Press Release: 9 April 2021
The National LGBTIQ+ Ageing and Aged Care Conference will be hosted online over three consecutive Fridays in April (16, 23 and 30 April). The conference is being sponsored by the Department of Health and will comprise sessions focused on the findings of the Royal Commission into Aged Care Quality and Safety, human rights and aged care diversity and inclusion.
Aged Care providers are encouraged to attend, particularly given the Royal Commission’s statement that diversity should become core business in aged care.
The conference is the leading event in Australia for aged, health and human service providers to develop their knowledge, skills and practice to meet the needs of LGBTIQ+ elders. It brings together community members, community organisations, aged care providers, health practitioners, researchers, academics, policymakers, advocates, and others interested in improving the mental, physical and emotional wellbeing of LGBTIQ+ elders.
It will be delivered alongside this year’s Health in Difference Conference.
Full details and registration links are available on the Conference Website.
