The 12th Congress of EUGMS, attended by more than 1,500 participants from 55 countries, has been held in Lisbon, Portugal, from 5 to 7 October 2016.
The European Union Geriatric Medicine Society, EUGMS, is the collaborating and co-ordinating organisation of the national geriatric medical societies of the European Union member states, but also includes Switzerland.
The EUGMS’ mission is to develop geriatric medicine in all member states as a recognised independent medical specialty, contributing to the care of all older people with age-related diseases. Year after year, the Congress has become one of the most important international events in the field of Geriatric Medicine.
This edition of the Congress has been targeted to specialists and health care professionals sharing the same interest in geriatric medicine: mainly geriatricians, internists, general practitioners, neurologists and physicians from every medical discipline, therapists, nurses, gerontologists, researchers and scientists, pharmacists, nutritionists as well to anyone taking care of the older patients, in order to understand the social, medical and clinical approach to geriatric diseases.
