About the Seminar Series

Swinburne’s Seminar Series on Ageing has been running for more than five years and is the only one of its kind in Australia. The series attracts presenters who are experts in geropsychology and covers issues relating to late life conditions and treatments. 

The seminars are suitable for clinicians and trainee clinicians but can be understood by a broader range of people including consumers, families and carers. The Seminar Series is free and open to the public.
