- Health and wellness in residential aged care
- Wellness centres in aged care
- Allied health professionals and their role in restorative care
- Pastoral and spiritual care
- Social connection

The Active Ageing Conference consists of presentations, panel discussions and hands-on workshops, where the aim is to share the latest evidence on enabling approaches and strategies to implement them.
The highly successful inaugural event in 2015 brought together researchers, providers and allied health professionals to discuss the wellness approaches.
The Active Ageing Conference takes place on 4 August 2016 at the Swissotel Sydney. The conference is hosted by Australian Ageing Agenda and Community Care Review, and organised by Interpoint Events.
