Geriatric Emergency Medicine (GEM) is a growing subspeciality to improve the care and outcome for older people.

Join us on a patient journey in the healthcare system to share and exchange Geriatric Emergency Medicine (GEM) tips and pearls of wisdom from an interprofessional team of experts.

The day takes the form of panel discussions with diverse stakeholders:

The phone call from RACF to QAS to transfer a resident to ED
Arrival at ED and assessment for a fall in the acute area
Transfer to Short Stay Unit for observation and comprehensive geriatric assessment with allied health input
Review by geriatrician, older person mental health liaison and social worker
Finally, the registrar approaches the GEM doctor confessing that they need to brush up on their GEM skills and seeking GEM educational resources or training.
