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. Make your voice heard and share new solutions to older people's care whilst inspiring attendees to achieve personal excellence in the care of older people.

This year's conference themes include:

  • innovative services led by nurses and medics relating to the care of older people
  • the interface between medicine and nursing
  • multi-disciplinary team working
  • leading teams.


Due to a high number of submissions we are still reviewing abstracts and hope to inform submitter's from 18 April onwards.
