An overview of the event from the conference website:
Risky Business: Facing up to dementia will consider the future we are shaping for people with dementia. The International Dementia Partnership of The Dementia Centre, HammondCare and the Dementia Services Development Centre, University of Stirling will host this conference at Darling Harbour, Sydney Australia on 28-29 June 2012.
The conference will address Risk from everyone’s point of view; from the risks people with dementia choose to take in their lives, to the challenges of building and delivering services that provide choice and therapeutic benefits, to the legislative and policy context that both seek to protect and deny certain freedoms.
The conference will bring together delegates from across the globe, all with a passion to improve the lives of people with dementia. The conference is for everyone involved in supporting people with dementia and their carers.
Registration is now open.
