Brave New World

    Change is in the air. Join us in Sydney, Australia at the 2022 International Dementia Conference and help shape the future of dementia care.

    Experts from across the globe in health and aged care, including those with lived experience, will share the latest in research practice and innovation - leading the change in the delivery of care services.

    IDC2022 will challenge the way we think about complex dementia, palliative care and positive ageing as we come together to look forward with hope and create positive change.

    We have been through the toughest times and now is the moment to Be Brave and stand with people with dementia in building a better future.

    Early Bird Registrations open on 1 June. For latest updates and IDC2022 news, subscribe to our newsletter.
