Care About Our Future
Global Symposium for Sustainable Care and Support
Our conference theme, Care about Our Future: global symposium for sustainable care and support, invites submissions that embrace a future perspective and feature thought leadership, innovative ideas, research, projects and/or programmes that address specific needs in supported housing, homecare, residential and nursing care and support, backed by professionally documented practical experience and/or research findings.
