Dementia Centre and HammondCare present:
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.
Full conference (two days)
Day registration (one day)
For delegates with dementia and their carers, there will be two designated serviced lounges, a ‘Chill-Out Room’ and a ‘What’s Happening at the Conference Room,’ to allow you to plan and pace the conference sessions to suit your needs.
“This conference will ask us to consider the truths and, perhaps, the uncomfortable realities and even the lies about choice for older people and others with dementia,” Dr Stephen Judd, Chief Executive of HammondCare.
