The British Geriatrics Society is committed to fostering research and providing continuing professional development (CPD).
The aims of our annual meetings are to highlight current clinical practice; provide a platform to present current research outcomes and showcase successful service delivery. Our events accept abstracts from researchers around the world and welcome multi-disciplinary audiences.
Each meeting focuses on key themes in the healthcare of older people and is built around our central CPD programme to address knowledge gaps, explore solutions to critical issues and to address the changing needs of today’s ageing population. Our annual Spring and Autumn conferences feature plenary sessions with internationally renowned invited speakers, as well as parallel sessions devoted to special interest areas and clinical developments. The in-depth programme is devised with input from our Special Interest Groups and expert members, attracting over 600 delegates across 3 days.
