The Geriatric Medicine Refresher Day will be celebrating it's 33rd Year in 2019. We are proud to continue to offer the annual conference that provides professionals with the opportunity to broaden their knowledge base, to refine specific skills, and to meet with others who share their concern in improving quality care for the older adult. The full day conference is now one of the premier conferences in Ontario and has ground in size over the years drawing 500 health care professionals trained in all disciplines relevant to the elderly from the Southwestern Ontario region. The plenary session encourages interdisciplinary discussion of a subject common to all, while concurrent sessions provide medical updates and review of best practices of topics in geriatric care. All sessions include time for questions from participants and many speakers are available for informal discussions throughout the day. We encourage all to visit the wide variety of Exhibitors that compliment the workshops with services, products and programs available throughout the SW Ontario region.
The London Convention Centre is the venue for the Refresher Days following the great success and positive feedback from many of the participants over the past several years. With current fiscal restraints, many people/programs must choose to attend, or send participants to, fewer conferences. They however, remain committed to the Geriatric Refresher Day as the conference offers a diversity of educational seminars and interesting speakers for physicians and healthcare teams in their care of the elderly population. Our planning committee is committed to listening to feedback and offering a stellar line-up of presenters and current topics relevant to the care of the older adult.
