Aged Care in a Pandemic World


17-18 November in Wellington

This year's annual conference and Trade Exhibition will be held at the TSB Arena, Shed 6 in Wellington over two days,
Tuesday 17 and Wednesday 18 November.

The NZACA conference theme is Aged Care in a Pandemic World with a focus on COVID-19. We are pleased to be able to offer our members and the wider sector the chance to regroup, debrief, and share learnings on insights during the COVID-19 pandemic.

At this year’s two-day conference we will be exploring what that future may look like. Keynote speakers will discuss how we eliminated COVID-19, what kind of leadership we needed and what the future economy may look like. Rest homes are on the frontline when there is an outbreak such as influenza or a SARS virus.

The workshop sessions on Day 1 and Day 2 will explore what we learned, how we are adapting, and how we can be best prepared to respond to any outbreaks.

We are working to compile a compelling programme and will provide updates as this comes together. Rawdon Christie is the Master of Ceremonies and keynote speakers include Professor Michael Baker, Shamubeel Eaqub and Dr Julie Gerrard, the Prime Minister’s Chief Science Advisor.

The 2020 Wellington conference will run over two days, including a two day trade exhibition. The annual awards will again be a highlight of the conference and will be held on the evening of the first day.

It has been a hugely challenging few months but our conference in November presents a real opportunity to reunite and share experiences from COVID-19 in managing the pandemic.

This conference is brought to you by the NZ Aged Care Association Education Trust.
