstracts not selected for workshops may be offered a poster presentation or display space.
