Conference offers multidisciplinary focus on ageing.
Conference organiser Sally Keeling says interest continues to grow, with the programme recently expanding to five concurrent sessions each day to allow all contributions to be in eluded. Participants are from many perspectives, reflecting the breadth and scope of the association and its multidisciplinary group of practitioners.
Keynote speakers include experts from New Zealand, Australia and the United Kingdom. Nurse practitioner in aged primary health care, Michal Boyd, from Auckland, will give a plenary session entitled "Care of frail older adults: a role for gerontology nurse practitioners". Other nurses leading concurrent sessions include Stephen Neville (Massey University, Albany) discussing sexual concerns for older men; Katrina Lenzie-Smith (Auckland University) discussing nurses' stress levels and coping styles; Tony Lawson (Auckland University) on the role of the clinical nurse specialist in discharge follow-up; Daphne Manderson (Christchurch Polytechnic Institute of Technology) on aggression and reporting practices in residential care; Lorraine Ritchie (Wellington research nurse) on coping and not coping with growing old: examples from New Zealand literature for use in nurse education; and Kathy Peri (Auckland gerontology nurse specialist) on her promoting independent living study.
