Independence Australia brings Education to Tasmania’s North West


Based on the success of Independence Australia’s Melbourne and Geelong Education Days, the Tasmanian event titled Pesky Pelvis Problems, was attended by more than 80 delegates eager to participate in a day of knowledge sharing and the chance to discover the latest products from a range of leading suppliers.

Held at Camp Clayton, the day commenced at 8:30am as delegates presented to the registration area to receive their programs and gift bags containing take home materials.

Unique to Tasmania, there were two speaker sessions which ran concurrently on the day. The first session aimed at healthcare professionals was opened by Independence Australia CEO, Peter Turner and followed by an introduction from the event’s gold sponsor TENA. Clinical Nurse Consultant, Anna Brown, then led with her speaker topic, ‘Continence Matters – Living with a Spinal Cord Injury’.

Meanwhile, across the grounds a second session aimed at Disability Support Workers began with an opening address from Independence Australia’s General Manager – Health Solutions, Alex Burstin. Guest speaker and Physiotherapist, Dale Jones then presented ‘It’s all about leaking! Stress and Urge Urinary incontinence.’

Throughout the day, more than seven guest speakers presented to an engaged audience who were also given the opportunity to meet suppliers such as Coloplast, Smith & Nephew and Kimberly-Clark.

The day was a fantastic success with delegates already looking forward to Independence Australia’s next Tasmanian Education Day in 2018.
