“Golden Jubilee; Redefining Geriatric Giants”. 2022 marks 50 years of the ANZSGM and provides an excellent opportunity to reflect on how our knowledge, technology, service demands and provisions have changed over the last 50 years, and in turn, how these impact on our future as clinicians, advocates and organisations. Our speakers will discuss and challenge approaches to our core business, the Geriatric Giants, and introduce new concepts including cognitive frailty and global approaches to providing systematic geriatric care. We will review the roll out of the recommendations from the Royal Commission into Aged Care Quality and Safety and have updates on COVID-19 and Voluntary Assisted Dying. With a view to the future and diversity of our expanding specialty, we will hear from Perioperative and Geriatric Oncology specialists, in addition to a plenary session on Indigenous health and ageing.
