- Successful collaborations
The 2020 OPEN Symposium will be held as a week-long celebration of our achievements in creating and using evidence during this challenging time.

The event will be held online via Zoom.
Recognising Our Carers Knowledge & Skills
Resi Rocks is an annual opportunity to bring together residential care workers from across the state as a professional group to promote and cultivate a culture of learning and innovation, sharing knowledge, ideas and practice excellence.
The 2019 Resi Rocks was held in June at the MCG - and it was a fantastic day. Check back in early 2020 to find out about our next event for the residential care workforce.
