On behalf of the local organising committee, we are very excited to invite you to the 2020 Annual Scientific Meeting of the Australian and New Zealand Society of Geriatric Medicine, on 27th - 29th May at the Sofitel Melbourne on Collins.
"Vision for the future" is an opportunity to look at the emerging themes in Geriatric Medicine and how these will impact on the care of the older person into the future.
The scientific programme will feature updates in dementia and delirium, along with topical issues such as the new Voluntary Assisted Dying legislation in Victoria and the Australian Royal Commission into Aged Care Quality and Safety. We will explore what's new in technology and how it relates to the care of older people as well as emerging techniques in medical education.
We are delighted to introduce our international keynote speaker, Professor Shaun O'Keeffe, a Consultant Geriatrician and Honorary Personal Professor of Medicine in Galway University Hospitals (Ireland). Professor O’Keeffe brings a broad expertise in Geriatric Medicine with interests in cognitive decline, delirium and ethical issues in the care of the older person, in particular how we manage risk in the residential aged care sector.
We are also thrilled to announce our Australasian keynote speaker is Professor Andrea Maier, the Divisional Director of Medicine and Community Care at the Royal Melbourne Hospital and Professor of Medicine and Aged Care at the University of Melbourne. Professor Maier is an international leader in biogerontology research with a passion for unraveling ageing mechanisms and the interaction of ageing and age-related diseases.
We are sure you will find the program both stimulating and inspiring.
We look forward to seeing you in Melbourne!
