Elder abuse affects at least 5% of Australians – that’s more than 175,000 people. By bringing together the community, frontline workers, researchers and academics, policy-makers and politicians, media and other professionals, we will make a change.
The Program Sub-Committee of the 5th National Elder Abuse Conference invites you to submit abstracts for consideration in the program. We are planning the Conference Program so that it will be interactive, innovative, dynamic and stimulating.
Together Making Change 5th National Elder Abuse Conference will have four concurrent themes:
that explore the complexities of elder abuse. The social and cultural changes necessary to prevent elder abuse will happen with long-term, multi-faceted, culture-wide approaches. Academics and researchers, policy makers and government agencies, public servants, service providers, and community workers who have contact with older people, will come together in a vibrant and robust exchange of ideas, solutions and responses to elder abuse.
Elder abuse affects all aspects of people’s lives, and involves many service and support sectors. Abstracts might address more than one theme to reflect the complexity of elder abuse and potential responses. We are particularly interested in innovative, collaborative and evidence-based responses.
