With success of Geriatrics 2020, we are glad to announce "11th International Conference on Geriatrics, Gerontology & Elderly Care" which has been slated on June 07-08, 2021 at Berlin, Germany. Covering the theme “Explore and reveal the systematic developments in Geriatrics, Gerontology & Elderly Care”. It is a great pleasure to invite all geriatricians, gerontologists, scientists, public health experts, policy-makers and researchers to share their knowledge and new ideas through a series of Key Notes, Plenary Talks, Workshops, Symposiums, Young Research Forum and Exhibitions.
1. Geriatrics and Gerontology
Growing oldest old number of people who are susceptible to several medical complications such as neurological, respiratory, orthopaedic and cardiovascular diseases coupled with increase in the advancement of technology such as the development of specialty robots skilled for assisting old people in carrying out day to day operations is anticipated to drive the geriatric care services market share. The global geriatric research market was valued at US$ 599.6 billion in 2015 and is expected to expand at a CAGR of 4.2% during the period 2016 – 2024.
2. Palliative and Community Nursing
Palliative care is a methodology that enhances the quality of life of patients and their families confronting the issue related with life-threatening illness, through the counteractive action and help of suffering by methods for early identification and flawless evaluation and treatment of pain and different issues, physical, psychosocial and spiritual. Community nursing incorporates Public Health Nursing and Community Health care.
3. Geriatrics and Elderly Care
The global population of elderly of 65 years is growing at an exponential way, driven by better healthcare, nutrition and an abrupt decrease in infectious diseases exposure. From few years it got witnessed in many cases that changing demographics and an increasing life-expectancy of the global population, resulting in the rapid growth of a geriatric population requiring medical support. Likewise, a changing pattern in the absence of family based providing care and in addition changing consumer preferences relating to the kind of medical is also emerging in many countries.
4. Alzheimers Disease and Dementia
Alzheimer's disease is a neurological cerebrum issue. Alzheimer's is the most widely recognized type of dementia. Dementia is a disorder, generally of a chronic or progressive nature, caused by a brain illness that affects memory, thinking, behaviour and capability to perform regular exercises. The number of individuals living with dementia worldwide is at present evaluated at 47 million and is anticipated to increment to 75 million by 2030. The number of instances of dementia is assessed to relatively triple by 2050.
5. Stem Cells and Ageing
Novel therapeutics and routine utilization of autologous stem cell transplantation have prompted considerable changes in persistent survival, in spite of the fact that enhancements have been more great among patients more younger than age 65. Europe is the second biggest contributor as far as income for the development of the worldwide stem cells market. Patients from different nations in Europe and in addition the U.S. also, Canada travel to Germany to get medical treatments at reasonable expenses. Likewise, an increasing number of patients are taking the choice of undergoing stem cell procedures in Germany.
6. Health for Ageing
The mHealth technology can help change and develop health behaviors like increased consumption of fruits and vegetables, stress management, reduced consumption of salt and improved quality of diet and sleep; and improve self-efficacy in elderly individuals with chronic disease such as cognitive disorders & Alzheimer’s, heart disease and susceptibility to metabolic risk & diabetes through text messages, voice messages, voice calls and game-based mobile applications.
7. Management of Cancer in Older People
Population aged more than 65 years are more inclined to chronic diseases because of their weak immune system. With a rapidly ageing population moving the spotlight to geriatric oncology, research in this field is also rapidly changing and progressing. Older adults are heterogeneous and regularly barred from clinical trials. New models of care would be invaluable for older adults with cancer, encouraging joint effort, correspondence, and patient-centeredness and limiting the fracture that debilitates the current provision of cancer care. The more regrettable result for elderly patients is just halfway disclosed by decreased tolerance to treatment regimens related with the expanding number and seriousness of comorbidities.
8. Geriatric Nutrition
Changes associated with normal aging increase nutritional risk for older adults. Nutrition has a major role in protecting health and slowing disease progression. Paradigms that promote the nutritional components of healthy aging are needed to increase the age of chronic degenerative disease onset and to maintain healthy, functional lives for as long as possible. At this time, there is a tremendous disconnecting between nutrition and how it is implemented into healthcare.
