The Organising Committee is excited to announce the conference program overview. This will continue to be updated as planning progresses and sessions are finalised.
Please note: the conference program is subject to change at the discretion of the Organising Committee.
New for 2021, we are excited to announce that the 2021 ASM will be delivered in hybrid format, combining a mix of in-person attendance with virtual and on-demand session content. We want to still offer the option for face-to-face networking and conference attendance for those based locally, or who wish to travel to Melbourne but also recognise the need to offer a complete level of flexibility for other delegates. In-person attendees will have access to the online program content during and after the event as well, and there will be opportunities for online Q&A, speaker session voting engagement and panel discussion.
Our conference theme ‘20/20 Hindsight: Vision for the Future’ will provide a platform to reflect on the lessons from 2020 and an opportunity look forward to the future with new eyes. There will be updates on dementia and delirium along with sessions on the interface between geriatric medicine and other specialities. We will be exploring topical issues such as the residential aged care Covid-19 response, the Royal Commission into Aged Care Quality and Safety and the implementation of Voluntary Assisted Dying legislation in Victoria amongst other thought-provoking topics.
