Planning for the NZHHA 2011 Conference is well underway. The Conference will be held in Wellington (James Cook Grand Chancellor) fom 3-5 August 2011. Hon Tony Ryall, Minister of Health, will open the conference and also host a function in the Parliamentary legislative chamber. The programme is being developed, and speakers being sourced. We are very pleased that Gerald Pilkington will be one of the keynote speakers. Gerald works for the UK Department of Health and has developed re-ablement packages - these are short term packages of care designed to maximise users long-term independence, choice and quality of life, and to appropriately minimise ongoing support required.
A conference website is now up and running at www.hcha.org.nz/conference. Registrations open from 1 March 2011
