Navigating the Reform Journey in Aged Care


We welcome you to join us for New Zealand's largest aged care conference and exhibition in Auckland on Tuesday, 19 and Wednesday, 20 October 2021.

The theme for this year's conference is Navigating the Reform Journey in Aged Care and we are working quickly to compile a compelling programme with speakers’ expert in the various areas of reform facing the aged residential care sector. Plenary topics will include the Health System Reform, the Health and Disability Services Standards Review, Immigration, the Aged Care Commissioner, the Australian Royal Commission into Aged Care, and Pay Parity. Our team is in the process of confirming these speakers, along with respected authorities in the areas of health, economics, and banking. We look forward to sharing a more detailed programme with you in the coming weeks.

Once again, breakout workshop sessions will be held on both days of conference, allowing delegates the opportunity for more in-depth group discussion and collaboration.
