Care of the Older Person: Overview

Our Care of the Older Person Masterclass will keep you up-to-date with the latest evidence, new guidelines and best practice in 6 core areas.

As a nation, we are living longer than ever before. By 2050 it’s estimated 1 in 4 people in the UK will be over 65, a total of 8 million. Healthcare workers across community, primary and secondary care are increasingly finding themselves on the frontline in empowering older patients in living healthy, active and independent lives, as well as supporting them through complex comorbidities.

Our Care of the Older Person Masterclass is a practical, multidisciplinary course, allowing you to interact and learn from colleagues from both primary and secondary care, and to take home key messages that you can implement in your practice the next day.


 Interactive voting – make decisions on cases as you would in your practice and see if your peers and our speakers agree

Dedicated question time with the experts – quiz them on a tricky condition, or get advice on how to manage a specific patient

Networking breaks giving you the opportunity to discuss key topics with your peers
