    Aims and Scope


    European Geriatric Medicine is the official journal of the European Geriatric Medicine Society (EUGMS). Launched in 2010 this journal aims to publish the highest quality material, both scientific and clinical, on all aspects of Geriatric Medicine.

    The EUGMS is interested 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, geriatric education, old age psychiatry, models of geriatric care in health services, and quality assurance.

    European Geriatric Medicine welcomes very specially research in any of the main focus areas of EUGMS at present: appropriate research and use of drugs in older people, cardiovascular geriatric medicine, sarcopenia&frailty, geriatric care and 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.
