Risky Business 2 – The International Dementia Conference
June 26-27, 2014 Sydney, Australia
How do we support people with dementia to live their lives well?
Are we really delivering care that is personal to the person with dementia and their carer?
What changes did you make after Risky Business 2012?
Risky Business 2 – this time it's personal! will consider the opportunities and challenges confronting care for people with dementia. Inappropriate use of anti-psychotic medication, delivering the right hospital care alongside the changes needed in community, day and residential services are some of the issues that will be considered during this three day event.
The International Dementia Conference will feature highly regarded international and national keynote speakers, numerous invited speakers, academic and research papers, case studies, workshops and poster presentations . This will be an opportunity like no other to network and engage with industry leaders and experts from all over the world. As well as an international standard conference, a major component of the event will be the extensive Trade Exhibition that will showcase the best of what the industry has to offer. Leading exhibitors from around the globe will display products, services and innovations in this world standard exhibition. In addition to the delegates, it is anticipated that many visitors will attend the free exhibition.
New to this conference, we'll begin in the afternoon of the 25th July with a free event open to the public. Themed as an afternoon tea and information event, it will include presentations on the latest thinking on dementia and provide an opportunity for discussion and support to carers and people with dementia. Presentations and the afternoon tea will take place in the heart of the exhibition. Exhibitors will have the opportunity to share their products and services with the wider public, and equip them with information
The conference is for everyone involved in supporting people with dementia or developing their expertise in the field.
