On behalf of the 11th Congress of the EUGMS, I have the great pleasure and honour of inviting you to the first ever EUGMS congress in Oslo 16 – 18 September 2015.
Norway is not as far away as you think, and thanks to a small but nice city centre, we would like to call the EUGMS in Oslo the "Compact Congress".
The title of the congress is:
Geriatric medicine for future Europeans – Successful aging creates new challenges.
The program consists of sessions about the healthiest patients, health optimization, prevention as an underused intervention, organization of acute geriatric care in different countries, and tailored drug treatment. Other central topics will be integrated care for elderly people such as pre-post and perioperative care in orthogeriatrics, cancer and cardiac surgery. New discoveries in dementia are of course part of the program. The rest of the program will cover main topics in geriatric medicine.
We hope you will join us in Oslo, and as the host of the EUGMS Congress we will make every effort to ensure a memorable congress for you. Not only because of an exciting program, but also by "breaking the ice" between participants from many, if not all European countries, in order to improve the evidence based treatment of our patients.
