Walk the Talk is a conference that invites dialogue, debate and conversation about ending the abuse of older people wherever it occurs – in aged care residential settings, at home or in the systems and processes that surround us. The issues, ideas and challenges raised during Walk the Talk will encourage all delegates to continue their work, to drive change and to be voices for action.

Walk the Talk will be held across four different rooms within the Wrest Point Convention Centre. The Plenary Room will be the epicentre of the conference and our keynote and invited speakers are set to provoke, entertain and inform our delegates.

Across the plenary and three breakout rooms within the Wrest Point Convention Centre more than 50 abstracts are programmed with presentations and panel discussions that will explore our themes:

  • Walking the Talk, Elder abuse policy, regulation and law

  • Naming and framing elder abuse

  • Seeing and Hearing each other’s voice: Elder Abuse from diverse perspectives

  • Stepping Up Together: What’s working locally, nationally and globally

  • Systemic abuse of older Australians
