Conference October 2, 2015 National Wine Centre, Adelaide, South Australia
Have you ever stopped to think about what dignity means to you? And then reflected on how we ensure we are providing dignity to those we care for?
Dignity in Care Australia was launched in 2011 by a small team of passionate health professionals committed to changing the way we think about care. Today we have over 1,000 Dignity in Care Champions from aged and dementia care, disability, community, education, corrections and many more organisations.
Each year, through our annual conference we lead a program to challenge and inform the community – doctors, nurses, care workers, allied health – all take part in this exciting event where the goal is to take away new strategies, new ideas to promote dignity in care.
We look forward to you joining us at this exciting and innovative event – a great opportunity to learn, be engaged and meet with other colleagues to take up the challenge of Dignity in Care.

Be part of the challenge, be part of the change – join us at the Dignity in Care Australia National Conference.
Dignity: it’s all about how you feel, think and behave in relation to yourself and others. The pleasure in sharing a meal, the memory of an old song, the touch of a hand on yours – and how we share those experiences with those around us.
Location: National Wine Centre Adelaide, Corner of Botanic & Hackney Roads, Adelaide SA 5000
