Particular emphasis will be placed on the residential component and community space as levers to facilitate the transition from hospital to the community, with implications for policy regarding continuity of care.

Distinguished national experts in the area will be joined by international specialists who will contribute to a better understanding of the challenges we face in affirming a more equitable, cohesive, and inclusive society for all ages.
