The APS Psychology and Ageing National Conference - Empowering older adults through psychology

6 - 7 October 2017, University of Queensland

The Psychology & Ageing Interest Group is bringing together psychologists and other health professionals to discuss practice research and education in a biennial conference. This year the conference will be held at the University of Queensland. We are fortunate to have Professor Peter Lichtenberg presenting his work on balancing autonomy and protection for older adults.

We look forward to you seeing you there.

The following suggestions are offered with regards accommodation within easy public transport access to the conference venue:

Transport and Travel

Translink is a useful site (and there is an app also available) for exploring public transport options.

APS Practice Certificate in Services for Older Adults

The APS Institute, with extensive curriculum input from the APS Psychology and Ageing Interest Group (PAIG), has developed an APS Practice Certificate in Services for Older Adults, which is available fully in the online course mode. The content of this practice certificate has been selected and assembled to enable psychologists and other allied health professionals to gain further knowledge of, and insight into, normal and pathological ageing, and to up skill practitioners in providing services for older adults. The Practice Certificate consists of four separate online courses that account for a total of 32 hours of CPD. Courses can also be selected and taken individually. In addition to receiving a certificate of completion for each course completed successfully, enrolees who successfully complete all four courses receive the APS Practice Certificate in Services for Older Adults to acknowledge their completion of this extended program of training.
