Jewish General Hospital Department of Nursing presents the 31st Annual Symposium on Nursing, Health and Healthcare — The Aging Adult and Critical Illness: Mastering the Complexities of Care.
Join us at the Gelber Conference Center for an exciting day of expert discussion about what all health care professionals must know when addressing complex health issues with the aging patient. This year’s theme will be explored through presentations and discussion with a number of well-known experts from all disciplines. In addition to dynamic plenary sessions, particular areas of interest will be addressed during nine concurrent sessions. Older adults overwhelmingly represent the majority of patients receiving critical care worldwide. With greater longevity, more people are growing older and dealing with chronic health conditions, multiple comorbid conditions, and the health impacts as a result of the interaction of these factors (Foreman, Milisen, Fulmer). Expertise in geriatric care is a must for all health care professionals, and some leading health care analysts would say this expertise is gravely insufficient! This hallmark conference is important to all nurses, physicians, and allied health professionals who care for the aging adult in any clinical area and in any health care organization. The symposium will bring together health care participants and experts for a full day of intensive education and networking. Email: email@example.com
