About the Geriatric Medicine programme

Developed in partnership with the British Geriatrics Society, the aim of this programme is to bring together learning resources that relate to the care of older people into one place. Over time, the resources will grow and be added to, and will become a valuable resource for the wider multi-professional team looking after older people and those living with frailty.

The programme provides learning on the acute presentation of illness in older people, anaesthesia, dementia care and multi-professional care presented in the form of e-learning sessions and podcasts.

The resources have been collated by Dr Iain Wilkinson, Consultant Geriatrician at Surrey and Sussex Healthcare NHS Trust with the support of the British Geriatrics Society.
