The Ontario Long Term Care Association (OLTCA) in partnership with the Global Ageing Network are hosting the leading international event for professionals and consumers of long-term care and aging services. Transforming Aging Together will build on Ontario Long Term Care Association’s Fall conference, This is Long Term Care, and the Global Ageing Network’s Biennial international conference, to profile emerging research and innovation and successful quality initiatives in a unique forum dedicated to shared learning and professional networking.

We are seeking sessions that will deliver big ideas, new models, novel technologies, emerging trends, and revolutionary processes that demonstrate compelling leadership for aged care practice and operations. Conference delegates should expect to participate in interactive sessions, and gain both inspirational ideas and practical tools, as well as forge new partnerships, both locally and abroad.

This is Long Term Care 2019: Transforming Aging Together provides an unparalleled opportunity to hear about cutting edge ideas from around the world, as well as existing best practice programs that have tools, resources, policies and procedures which can influence, impact or initiate change across borders.

The Ontario Long Term Care Association and the Global Ageing Network invite you to submit your abstract to This is Long Term Care 2019 conference.

This year applicants can apply to present in one of three different formats:
