The National Initiative for the Care of the Elderly (NICE) hosts the 2016 Annual NICE Knowledge Exchange, a highly anticipated conference on aging that is the cornerstone of the knowledge transfer strategy at NICE. The conference provides a unique opportunity for members of the community, clinicians, academics, students, and business leaders to come together to exchange new ideas, introduce insights and innovations, and promote tangible solutions to help address issues facing aging populations.
The theme of this year's conference is Coming of Age. For the first time in history, Canadian seniors outnumber their younger counterparts. This new demographic reality should be met with hope and optimism, as older adults in Canada are living longer, are healthier and wealthier. Reaching this milestone is also an opportunity to adopt changes in practices and policies to meet the transforming needs of today's seniors. The 2016 Annual NICE Knowledge Exchange (ANKE2016) will provide a platform for learning about and responding to policy and practice needs of a new age of older adults, and ensuring that equal citizenship rights are upheld.
