Do you deliver health and/ or social care to older people and their families?

As the largest, and growing focus for adult nursing in the UK, caring for older people requires diverse expertise from a wide range of healthcare professionals. Nurses, AHPs and social care all working together with doctors. As such the RCN Older People's forum and British Geriatrics Society (BGS) would like to hear from you. This is your opportunity to take part by submitting an abstract for presentation.
