Call for abstracts

The abstract submission process is now closed. 

Our theme: 

After the disruption of the last few years due to the COVID19 pandemic, we have the opportunity to learn from our experiences and transform ourselves, our practice, our future and our societies.  In an Australian context, embracing the reforms identified in the Aged Care and Disability sectors, and this theme reflects our embracing of the transformative changes that will come from this, including end user led services, products, and practices. 

Even more transformative in Australia is the implementation of the Uluru Statement from the Heart, an invitation to the Australian people from First Nations Australians to walk together to find a better future.  As part of OSS2023, we also have the fortune to engage with our New Zealand whanau as part of this journey in the field of wheelchairs and seating.  We embrace the concept of transformation and invite you to OSS2023 for an exploration of changing futures together.
