Professor Dawn Brooker Masterclass Tour 2020

Dementia Australia is delighted that Professor Dawn Brooker has agreed to be both a keynote speaker for the Dementia Australia National Symposium as well as run a masterclass tour in five capital cities across the country.


  • Sydney – Rydges Sydney Central – Wednesday 25 March 2020
  • Brisbane – Park Regis – Thursday 26 March 2020
  • Melbourne – Rendezvous Hotel – Monday 30 March 2020
  • Adelaide – Mercure Hotel – Tuesday 31 March 2020
  • Perth – IBIS Hotel – Wednesday 1 April 2020

In 2019 Prof Brooker won the Journal of Dementia Care’s Lifetime Achievement Award for her work in improving person-centred care for people living with dementia.

Beginning as a clinical psychologist Dawn went on to develop the internationally recognised VIPS Framework. The ‘VIPS’ framework developed by Dawn sums up the four key elements in Kitwood’s philosophy of person-centred care for people living with dementia as: Values, Individualised approach, Perspective of the person living with dementia and Social environment. There are six indicators for each element.

These practical masterclasses are specifically run for managers and healthcare professionals responsible for the implementation of the new Aged Care Quality Standards.

At a time when the Aged Care Safety and Quality Royal Commission has highlighted the need for sector transformation, the Dawn Brooker Masterclass will be a must-attend workshop for leaders in the sector.

A maximum of 60 places per masterclass will be made available. The limited numbers are to ensure an interactive environment and opportunity for meaningful dialogue regarding the process of implementation.

The masterclass tour is proudly supported by Dementia Australia Support.
