Aims and scope
European Geriatric Medicine is the official journal of the European Geriatric Medicine Society (EuGMS).
European Geriatric Medicine has a specific focus on Geriatric Medicine unlike the majority of other broader Gerontology journals. Launched in 2010, its scope is to provide a comprehensive and updated forum on all aspects of Geriatric Medicine, both with a clinical and academic focus.
The EuGMS is interested, through this journal, in the promotion of Geriatric Medicine in any setting (acute or subacute care, rehabilitation, nursing homes, primary care, fall clinics, ambulatory assessment, dementia clinics..), and also in functionality in old age, comprehensive geriatric assessment, geriatric syndromes, education, models of care in health services (with a special interest in projects funded by the European Union) and quality assurance.
A panel of international authoritative and highly specialized scientists constitutes the Editorial Board, representing areas such as geriatric pharmacology, cardiovascular geriatric medicine, sarcopenia&frailty, neurodegenerative diseases, geriatric emergency care and ethics/end of life care for older people.
European Geriatric Medicine does not publish research in basic (laboratory or animal models) or social sciences or other wider aspects of gerontology and aging.
European Geriatric Medicine has a global reach and is intended to geriatricians, other members of the geriatric team (nurses, therapists, educators), researchers, administrators/decision makers, students, and also professionals working in borderline specialties (rehabilitation, cardiology, neurology…).
