‘Health, justice and ageing’ invites practitioners, researchers, service providers, policy-makers and community members to join us in a critical discussion about supporting the health, justice and dignity of people as they age. Discussion will explore some of the social and systemic factors that determine vulnerability among older people, such as:

  • Wealth inequity
  • Changes in cognitive and physical abilities
  • Capacity and capability within institutions and services
  • Difficulty navigating systems
  • Role of advisors
  • Loneliness and isolation
  • Ageism and discrimination

Facilitated by Dr Ursula King, the seminar will feature an international keynote delivered by Liz Tobin-Tyler, Assistant Professor of Family Medicine and Health Services, Policy and Practice at Brown University, marking the release of new insights into medical-legal partnerships between healthcare providers and legal professionals to address elder care in the USA. Consumer insights will be featured alongside the participation of The Hon Kay Patterson, Age Discrimination Commissioner; Associate Professor Nola Ries, University of Technology Sydney; Dr Tessa Boyd-Caine, CEO, Health Justice Australia
