Health and Wellbeing through Occupation will be hosted by Bournemouth University 3rd and 4th September 2015.


Thank you to everyone who attended, organised or took part in the conference over the two day programme.

The exceptional and inspiring speakers, delegates and presenters keen to debate and immerse themselves in the meaning of occupation, health and wellbeing in a variety of ways and innovative occupation-based sessions all worked to make a successful conference full of stimulating presentations and workshops.

Photos will follow when we have sorted through the many taken throughout the conference so please visit the site again at the end of the month.

Also if you have comments, queries or feedback please email me at occupation@bournemouth.ac.uk and I will share them here on the website.

It was an absolute pleasure to meet you all!

This is a continuing professional development (CPD) event. Certificates of attendance and participation will be available for all delegates.

“I am deeply honoured to be speaking on ‘Occupational Justice’ at the 2015  OSE conference.  I am so looking forward to joining the exciting conversation that is occurring about the theoretical and ethical foundations of occupation science as a discipline and practice.”

Dr Sridhar Venkatapuram
