The food was fantastic and I loved the entertainment at both events, the bands were amazing!
The student conference was excellent and well organised. It was a good chance to hear about my future career pathways and get to know students from other places.
This conference exceeded all my expectations, I have come away invigorated and will recommend (rant) to any MRTs in MZ back in NZ who will listen to come next year!!
Excellent international key note speakers, they were of high quality and the information they provided was topical and engaging. Especially enjoyed presentations by Justin Pigg and Luke Oakden-Raynor.
Absolutely one of the best conferences I have ever been to. I loved that you can chose a talk that interests you out of five or six options. I also liked how some were combined so you get an understanding of the other sides needs and wants
This conference was a healing one for me as I'd not been for over a decade. I caught up with some really beautiful people who shared info from the past that has helped me to a brighter future.
Person centred care and the patient stories were very powerful! I really enjoyed these sessions
