As our healthcare colleagues are currently busy with precautionary measures in view of the 2019 Novel Coronavirus situation, we have decided to postpone the Community Care Conference 2020 slated for 13 to 15 February.
We look forward to running this event in the later part of the year and will be rolling forward all registration details and payment made. The committee will update you once details of the date and venue are confirmed. Registered participants will be re-confirmed closer to the conference date with an opportunity to swap delegates names. Administrative notes on how to do this will also be provided. In the meantime, if you have any queries do feel free to reach out to email@example.com
We thank you for your support and look forward to providing details of the conference in the coming months.
Aligned with the national thrusts of moving beyond hospital to community, and beyond healthcare to health, the Community Care sector has become a vital component of Singapore’s health system. These shifts require “out of the box” thinking and an interdisciplinary approach to the concepts of elderhood and Community Care. As the focus is less on managing diseases but more on maintaining physical, mental, and social health, practitioners and policymakers must now integrate geriatrics with gerontological insights when planning services and interventions. This new paradigm is being presented for the first time in this forthcoming Community Care Conference (CCC2020).
The scientific programme has been carefully curated to elicit fresh views and critique from international thought leaders and practitioners on Singapore’s efforts in helping our seniors prepare for their third and fourth ages through community engagement, infrastructure planning, and refinement of care models. We hope that the conversations at this conference would help seed ideas and inspire innovations within the health and social ecosystems.
