Frailty is a very prevalent syndrome in the elderly in which the probability of an adverse event occurring is increased: falls, hospitalisation, institutionalisation and even death. Since 2015, a consortium formed by Health and Gerontological Research institutions, Technology Centres and the UPV/EHU has been working to develop tools aimed at its diagnosis and approach. In this conference we will present the main results achieved by the consortium and we will have the opportunity to learn about initiatives carried out by other entities in our environment.

Rethinking the social role of ageing in the framework of COVID-19

  Date:
 Type: Webinar
 Line of Knowledge: 
 Location: Online

According to the data published so far, the pandemic caused by COVID-19 has severely affected older people, especially those living in residential centres. The vulnerability and poor prognosis of the disease in this population group has led to the implementation of more restrictive preventive measures of confinement, isolation and social distancing than in any other group, accompanied by ageist attitudes that are determinant in essential issues such as treatment or access to services by older people.

2nd Virtual Congress of the Spanish Society of Geriatrics and Gerontology (SEGG). New challenges for ageing.

  Date:
 Type: Congress
 Line of Knowledge: 
 Location: Online

This is the second virtual congress organised by the SEGG and we are doing so with the experience gained at the first virtual congress, which served as a learning experience, and with the commitment to increase the number of participants and the scientific level of the first meeting.

Although we are looking forward to holding congresses again that allow the physical presence of the congress participants, which always stimulates human contact and makes professional contact easier, the situation of the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic in our country obliges us to continue working virtually.
