  • This year’s conference

The theme for this year’s conference is Reshaping the ‘Care’ in Aged Care. Held in Hobart, this will be a fantastic day of learning for Nurses and Care Workers. The prominent conference is a wonderful opportunity for industry leaders and experts in aged care to share their knowledge with those involved in the provision of healthcare to the elderly. We have a number of keynote speakers in the field of aged care attending to discuss their field of excellence through case studies and research. A few of our keynote speakers can be found below, with the full lineup and program coming soon.
