New Zealand Rehabilitation Association AGM with Invited Speaker

  • 07 Aug 2024
  • 7:00 PM - 8:30 PM



New Zealand Rehabilitation Association Annual General Meeting

7.30-8.00pm, Wednesday 7th August

with invited speaker, Mark Adams


One stroke services journey towards increasing therapy dosage 

Mark is an advanced practice physiotherapist in stroke rehabilitation working at Burwood Hospital. He is interested in evidence-practice and implementation science. 

In early 2023, the stroke services at Burwood Hospital embarked on a service improvement project using an implementation science framework. The project's aim was to increase therapy for patients, towards levels recommended by the Australian and NZ stroke guidelines.

Mark's presentation will cover current stroke rehabilitation evidence and a process for successful service improvement.

Mark will present for 40 minutes, followed by a 20-minute opportunity for discussion.

The Zoom link will be sent to you upon registration.

Please note that the event will be hosted via Zoom. We have noticed an increasing number of people (mainly Health NZ staff) who are unable to access Zoom via their work computers. We are looking into alternatives; however, all options appear to have their own unique challenges depending on organisational settings. Please discuss if and how you can access Zoom via your workplace computer with your IT support people prior to the event. We are not able to support with access issues on the day.


Please share the invitation with anyone you think might be interested in joining us for this session. We ask that they register separately so that we can contact them directly if there are any event changes, further information to share and/or follow-up resources. Thanks!

NB: We can only make these events free if people become members of the NZRA (so we can pay for the website and event management platform). If you are not already, please consider becoming a paid-up member. It costs NZ$25 per year- a bargain! Join here: https://www.rehabilitation.org.nz/join-us


If you have any questions, feel free to contact the NZRA secretary via admin@rehabilitation.org.nz prior to the event.
