The Scientific Programme Committee invites you to participate in the 2020 ANZSGM ASM by submitting an abstract for presentation in concurrent sessions. We are seeking submissions that will provoke debate, stimulate discussion, offer new ideas and encourage the dissemination of research findings.
Our conference theme "Vision for the future” will focus on emerging themes in Geriatric Medicine and how these will impact on the care of the older person into the future. The scientific program 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. Our keynote international speaker is Professor Shaun O’Keeffe, Consultant Physician and Geriatrician at Galway University Hospitals and Honorary Personal Professor in the Department of Medicine at NUI Galway. Professor Andrea Maier, Divisional Director of Medicine and Community Care at Royal Melbourne Hospital and Professorial Fellow of Aged Care at the University of Melbourne is our national keynote.
