A True Gem in Emergency Medicine!

Research output: Contribution to journalMagazine ArticleEducation


Geriatric Emergency Medicine (GEM) is a relatively new subspecialty. GEM aims to provide the highest quality of emergency medicine (EM) care for older patients. There is a lot of work to be done in this field to educate medical students and EM trainees, to understand the pathophysiology of aging and frailty, to recognise its impact on the acute presentation of older people in the emergency department (ED), and to identify its effect on treatment choices and patient outcomes.
How did I fall in love with GEM? I was once asked by a senior colleague and mentor, ‘Why GEM? There’s nothing interesting or challenging about GEM’.
