On Sunday, September 11, Keyna Health Show will conclude our discussion about Geriatrics and Geriatric Syndromes. Geriatric Medicine is a specialty of medicine focusing on the physical, mental and social well-being of the elderly people.
It aims to promote their health, by preventing and treating diseases & disabilities.
Geriatrics Syndromes refer to common health conditions in the elderly that don’t fit into disease category.
They include delirium, falls, incontinence, frailty, pressure ulcers, dizziness and functional decline.
These groups of patients are considered to have a high degree of frailty requiring a holistic approach that would improve the quality of their lives.
What are the best methods of optimizing patient outcome in the elderly or older patients? What are the most geriatric conditions and how can geriatrics be managed to ensure that we can add value to their lives and make them live a robust healthy life.
Join us on Sunday September 11, 2022 on Keyna Health Show by 2.00 PM CST and Nigerian Time 8.00 PM and be adequately debriefed on the issue.
