ExSitu Launch & Panel - "Protecting values and identity as we age - what you need to know".

ExSitu Launch

Join the ExSitu team for their launch in Tamworth with the support of the UNE SMART Region Incubator. After winning RISE 2019, the ExSitu founders Rebecca and April, decided it would make perfect sense to come back to the region in 2020 to launch their incredible platform.

Hear about their platform, their plans for the workshop (taking place the following day) and hear from an incredible panel of passionate experts leading the charge to ensure all people can help communicate their core values as they age.

Our Panel

Professor Rod McClure, Dean – Faculty of Medicine and Health University of New England

Professor McClure has clinical experience in emergency medicine, a PhD in injury epidemiology, specialist training in public health medicine, director roles of research institutes, and management experience in the US Centres for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). This has been enhanced by a number of opportunities over the years that broadened his perspective on Medical practice. Rod is now focused on facilitating education, research and practice opportunities for students, colleagues, and communities.

Professor Christine Jorm, Director - New South Wales Regional Health Partners

Professor Christine Jorm is the Director of NSW Regional Health Partners, an NHMRC accredited Centre for Innovation in Regional Health. The role of the Centre is to accelerate the translation of research into practice to improve regional and rural health. The Centre is supported by its eight partners (HNELHD, CCLHD, MNCLHD, Calvary Mater, UON, UNE, HMRI), the NSW Ministry of Health and the Medical Research Future Fund.

Nicole Turnbull, Principal Solicitor - Turnbull Legal Solutions

Nicole’s experience has predominantly been in the areas of Family Law, Wills/Estates, Conveyancing and Criminal Law. Practising in these areas has meant Nicole has developed a keen sense of understanding her clients, connecting with her clients in their time of need and explaining the relevant law in a way that is easy to digest. Nicole appreciates that when client’s seek out a Lawyer for advice in these specialised areas, it is during a time in their lives when they need more support and guidance than simply advice on the relevant law.

Tia Christenson, Carer speaking from personal experience

Tia is a full time working mum and wife who also cares for her mum, Deb. As a result of Deb’s chronic illnesses, both Tia and her younger sister have held power of attorney and enduring guardianship for their mother since their early twenties.

In 2019 Deb was in ICU with pneumonia, and a decision had to be made about whether or not to “switch the machine off”. Deb battled through and survived, and as a result Tia is passionate about the importance of early conversations.

Sophie Bailey, Dementia Consultant at the Dementia Centre - HammondCare

Sophie is a registered Nurse, Dementia Consultant and a Mum working across the New England and North West. After a career in aged care, Sophie is a great advocate for conversations as we age, particularly ensuring decisions are made that protect ones values and identity.

About ExSitu

ExSitu have established themselves from within the aged care sector. They have built a reflective interactive platform to help people communicate their core values. The platform translates this information into clinical documents such as Advance Care Plans, to allow a person’s care to be guided by their values, rather than just their clinical needs. Last year ExSitu won the national award for improving consumer choice in aged care for their work across the East coast, and they are excited to be launching in the New England area.

Launch and Workshop

Join the ExSitu team and SRI at UNE Tamworth for the launch and panel on Tuesday 3 March from 6-8pm and then the Ex-Situ workshop on Wednesday 4 March from 9am to 12pm (see workshop links).

Who should attend?

We encourage allied health professionals, legal and medical professionals, health, disability and aged care providers, financial planners, carers or anyone who wants to be prepared for the future; to join us for this event.
