The Australian & New Zealand Society for Geriatric Medicine Annual Scientific Meeting 2018
This is the premier conference for Geriatric Medicine in the Australasia region. Our meeting theme, “Cutting edge: Optimising the Journey for Older Surgical Patients”, will showcase the new paradigm of peri-operative and surgical care of older adults as we collaborate with our anaesthetic and surgical colleagues. We are delighted to have Doctor Jugdeep Dhesi, clinical lead of the award winning POPS service in Guys and St. Thomas’ Hospital in London and chair of the British Geriatric Society’s Peri-operative Care of Older People Undergoing Surgery Special Interest Group, as our international keynote speaker. Professor Jacqui Close, clinical director of the Falls, Balance, and Injury Research Centre at Neuroscience Research Australia, leading researcher in Falls as well as Peri-operative Medicine, will be our national keynote speaker.
You will also hear the latest scientific research and best clinical practice updates on other geriatric issues such as incontinence, wound management, acute and chronic pain, nutrition, stroke and anticoagulation, onco-geriatrics, de-prescribing, and much more.
