1st Swiss Ortho­geriatrics Day in Bern

Dear Colleagues,
Dear Sir/Madam 

The number of elderly patients in orthopaedics and traumatology is steadily increasing and represents a new challenge in interdisciplinary and interprofessional treatment.

On 31.10.2018 at the Inselspital in Bern at the “1st Swiss Orthogeriatrics Day” we will provide the framework to discuss this new clinical challenge with the inclusion of all interdisciplinary and interprofessional treating groups, from all regions of Switzerland. The programme includes specialist contributions by established speakers from the various centres in German and French speaking Switzerland as well as a guest speaker from Germany and is divided into three consecutive sessions:

  • Session 1: « Standards and controversies in the treatment of elderly patients »
  • Session 2: « Key note session - Geriatric anaesthesiology »
  • Session 3: « Co-management - Experience reports »

We look forward to seeing you.

Your hosts,

Prof. Dr. med. A. E. Stuck & PD Dr. med. J. D. Bastian
