IAAHS/SAS Long Term Care Webcast: Singapore and Australia - Thu 14 DEC 2017

Joint IAAHS and SAS Webinar: Global Perspectives on Long-Term Care - Singapore and Australia


Registration is now open!


Join us on Thursday 14 December 2017

8:00am - 9:30am GMT (4:00pm - 5:30pm Singapore time)


Hosted by the International Actuarial Association Health Section (IAAHS) and the Singapore Actuarial Society (SAS), this will be the last webinar of year in the IAAHS "Global Perspectives on Long-Term Care" series. The webinar will also be simultaneously conducted as a live forum for SAS members (who otherwise have the option of registering for the online webcast).

Worldwide demand for Long-Term Care (LTC) is expected to increase significantly in the coming decades because of longevity increases and advances in technologies and treatment. Countries around the world will need to develop more comprehensive strategies to address challenges associated not only with financing LTC but also with delivering services and support and meeting the needs of both beneficiaries and providers/caregivers.
Join us for this international webcast that will feature a discussion about some of the global challenges facing LTC, including delivery methods, financing, and program design, as well as the role actuaries play in identifying trends and potential solutions to each of these challenges.

Presenters will explore some of the following perspectives on LTC from Singapore and Australia:

Singapore, Choo Oi San will introduce the history of establishing ElderShield in Singapore, and how it is operated. She will also discuss the role of actuaries in ElderShield, and share us with the recent updates on the ElderShield review in Singapore.

Australia, Sarah Johnsontalk will start with the history to establishing a National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) in Australia.
