7th National Elder Abuse Conference

The 7th National Elder Abuse Conference will take place on 14-15 February 2022 and brings together individuals and organisations across sectors that connect with older people to discuss, debate and learn.

Hosted by COTA Tasmania and Elder Abuse Action Australia (EAAA).

2022’s conference will be offering both a face to face program and an online program.

The two-day hybrid conference (14-15 February 2022) will intersperse plenaries featuring eminent national and international experts with concurrent presentations by delegates. We value peer-to-peer learning experiences and put a premium on diversity. Social activities will provide many opportunities for networking, while a post-conference workshop on 16 February will invite delegates to share and consolidate their responses to elder abuse, rights and ageism issues raised during the conference. 

The goal for NEAC 2022 is that people will leave the conference re-energised to continue advocating for older Australians and driving long-term change.

Program Themes

The conference program will explore the following themes:  

  • Walking the talk: Elder abuse policy, regulation and law 
  • Seeing and hearing each other's voice: Elder abuse from diverse perspectives
  • Systemic abuse of older Australians
  • Naming and framing elder abuse 
  • Stepping up together: What’s working locally, nationally and globally? 

Date: 14-15 February 2022
Location: Hobart
