Ageing with Health and Dignity: Implications for Public Policy, Service Delivery, Workforce, Technology and Financing


The Hong Kong Polytechnic University (PolyU)-affiliated College of Professional and Continuing Education (CPCE), together with its educational units of School of Professional Education and Executive Development (SPEED) and Hong Kong Community College (HKCC), held the CPCE Health Conference 2020 at PolyU Hung Hom Bay Campus on 13 January 2020. The Conference, held for the fifth consecutive year, was organised in collaboration with Hong Kong College of Community Health Practitioners, Hong Kong College of Health Service Executives, and Hong Kong College of Nursing and Health Care Management.


Themed “Ageing with Health and Dignity: Implications for Public Policy, Service Delivery, Workforce, Technology and Financing”, the Conference aimed to solicit solutions to ageing from a multidisciplinary perspective. The Conference comprised 7 keynote sessions, 3 plenary sessions, 6 parallel sessions with 31 presentations and 10 poster presentations, which generated fruitful dialogues as well as possible future collaborations among over 300 delegates and guest speakers in attendance. Academics and practitioners from near and far, including Australia, Canada, the Chinese mainland, Hong Kong, Japan, Macau, Malaysia, South Korea, Thailand, and the United States of America, were invited to deliver speeches that provided international insights from practices in different countries around this year’s theme.

This year, the Conference was partially supported by a grant from the Research Grants Council to establish the Centre for Ageing and Healthcare Management Research (CAHMR) under SPEED. SPEED aims to develop CAHMR into a centre of excellence by leveraging the expertise and interests among faculty members, connecting them from a diverse array of disciplines and cultivating their scholarship in the realms of healthcare, health services management, finance, information technology, data science, public policy, marketing and hospitality management.
