This meeting will draw leading research teams in the field to present their experiences and findings, and to engage in dialogue with participants.

It will allow participants, particularly those in specialist training, to display a poster on their own innovations in service development for care home residents. A certificate will be awarded for the best poster(s).

To submit a poster, please email an abstract (maximum 500 words) to geriatrics@rsm.ac.uk by Thursday 13 April 2017.

The aim is to present the latest evidence about best ways for the NHS, care homes and local authorities to work together to provide optimal medical care for care home residents.
