2018 International Dementia Conference: Mission Impossible? Truth & Lies in the Age of Choice

Event Description

Choice is the central theme of the 2018 conference. The conference brings together global thinking on important issues as we seek to understand what is at the heart of what we do. Consumer directed care, change and competition in the open market of Australia’s home care, specialist dementia care units and palliative care are just some of the issues that will be considered and debated.

There will be a range of plenary speakers, including Professor Sheena S. Iyengar (USA), inaugural S.T. Lee Professor of Business in the Columbia Business School, Jane Halton (Australia), former Secretary of the Australian Department of Finance, and Baroness Ilora Finlay of Llanda (Wales), Professor of Palliative Medicine at Cardiff University.
