Oregon Physical Therapy Association 2020 Annual Conference

 March 14, 2020
Holiday Inn Portland Airport - Portland, Oregon

Notifications will be announced in late November

This is the official call for proposals for presentations, posters and platforms for the OPTA 2020 Annual Conference! The committee is looking for presentations that are leading edge practices or current concepts - all specialties are welcome. The more variety the better.  Please also consider presentations that are interactive or focus on clinical application. As in previous conferences, the day will feature one general session, breakout sessions/platforms, structured time for exhibits, posters, and networking, and the semi-annual business meeting.

We are soliciting a variety of one-hour presentations, and they may include single or multiple presenters. Formats may vary from traditional lecture sessions with one or more presenters to short-form case presentations such as complicated patient cases, or brief research platforms.  The committee is open to hearing unique ideas.  If you have content exceeding 1 hour for an educational session you may submit two 1-hour sessions, designating in the title that this is Part 1 or Part 2.   

The OPTA Continuing Education Committee will make the selection from the proposals for inclusion in the programming. Selection criteria include: evidence base and clarity supporting the proposal, probable interest to conference attendees, feasibility, and space/ time constraints. If your presentation is selected, OPTA is unable to reimburse lodging or travel to the conference. If you would like to be considered to present, please complete and submit this form prior to Wednesday, October 9, 2019.


All entries must be received by 5:00 pm on Wednesday, October 9, 2019. Confirmation of inclusion will be provided by mid-November, 2019.
