OtherAustralian Association of Gerontology (NSW Division) (AAG) and Aged & Community Services of NSW & ACT (ACS) are hosting the 2016 Regional Conference at the Dubbo RSL Club on Thursday 7 and Friday 8 April, 2016. Building on our previous joint conference, AAG and ACS’s 2016 regional event Embracing the Future, encourages participants to explore the opportunities emerging for older people, service providers and researchers, as the ageing sector is transformed. As we continue down the path of reforming the sector, we are seeing a shift in the landscape – increasing choice and control for older people; mergers, partnerships and new business models; international experiences being analysed and learnings from the disability and health sectors informing our progress. Embracing the Future allows for new ways of thinking, innovative approaches to service delivery and opportunities to think outside the box. AAG and ACS have come together to explore these issues, bringing providers, researchers and policy makers together to showcase what is new and possible in our transforming sector. The conference will be of interest to health and aged care practitioners, researchers, community care providers, policy makers and planners and anyone interested in current and emerging issues in ageing.
