The Allied Health Professions’ Office of Queensland is recruiting three (3) consumer representatives to participate individually in 5-minute consumer experience videos that will be played as a key part of the 13th National Allied Health Conference scientific program on 6 + 7 August 2019.

What is Allied Health?

Allied health professionals are health professionals that are not part of the medical, dental or nursing professions. They are university qualified practitioners with specialised expertise in preventing, diagnosing and treating a range of conditions and illnesses. Allied health practitioners often work within a multidisciplinary health team to provide specialised support for different patient needs.

Allied health services include, but are not limited to: physiotherapy, occupational therapy, nutrition and dietetics, psychology, social work, speech pathology, pharmacy, orthoptics, and podiatry.

Who is it for?

  • Video 1: an older consumer whose life has been affected by avoidable hospital stays.
  • Video 2: a mother that required allied health assistance during their pregnancy or a family with a child under 2 years old that has required allied health assistance.
  • Video 3: a consumer who has engaged with a number of allied health practitioners.
