22-23 June 2020 – OT Exchange – Virtual Conference

The OT Exchange is an interactive conference for all working within the broad spectrum that is occupational therapy where participants are encouraged to contribute, share and employ ideas of value.

The conference is themed around three key concepts of Learn, Practice and Enrich.
