Calling for presentation submissions ahead of Allied Health Assistant Day 2021

Allied Health Assistant Day banner

Monash Health is calling for presentation submissions ahead of Allied Health Assistant (AHA) Day, which will run for the fifth consecutive year in 2021. Last year was the first in the event’s history where it was run virtually via the Webex platform. We had a record number of attendees from all over Australia.

This year’s AHA Day – to be held on 17 November – looks to be bigger and better, with the event now offering a full day’s worth of highly regarded presenters. We look forward to providing this up-and-coming workforce with continued, high quality and professional development opportunities. Download save-the-date poster here.

The program includes consumer insights, poster presentations, AHA innovation presentations and keynote speaker Emma Gee. The theme for the event this year will be the Value that AHAs contribute to an organisation. Download a copy of the preliminary program here.

Abstract Submissions

Following the success of last year’s presentations, AHAs across Australia are again encouraged to present at this year’s event. These presentations can be in one of two formats:

  • Electronic poster display; or
  • Online presentations of 5 minutes duration, delivered via Webex

We are looking for AHAs in their respective fields who add Value to their organisation by being a part of an innovation for AHA service or practice. We want to hear from AHAs who are doing outstanding things and who would like to share their experiences with other AHAs from across Australia. We also want to hear from you if you’ve had to innovate in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

If you would like to submit an abstract, please download the attached abstract form and submit to with a short summary of your innovation and preferred mode of presenting.


Registrations for Monash Health AHA Day 2021 will open on Tuesday, 1 June 2021.

As well as individual registration, there will be the opportunity to register as a small group of up to three people or a larger group of up to ten if you are wanting to access the event from the one device/space. We encourage organisations to bring your AHAs together both to network and to enjoy the day as one.

We look forward to seeing many of you online in November.
