The program consisted of sessions about the healthiest patients, health optimization, prevention as an underused intervention, organization of acute geriatric care in different countries, and tailored drug treatment. Other central topics were integrated care for elderly people such as pre-post and perioperative care in orthogeriatrics, cancer and cardiac surgery. New discoveries in dementia are of course part of the program. The rest of the program covered the main topics in geriatric medicine.