9. Falls, Joints and Bone Health
Ageing happens because of the pleiotropic impacts of genes that determine different processes. Genes that impact longevity are associated with stress response and nutrient sensing. Telomere shortening prompts cell development arrest and apoptosis. Genes associated with ageing longevity have different functions in cells, particularly roles in pressure reaction and control of metabolism.
10. Osteoporosis and Bone Health
Osteoporosis is a kind of disease which is caused due to low bone mass and density and results in fragility of bones, this in result increases the risk factors like bone, spine and hip fractures and bones usually get porous in elders. The probability of Osteoporosis diseases is high in Elderly than young people. This an silent disease where you don’t find symptoms for your bone loss an inadequate supply of calcium over a lifetime can contribute to the development of osteoporosis.
11. Genetics of Ageing
Genetics of aging is generally concerned with life extension associated with genetic alterations, rather than with accelerated aging diseases leading to reduction in lifespan. The first mutation found to increase longevity in an animal was the age-1 gene in Caenorhabditis elegans.
12. Geriatric Services
Geriatric care services enable families to make and implement long term care plans for their loved ones. Geriatric Services are hospital and community-based health care services that analyze, treat and restore fragile older adults with complex medical, functional and psychosocial issues. Elderly patients frequently require an assortment of services to help with medicinal services and different issues. Sometimes, geriatric patients require home care, which may be given by organizations that utilize nurses and other.
13. Elder Abuse, Law and Rights
The abuse of elderly happens too frequently yet remains a largely hidden problem. It is anticipated to increase as many countries are experiencing rapidly ageing population. Senior abuse can prompt serious physical injuries and long-term psychological consequences, expanded danger of nursing home placement, use of emergency services, hospitalization and death.
14. Geriatric Endocrinology and Diabetes
Significant advances in wellbeing and social prosperity have prompted linear gains in life expectancy and a going with increment in the burden imposed by age-related morbidities. Complex adjustments in hormonal networks which control homeostasis and survival may underlie this poor adjustment to later life. Both the menopause and subclinical thyroid disease show the trouble in turning around endocrine changes in later life. In old age (≥60– 65 years of age), Diabetes mellitus is becoming an alarming public health issue. Among the elderly population, type 2 diabetes is a growing issue, and a bigger extent of recently analysed diabetics is older.
15. Geriatric Rehabilitation
With increased age, patients regularly confront numerous physical and emotional changes that can influence level of function and well-being. Rehabilitation keeps up functional independence in the elderly. Rehabilitation of geriatric patients is basic for the patients' wellbeing and for society. Geriatric rehabilitation additionally have a role in transitional care, where patients are alluded by a hospital or family doctor, when there is a prerequisite to give hospital based short term intensive physical therapy went for the recuperation of musculoskeletal function, especially recovery from joint, ligament, or tendon repair.
16. COPD in Elderly
Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) is a disease that goes worst over the time and makes hard to breath. The results of COPD can be coughing and produces mucus, wheezing, shortness of breath, chest tightness, and other symptoms. Long-term exposure to lung irritants that damage the lungs and the airways usually is the cause of COPD.
17. Economic and Social Impact of Ageing
The worlds population is ageing rapidly. Between 2015 and 2050, the proportion of the worlds older adults is estimated to almost double from about 12% to 22%. In absolute terms, this is an expected increase from 900 million to 2 billion people over the age of 60. Older people face special physical and mental health challenges which need to be recognized. Over 20% of adults aged 60 and over suffer from a mental or neurological disorder (excluding headache disorders) and 6.6% of all disability (disability adjusted life years-DALYs) among people over 60 years is attributed to mental and neurological disorders. Aging of the population influences all parts of the society including health, social security, education, socio-cultural activities and family life. The financial and social outcomes of population ageing are clarified by changes in lifecycle behaviour.
