Workshops

This second HARC workshop will be a perfect opportunity to meet prominent experts and experienced clinicians within the field of preventive gerontology and geriatrics.

Presented lectures will concentrate around the most actual topics of healthy ageing (exercise, nutrition, metabolic processes), so called “geriatrics giants” (cognitive functions, delirium, sarcopenia, frailty), and challenges in geriatric care (hypertension, heart failure, multi-morbidity, iatrogenic diseases, appropriate drug prescribing, information and communication technologies, ethical aspects, rehabilitation). Each state-of-the-art lecture will be followed by questions and answers, discussion with participants, and concluded with take-home-messages. Moreover, during “young investigators poster session” there will be a possibility to present original data and discuss the results with scientific leaders. We believe that the workshop will also create the unique possibility to initiate international collaboration and will result with future research projects.

Please note that we are looking for short summaries of reports of original research, which will be presented in a poster session (after acceptance by the Scientific Committee). Selected abs-tracts will be presented orally. Short summaries should be sent by email harc@umed.pl
