This week over 120 physiotherapists attended the 6th Annual Physiotherapy and Exercise Physiology Research and Innovation Conference at Monash Health.
Presentations were themed into Models of Care, Falls Prevention and Service Review and Development and covered the continuum of care from acute through sub-acute to the community.
It was fantastic to hear about the incredible research taking place and see how our Monash Health Physiotherapy and Exercise Physiology research culture has grown over the years.

Lisa McLeod, a Psychologist at Black Dog Institute, visited our staff at Dandenong Hospital for R U OK Day to speak about mental health and wellbeing in the workplace.
Lisa provided insight into how anxiety, depression and other mental health issues can affect our wellbeing in the workplace, and how to start a conversation about mental health.
1 in 5 Australians are affected by mental illness each year, and the workplace can play a significant role in our mental health and wellbeing.
If you notice that a friend, loved one, colleague, team mate or neighbour is struggling, there has been a change in their behaviour or you feel like something is not quite right, start the conversation and ask #RUOK?
