Inspiring Advances in Independent Occupational Therapy Practice



Sponsorship and Exhibition Opportunities

The RCOTSS-IP Annual conference attracts a large number of occupational therapy practitioners, managers, students and specialists. We are building on the success of 2016 with even larger delegate numbers and a programme focused on Inspiring Advances in Independent Occupational Therapy Practice

As a sponsor or exhibitor you can reach occupational therapists providing medico-legal work, case management, consultancy and a wide range of clinical, social and educational services. As independent practitioners our delegates can recommend products and services for their clients with greater autonomy than colleagues in the NHS and statutory services.
