Geriatrics and Health
January 27, 2015 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm
Think geriatrics is depressing?? Oh no! Aging is one of the most important social issues in Western populations. This is a field of research and clinical care that is unknown but very dynamic. The complexity of cases (dementia, multiple chronic diseases, multi-ethnicity) requires exceptional creativity on the part of researchers and health professionals. Their challenges are many and varied: how to communicate with someone who speaks neither French nor English and who is struggling with dementia? Preventing falls while respecting the freedom of the elderly patients?
What could technology bring as solutions to these problems? Participate in the Hacking Health cafe on January 27th for the live experience!
The University of Montrea Institute of Geriatrics is particularly proud to be associated with the first Hacking Health geriatrics in the world!
The HH Cafe presentations will be held in the Amphitheatre Le Groupe Maurice and the cocktail in the main hall found on Level 1.
