Thank you for your interest in the 2nd Victorian Allied Health Research Conference. The Victorian Allied Health Research Conference aims to showcase the breadth and depth of research being undertaken across the allied health professions in Victoria, and bring allied health together as a collective, to problem solve the challenges facing health and human services

Unfortunately we are unable to accept any more registrations as, with over 460 delegates, we are at  venue capacity. My sincere apologies for any disappointment or inconvenience this may cause.

The VAHRC is a biennial event and will be held again in 2019. I hope you will join us then.

Meanwhile the 12th National Allied Health Conference: Responsive Services, Reliable Systems, Resilient Workforce will be held at Sydney International Convention Centre, 26-29 August 2017, and promises to be a wonderful conference.
