Mission Impossible? This is the question weâll 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 mean in every aspect of our lives, clinical decisions and care. âTruth and Lies in the age of choiceâ will provide a major platform for listening and learning from the International and Australian communities through research, experience and practice in our plenary talks, concurrent sessions with many opportunities for important networking and engagement.
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.
