We’re thrilled to announce that our 2018 conference, Conversations About Care, will feature advocate Susan Alberti AC and activist Julie McCrossin.

The event will offer new insights into how we can work together to create better health outcomes for the communities we serve. Suitable for consumers, carers and health professionals, the event will create a space for collaboration and conversation.

Julie McCrossin and Susan Alberti AC will be joined by a diverse range of consumers and health professionals from across Australia.

Conversations About Care will be held at iconic Abbotsford Convent. The historic site, which has recently been given Australia’s highest level of heritage recognition, is located just 4km from Melbourne’s CBD.
