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 not your usual conference. This is a conference 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:
The discussions from this panel regarding the changes required to promote, safeguard and support the rights of older people in aged care, health and dementia care are sure to Turn the Tables!!
EAAA Community Hub will be at NEAC 2019
