Cultural Diversity in Ageing 2012 Conference– Call for Abstracts

The Centre for Cultural Diversity in Ageing is excited to announce that registrations and the submission of abstracts for oral or poster presentations for the Cultural Diversity in Ageing 2012 Conference are now open.

The conference will once again bring together people with a broad range of interests within the aged care sector including industry representatives, providers, practitioners, educators, researchers and consumer advocates to discuss and explore responses and best practice initiatives addressing the needs of our culturally diverse ageing population.

In 2012, the conference theme of ‘Stories to Inspire’ will provide delegates with an opportunity to take a unique and creative approach to cultural diversity in ageing, and encourage people to consider the stories of ethnic communities, aged care services and staff, carers and of course stories of ageing migrants in the community.

The Cultural Diversity in Ageing 2012 Conference will be held at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre from 7-8 June 2012.

Abstract submissions close on Friday 17 February 2012, with accepted authors notified by 2 March 2012. Registrations close Friday 25 May 2012.
