Program

The theme for the Home Modifications Conference 2016 is ‘Modifying the Home – BUILDING INCLUSION PRACTICE’. Delegates will have the opportunity to hear about and share information about international best practice in home modifications. 

Conference presenters and exhibitors will showcase innovation in modifying the homes of older people and people with disability, while keynote speakers and panel sessions will address the big issues of how reform policy will impact on the sector, how accreditation will guarantee quality, and what providers will need to do to meet the challenges of working in an individualised, consumer-driven service market.

The conference will be an opportunity to meet with providers from across the country as well as with administrators, suppliers and leading academics. Delegates will be able to take stock of the health of the sector in Australia and internationally, and discuss how services will need to adapt to the changes still occuring in disability and aged care. Presentations will deal with core challenges of an increasingly diverse market, and exhibitors will demonstrate the application of new technology to increase the functional capacity of individuals in their home. 

The Program at this Conference will feature key-note lectures, skills workshops, policy seminars, academic sessions and panel discussions.
