Event description

Description

‘Loneliness epidemic’ set to become a public health crisis

The evidence is overwhelming: a lonely person is significantly more likely to suffer an early death than someone who is not lonely, by anywhere from 30% to 60%. A long list of additional, and ongoing, health problems is now part of the loneliness epidemiology. Forecasts indicate the problem will become more critical, and more taxing on health resources, than smoking or obesity.

Loneliness can take hold, any where, any place - where ever there are people. This includes older people in retirement communities and rest homes and hospitals.

Looking after the health and wellbeing of older people in your care is a nurse’s over-arching responsibility. So when a particular ‘problem’ erupts into a full-blown crisis people at the front line of protection, such as nurses, will need to be ready.

Are you ready? And is the sector? The 2018 Gerontology Nursing Conference is a call to action in making nurses aware of the challenges that lie ahead as well as giving you the tools to make a difference.

It is designed to help professionals identify, understand and then deal with this complex problem and the risks it poses for older people – whether in residential aged care settings or in the wider community. The focus will be on knowledge sharing and providing practical pathways to prepare people for what lies ahead.

Join us for an action packed day with Clinical Psychologist, Nigel Latta, Dr Michal Boyd, Professor Merryn Gott and more and earn CPE towards your annual Practicing Certificate requirements.

We are most grateful for the support of our 2018 sponsors and donors.
