About this event

  • Organised by Geriatrics and Gerontology

Following the success of previous years, the event Biology of ageing is back with a two-part webinar series to 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 flagship meeting will cover the Geriatric Medicine syllabus and the new curriculum.

Part 2 of the series will explore the current developments in elderly care, and how to manage the frail elderly in the community and virtual wards. Also, learn about brain development in ageing with surgical knowledge.

During this webinar, you will learn about:

  • Elderly virtual wards and community
  • The bladder, the brain and the kidney in the ageing process

Part 1 will explore the clinical implications of ageing on the endocrine system, the gut, the liver and other organs. To find more information and book your place, please click here.

This webinar is available for on-demand viewing. The webinar recording will be available for registered event participants up to 60 days after the live webinar broadcast via Zoom. The link will be sent 24 hours after the webinar takes place.
