    Better Practice 2018

    Better Practice 2018 banner

    In 2018, we’re holding one national conference and a series of state-based events to better respond to emerging issues in the sector.

    This year we have some exciting additions to the conference program, with the inclusion of a Pre-Conference workshop, a Better Practice Awards dinner to announce and recognise the winners and Digital Poster displays over the two days. 

    Our conference theme Living the life I choose – Safety, health and wellbeing takes us to the heart of the question:  ‘how do we meaningfully engage and partner with consumers in shaping the future of aged care?’ To achieve our vision for the future – one that genuinely does support ‘Living the life I choose’ – requires all of us to take time to think about possibilities and explore options that can deliver on this vision. 

    Day 1 Program

    The first day of our conference program will explore the quality journey and how aged care services have partnered with consumers to meet their needs and preferences; reflect on lessons learnt; discuss key drivers shaping the aged care future and the process of proactively managing change in this environment.

    Day 2 Program

    On day two we will focus on the quality journey through the new aged care standards and regulatory framework as a platform for service innovation. We will explore innovative models that promote consumer’s independence, function and enjoyment.

    Registrations will open in May 2018 and early bird registrations will be available until Friday, 13 July 2018. Discounts will also be available for groups of five (5) or more. Book early to save!

    The conference will be held at the heritage listed Sofitel Sydney Wentworth, 61-101 Phillip Street Sydney NSW 2000. For further information on the hotel, including parking options and directions, or to book accommodation go to the Sofitel Sydney Wentworth website or call (02) 9228 9188.
