About this Event

AGSM @ UNSW Business School and UNSW Built Environment are convening a series of dialogues with thought and practice leaders in health and care to explore the role of people, places, communities and system design in providing the right care in the right place across the life course. You will hear insights from people who have been involved in transforming systems for better outcomes and be part of interactive discussions about designing supportive housing communities, putting people at the centre of health and care, and innovative place-based programming.

Part I of III: Designing supportive housing communities

You should attend if you are involved in creating, managing and leading supportive housing communities, are directing organisations who provide care and services in the community, or are policymakers and decision makers trying to serve people in the least costly and least restrictive environments.

Leaders are looking at how the design of and programming in housing communities has the potential to delay residential care (nursing home) admission, prevent avoidable hospitalisations, and improve mental health and well-being.
