International Long-Term Care Conference
Since 1998 we have been organizing the International Long Term Care Conference in Torun – regular meetings bringing together leaders in long-term care field working for the chronically ill, disabled and the elderly.
It is the only scientific event in Poland devoted to long-term care, gathering almost a thousand participants from all over Europe each year. These people are the leaders in their fields of activity, who put much effort in making the society and the government aware of how important is the development of long-term care in the world, especially when we are facing the phenomenon of societies growing old. Thanks to those people more is spoken of providing professional help to those in need. Taking part in the meeting of professionals allows sharing experiences, discussion on the model of long-term care and the standards of provided services in many different countries in Europe. It is possible to follow the examples and use solutions which bring positive effects in the institutions all over Europe.
The conference takes place each year in September. Main partners of the event:
- Polish Society of Gerontology,
- Polish Society of Long-Term Care,
- European Association for Directors and Providers of Long-Term Care Services for the Elderly (E.D.E.).
