AAGP is excited to announce the theme of the 2018 AAGP Annual Meeting will be "Diversity & Inclusivity: Achieving Excellence in Geriatric Mental Health." We are making great strides in our understanding of the brain, its mechanisms, and pathologies. Breakthroughs are being made in our understanding of both normal and pathologic aging as well as in novel strategies to ameliorate age-related pathologies and to improve quality of life during normal aging.
The 2018 AAGP meeting will highlight the evolving science and practice of healthy aging by having presentations and discussion around the basic and applied science and practice of promoting and sustaining brain health during the aging process. Potential topics may include understanding how physical and mental exercise alters the aging process, cognitive training, mindfulness training as well as ways to integrate and train mental health professionals to be able to implement these research and clinical strategies in their practice.
In addition, the AAGP 2018 Program Committee also highlighted potential related topics:
Issues related to diversity, culture, and ethnicity related to patient care, education and research
The science of behavior change
Sex and Sexuality in aging
HIV and aging
Critical care and its impact on cognitive and emotional aging
Traumatic brain injury and its sequelae
PTSD/Trauma and aging
Complementary treatment approaches, psychosocial interventions, and the inclusion of spirituality in care delivery models
Non-physician geriatric mental healthcare professional education and training
Strategies to enhance successful aging, even in the face of medical comorbidities, including the "medical home" concept, senior friendly environmental design, and the "aging in place" movement
Ethical issues such as advance directives and end-of-life care
Novel interdisciplinary team models for the treatment of the elderly focusing on diversity and inclusion

The American Association for Geriatric Psychiatry Annual Meeting Program Committee invites you to submit a proposal for consideration for the 2018 Annual Meeting to be held in Honolulu, Hawaii, March 15-18, 2018. The AAGP 2018 conference theme focuses on Diversity and Inclusivity: Achieving Excellence in Geriatric Mental Health, which will represent a broad array of topics that impact older adults and their mental health. We invite you to submit a proposed session, clinical case, poster, or oral paper presentation for this dynamic and exciting meeting.
There are many venues at the AAGP Annual Meeting that invite innovative and interactive programs targeted towards clinicians, researchers, and educators. Clinicians and investigators in all areas of geriatric psychiatry, psychology, neurology, medicine, nursing, social work, and other related disciplines are encouraged to submit abstracts of original work for presentation at the AAGP Annual Meeting.
All submissions will be peer-reviewed by the 2018 AAGP Annual Meeting Program Committee. We request that all program proposals include some content on their applicability to clinical practice and with an interdisciplinary team approach. Please consider adding a newer member of the profession as part of your presenter panel. Additionally, submitters are encouraged to consider any special patient care needs of minority or underserved populations.
Please review the guidelines for submission to the AAGP Annual Meeting before submission and don’t hesitate to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org if need assistance with your submission.
Many people who attend the AAGP Annual Meeting do not attend any other scientific meeting. This is an important venue to present original research, new data, exciting clinical applications, service delivery initiatives, educational activities, and other pioneering work impacting our field today.
