This talk by Dr Lisa Mitchell will dwell firstly in that intersection, addressing questions about where, why and how older people die and the role that recognition of dying and Advance Care Planning have to play. We will examine the findings of the Royal Commission into Aged Care Quality and Safety and how ageism impacts on provision of care (including palliative care) for older people.
Ending on a lighter note, we will look at some of the interesting work that is emerging in Geroscience and how we can reimagine ageing in ourselves and others.

The rural context presents a range of unique considerations that impact the experience of ageing and caregiving. These factors are often overlooked in contemporary health and aged care responses, which tend to be developed within metro-centric frameworks. This presentation will explore the idea of rurality as a determinant of health in later life, by discussing the opportunities and systemic challenges that impact ageing and caregiving in rural and regional Australia.

Falls are a leading cause of injury-related death and hospitalisation in older people. As people get older, particularly those living in residential aged care, they are more susceptible to falling over and losing their balance.
At this one-day evidence-based workshop you will learn:
Ø to identify the nature and impact of the problem of falls in older people living in residential aged care
Ø about risk factors and how they impact on falls
Ø about the issues related to falls for people who live in residential aged care
Ø about interventions that have been shown to be effective in preventing falls
Ø how evidence can be applied in residential aged care
Ø how others have dealt with challenging residents
This workshop will give you the opportunity to refresh and expand your knowledge, share your experiences in falls prevention, and will provide you with the latest evidence to help you improve the care you deliver to your residents.
Who should attend:
Ø Residential aged care workers
Ø Allied health, nursing, clinical and medical staff
Ø Cost $465 (including GST) per person
Ø 10% discount for early bird registrations before 14th February 2020
