Geriatrics covers physical, mental, functional and social conditions affecting elderly people. Many geriatric patients can be characterised as frail and have complex health issues requiring a holistic approach.
Our research includes investigations into the medical treatment of acute and chronic conditions, rehabilitation, prevention of disease and disability, and end-of-life care.
The research group for geriatrics is interdisciplinary and currently focuses on three areas:
- Reduced mobility and falls
- Cognitive decline and dementia
- The development of care pathways for elderly patients
