4th Asian Conference of Medical and Care Facilities

 The 4th Asian Conference of Medical and Care Facilities was held in Changwon, Korea on Thursday, October 15 and Friday, October 16, 2015, with the main topic being “Seeking hope in post-acute medicine”. The conference was originally scheduled to be held in June, but because of an epidemic of MERS in Korea at the time, it was postponed until later in the year. The event was sponsored by the Korean Association of Medical and Care Facilities.


 This was the first conference in which the China Association of Medical and Care Facilities took part. The conference is the only international conference in Asia whose participants include Japan, which has already become a super-aged society, Korea, which is becoming an aged society, and China, which is on the brink of becoming an aged society, as well as other Asian nations. It provided an opportunity for participating countries to learn what is happening in other countries, to identify issues and strive together for improvement, under the banner of “Post-Acute Medical Care”. The conference was attended by 500 people.
