This webinar will provide healthcare professionals and the interested public with an understanding of the ageing process, the impact of ageing on health and the presentation of diseases in that age group.
This session will explore the clinical implications of ageing on the brain, vision, heart, kidneys, bones and joints. Participants will understand cellular function and dysfunction throughout life and learn to distinguish between physiological and chronological ageing processes in their patients’ musculoskeletal systems.
This event is running as part of an educational day event coordinated by the RSM Geriatrics and Gerontology and Trainees Sections, to create a rich and varied educational and networking opportunity for a diverse audience.
After the lecture, stay for the Clinical governance and audit prize presentations which aim to showcase and promote the best clinical geriatric audits and government projects that have been undertaken by doctors and allied health professionals in training over this year in the UK and overseas.
Aims for this session include:
- Provide an overview of the normal physiological changes associated with the ageing process
- Recognize the differences between the ageing process and diseases common in old age
- Appreciate that age-associated changes increase the vulnerability to certain diseases and may affect their presentations
- Differentiate between age-associated cognitive changes, mild cognitive impairment, and dementia
- Understand the concept of frailty
