CotE Champions

We want to hear about Audits and Quality Improvement Projects, done by junior doctors, focusing on issues relating to Geriatric Medicine and the care of older patients. Successful authors will have their poster displayed at the conference, with the top projects receiving the ‘Kate Granger Prize’ for dedication to improving standards of care for older patients.
