About OTICON’2018

Conference refers to a formal meeting where participants exchange their views on various topics. Conference can take place in different fields, and it need not be academic in nature all the time.

AIOTA has been conducting annual national conference that provides opportunities every year to occupational therapists from India and Overseas, to report on the innovative research work in the areas of academics and practice; thereby enabling professionals to share ideas with fellow-colleagues. This aims at blossoming research culture in India in the near future.

This year’s theme of the conference :

Occupational Therapy –Independence, Empowerment, Inclusion

Occupational Therapy is a health profession which works for individuals with disabilities to develop Independence and Empowers them for inclusion in the society. We as therapists need to take effective and appropriate measures to enable persons with disabilities to attain and maintain maximum independence, full physical, mental, social, vocational ability and full inclusion and participation in all aspects of life. Thus ensuring equal opportunities and mainstreaming them for sustainable development.

Statutory provision in form of Central Council still remains a major challenge for OT’s in India. AIOTA Conferences are an excellent platform to share, interact and learn from our national and international counterparts & make an impact.

The National Conferences of AIOTA with international participation is aimed to provide an important channel for exchange of information between researchers which influence the health delivery, welfare and education with the

development of excellence within the profession in India. The success of the conference not only depends on it being responsive to the professional needs and issues but participation of the members is the key to positive outcome. I am sure you all will be there on this much awaited grand academic event of AIOTA in the orange city,Nagpur. I am confident that OTICON'2018 would promote knowledge dissemination with scientific contributions from researchers, educators

and practitioners for growth of OT in India. There are several types of presentations in the conference: Competitive & Non- competitive. You are warmly invited to enrich the scientific program with your valuable contributions. Paper/Exhibits/E-Posters, related to the theme are invited in areas of Occupational Therapy Practice as listed in scientific program section.
