Conference Theme

Mission Impossible? This is the question we’ll be addressing with thought leaders from across the globe. Choice is at the core of this International Dementia Conference and we will confront and debate what choice means in every aspect of our lives, clinical decisions and care. ‘Truth and Lies in the age of choice’ will provide a major platform for listening and learning from the international and Australian communities through research, experience and practice in our plenary talks and concurrent sessions, with many opportunities for important networking and engagement.

Speakers

We're excited to announce the first plenary speakers for the 2018 International Dementia Conference. More speakers will be announced soon, including speakers who are living with dementia.
