What does the future look like as the population ages into the 21st Century and what are the implications for health care delivery?”
27 May – 3 June 2018
This conference will offer the opportunity to discuss what ageing will look like into the 21st century and how health care services will be delivered. For Nursing, in particular, it will provide a platform to explore how Nursing services across the health care spectrum may alter.
Held aboard the Celebrity Infinity cruise ship, you will experience the majesty of the Hubbard Glacier in Alaska. With its pristine waters, abundant wildlife and breath-taking scenery, you will be spoilt for choice on this once in a lifetime travel adventure.
As a continuing professional development (CPD) activity the content is relevant to nearly all areas of Nursing as the way in which we provide care as the population ages will impact not only aged care services but also acute care, community care, public health, mental health, and education institutions. As a profession, we need to be ready to embrace the changes that will occur.
- Will research and science mitigate the current issues associated with chronic disease?
- Will public health initiatives lead to disease prevention and a healthier older population?
- Will residential aged care be delivered as it is now in an institutional setting?
- Will robotics play a role in care delivery?
- Will technology allow people to remain supported at home?
- Will we reinvent what home means?
- Will the Baby Boomer generation redefine the concept of customer service in the health care industry?
- Will Nursing as a profession be able to adapt and change to meet these expectations?
The Organising Committee warmly invites abstract submissions, for an oral presentation from those clinicians, researchers, and educators wishing to share their knowledge, innovative practice planning, and learnings in the implications of ageing in the 21st Century.
