Our first panel: Human Rights in Aged Care, Health and Dementia Services

In keeping with the theme ‘Rock the Boat’, the NEAC 2019 conference program will feature panels of experts, thought leaders and agitators, along with an anticipated 500 delegates from around the country, to share motivations, knowledge and skills to progress the protection of older Australians in dynamic and collaborative formats.

So, don’t expect a talkfest. This is a conference is unapologetically focused on action, outcomes, energy and a fresh approach to drive REAL change by challenging the status quo to eliminate elder abuse with insight, creativity and passion.

And with this thought, we’d like to introduce to you our first panel of the conference: Human Rights in Aged Care, Health and Dementia Services featuring:

Joseph Ibrahim (Monash University)
Kate Swaffer (Dementia Alliance International)
Marcus Riley (BallyCara)
Bethany Brown (Human Rights Watch, USA)
