European Geriatric Medicine
The Society’s Official Journal (EUGMS)
EGM warmly welcomes research in any of the current EUGMS focus areas:
appropriate drug research and use in older people, cardiovascular geriatric medicine, sarcopenia and frailty, geriatric care, and end-of-life care for older people.
European Geriatric Medicine is intended for geriatricians, other geriatric team members (nurses, therapists, educators), researchers, administrators/decision makers, and students, as well as professionals in borderline specialties (rehabilitation, cardiology, neurology…).
The primary mission of the BGS is to contribute to the improvement of healthcare for older adults. This is accomplished by advocating for high clinical quality standards, funding training and education, advancing research, and influencing policymakers.
There are, however, a variety of ways in which members, non-members, and members of the general public can contribute to the achievement of these aims and objectives, which are detailed below. We strongly encourage you to get involved in any way that you can, and we are always interested in hearing about your own experiences, successes, setbacks, and priorities.
The EUGMS has expanded in scope in tandem with the EU’s expansion, and geriatricians in these new countries are making a positive contribution to society and promoting the delivery of high-quality evidence-based geriatric medicine to their ageing populations.
Our blog series delves into the factors that contribute to delayed discharges, the broader health and social care system’s implications, and what needs to change.
