About the Conference

“How can our elders live well and eventually die well?” is a question that people working in a compassionate sector like the aged care industry often ask themselves. In the face of a global silver tsunami, ensuring quality of ageing life for elders with escalating health complexities and needs, has become a national and international matter.

The Australian government have begun to address the issue of a growing ageing population by introducing and strongly advocating Palliative Care, a life enhancing care into the aged care system. However, such advocacy was countered with negative connotation as many elders and aged care providers still perceive Palliative Care as a form of care strictly for terminally ill patients. Nevertheless, research has proven that Palliative Care, a comfort oriented, supportive and symptom management care can ensure a better quality of life for people, especially our elders who are entering old age, facing receding physical and mental capability. So how exactly can we, as aged care providers ensure palliative care and aged care to go hand in hand with the ultimate aim to improve the overall quality of life for our senior citizens?

To embrace such life transforming care practice, Clariden Global welcome you to the Palliative & Aged Care Forum: Re-Thinking and Improving End-of-life & Ageing Care for Senior Citizens, a single platform dedicated to providing trending information on critical issues and challenges in the Palliative and Aged Care in Australia that have been concerning the public. This is an event that is carefully researched and crafted with the most desired insights in the palliative and aged care industry. We bring together top visionary evangelists from the palliative and aged care sector to maximize your conference experience with insightful keynote sessions and real case studies in empowering you with highly endorsed, award winning and evidence based practices to enhance your resilience in various critical aged care situations.
