This conference provides geriatric health professionals throughout the continuum of care with clinical and practical topics relevant to health practice with older adults.  These topics were selected because they represent areas of need as identified by participants and faculty who provide health care to older adults.  Some topics represent increasing clinical concerns in the geriatric population. Other topics represent areas that have important policy and cost implications for health care providers and ultimately affect the way services are provided to older patients.
