Expert speakers to challenge current and future dementia practice at IDC2024 

The 2024 International Dementia Conference (IDC) will feature expert international speakers challenging current and future dementia practices.

Hosted by The Dementia Centre, the event aims to push the boundaries of dementia care, research, and positive ageing.

“This year’s theme of “In the Arena” speaks to the issues in the spotlight and the thorny topics we will pick apart, including dementia stereotypes in the media, sexuality in residential aged care and the role of palliative care,” said Angela Raguz, General Manager, The Dementia Centre. 

ABC journalist Leigh Sales will moderate the conference, which targets professionals involved in complex dementia support services.

Early bird registrations are open for the two-day event at the Hilton Sydney on September 5-6.

Speakers include sexologist Dr Nathalie Huitema and BBC medical journalist Dr Michael Mosley, discussing diverse topics such as ageing and consent and the critical role of sleep in dementia risk reduction.

With over 50 papers and 12 international speakers, IDC2024 promises insights from experts worldwide, including Canada, the UK, and Uganda.

The conference, supported by The Dementia Centre at HammondCare, aims to advance dementia research, policy, and care practices.
