Papers sought for 2018 International Dementia Conference
Submissions for papers and poster presentations for the 2018 International Dementia Conference are now being invited.
A/Prof Colm Cunningham, Director of HammondCare's Dementia Centre, said the theme of "Mission Impossible? Truth and Lies in the Age of Choice" would provide an opportunity for a broad and provocative range of presentations.
HammondCare's International Dementia Conference has always sought to challenge, inform and inspire, and next year's conference is no different he said.
Presenters and participants all have a common goal to improve the lives of people living with dementia and those who care for them. The central theme, regarding choice and decision making, will be the driving platform for the conference and we hope to confront and debate what choices mean for people with dementia in every aspect of life, and critically consider what the truth of choice really means.
Abstracts from those working in scientific, clinical and psychosocial research are welcome along with submissions around practice and innovation in the delivery of services.
Papers and contributions from people with dementia and carers who have unique perspectives are particularly encouraged.
- Oral Presentations: A 2 minute video clip is requested to be uploaded as part of your submission containing a brief introduction to the presenter and the abstract. This submission platform will be in addition to a written text.
- E-Posters: To enhance the delegate experience of this important information we are pleased to provide an E-Poster platform. All selected submissions will then be requested in electronic pdf, or an interactive PowerPoint slide.
The International Dementia Conference will take place on 7-8 June 2018 in Sydney
