The Irish Gerontological Society is delighted to announce an interdisciplinary symposium on Interdisciplinary Education – Unlocking our Potential.

The aim of this symposium is to have a purposeful discussion around interdisciplinary education, the concept that interdisciplinary education commences as an undergraduate and becomes an integral part of day-to-day practice.

Key experts will discuss the importance of interdisciplinary education from a clinical, academic and research perspective and its role and impact in older persons care.

This symposium will be of interest to academics, researchers, doctors, nursing and health and social care professions.

Speakers: TBC
