Event Description

Full Description:
The economic implications of Australia’s ageing population are challenging. Join fellow colleagues, planners, policymakers and academics for this knowledge sharing workshop to explore the economics of ageing and longevity.

More than 15% of the population is aged 65 and over, and in 2016-17 the Australian Government spent more than $17 billion on aged care, representing an increase of 21% during the previous five years (AIHW 2017).

At this workshop, you will hear from leading economics experts who will share their latest research and experiences into timely issues including:

- how to predict future dementia risk to ensure there will be efficient allocation of health
and social care resources
- how health shocks affect well-being
- how preventative measures such as physical activity can reduce cognitive decline
- how longitudinal data can be applied to economics of ageing issues
- how to ensure sustainable data collection into the future.
