Sep 16, 2013, 03:00 ET from EUGMS 2013

VENICE, Italy, September 16, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

The 9th annual meeting of the European Union Geriatric Medicine Society (EUGMS),  will take place in Venice, Italy, from 2-4 October 2013, welcoming leading healthcare specialists including geriatricians, nurses, physiotherapists, occupational therapists, social workers, dieticians, and more, from across European Union member states and Switzerland. The spotlight of this year's congress falls on Europe's ageing population and on how improving healthcare outcomes of the older patients. Transcatheter Aortic Valve Implantation (TAVI), a rapidly evolving, minimally-invasive heart valve replacement procedure for elderly patients with severe symptomatic aortic stenosis, was chosen as the best example of this healthcare improvement in the elderly population.

Year after year, the Congress of the EUGMS has met with growing success, thanks to its consistently outstanding scientific program. Over 2,000 participants from Europe and across the world will gather in Venice for this major unrivalled conference which has become one of the most important international events in the field of Geriatric Medicine.

The programme is broad and varied in content and the conference promises to be one of the best sources of news and features in this arena.
