Japan's Ageing Society - The Healthcare Implications of Ageing Populations
Guest Speaker: Dr Trevor Ryan, University of Canberra
Dr Trevor Ryan is an Assistant Professor in the School of Law & Justice at the University of Canberra. He is an expert on legal and welfare systems in Japan and has a special interest in the healthcare implications of ageing populations.
Trevor will share insights on Japanese health system and legal responses to a rapidly ageing population, including the special needs of people with dementia. Our Q&A session will focus on what lessons Australian health and social systems can learn from Japan, especially in light of current NSW and Commonwealth government
inquiries on elder abuse.
The University of Newcastle acknowledges the traditional custodians of the lands within our footprint areas: Awabakal, Darkinjung, Biripai, Worimi, Wonnarua, and Eora Nations. We also pay respect to the wisdom of our Elders past and present.
