2022 Virtual Conference
October 22, 2022
CALL for PRESENTERS
This is the official call for proposals for live presentations for the Occupational Therapy Association of Oregon (OTAO) 2022 Annual Conference! The vision of conference 2022 is to identify and celebrate all the avenues for Occupational Therapy as a career. As a result, we are seeking out presenters in non-traditional Occupational Therapy settings and those TRAILBLAZING Occupational Therapy Practitioners who have started their own businesses. Moving into 2022 and beyond, we can see that the world, healthcare, and occupational therapy will forever be changed from the pandemic. The committee is looking for presentations that are leading edge practices or current concepts – all specialties are welcome.
We are now soliciting a variety of one-hour and two-hour presentations that will both complement and enhance a strong conference experience. The presentations may include single or multiple presenters. Formats may vary from traditional lecture sessions with one or more presenters to short-form case presentations such as complicated patient cases, or brief research platforms. The committee is open to hearing unique ideas.
The OTAO Conference Committee will evaluate and select proposals that are relevant to the scope of occupational therapy (foundational knowledge, service delivery, and professional issues). Please note that your submission is on a volunteer-basis and if selected, OTAO will not be able to give an honorarium. Oregon OT practitioners who present, will receive two contact hours for their professional presentation (see OAR 339-020-0020). Please note this is a live virtual event and your presentation will be recorded, and made available for attendees to view on-demand on the WHOVA conference platform for 90 days following the event.
If you would like to be considered to present at conference, please complete and submit your proposal via the link below by Friday, July 15th, 2022. If you submitted early for feedback, please submit the revised, final proposal by June 27th, 2022. Presenters will be notified of acceptance in July 2022.
