September 7, 2017 @ 9:00 am - 10:00 am
Please join us for the latest in our series of seminars detailing components of the Department of Health’s report, Incidence and Cost of Injury in Western Australia 2012.
This briefing will provide an expert analysis of the impact of injuries sustained by older adults in WA, including health sector costs, long-term care costs, loss of paid productivity and loss of quality of life. Keynote presentations will be delivered from the perspectives of research, policy and practice, with a focus on how the data can be understood and applied to inform policy and program development, and strategies available to work with older adults. The briefing will also be available via video conference (video conference information will be sent in the confirmation email).
