One of the primary roles of a professional association is to ensure that practicing professionals are continually updating knowledge and skills to ensure that their practice is embracing current trends.
Tracey Beck and Dr Tien K Khoo
"Recreational Therapists often play a significant role in healthcare - the practice unifies various allied health themes with a focus on humanistic application to benefit the client. There is a huge potential in Recreational Therapy as a discipline both locally and abroad. I hope the profession continues to grow and establish itself as a significant allied health profession with further evidence-based practice. Often, a strong foundation in principles, practice and dynamic research activities can help form pillars of the profession. I believe much of this is already seen from the interest and activities illustrated in the recent conference."
