Population Ageing and Health Care Needs – policy responses to demographic changes

Join us for the first Fast Track Briefing for the year in which an early career professional presents on one of their topics of expertise. A light lunch will be served from 12.15pm.  There is no charge for this event which is supported by Griffith University.  However, prior booking is essential.

The presenter is Dr Suzanne Bonner, Griffith University, who will discuss policy responses to the changing health care needs of an ageing population. 

As the ageing population in Australia and other developed economies continues to grow, governments and policymakers have identified many challenges. Discussion has focused on the increased demand for health care, identifying issues around cost and availability. The changing construct of families has exacerbated this issue as fewer older people have family members available to care for them. In this session, Dr Bonner will discuss key issues including: the sandwich generation; future expectations of the healthcare system; promotion of active intervention across the lifespan; and alternative models for healthcare delivery.
