National Aged Care Forum: Innovations, Initiatives and Evidence for Holistic Care

Join us at our interactive 2021 National Forum where our members, affiliates and others come together to be inspired, challenged and equipped to progress their work focussed on meaning, purpose and connectedness with the older people they are supporting. Following the forum is our biennial celebration dinner where we present our national awards, and people committed to full quality of life can connect.

See below for the draft program.
