Objectives

The EUSEM Geriatric Section and the European Geriatric Medicine Society (EUGMS) have established a joint task force with the following objectives:

  • To develop a European Curriculum on GEM.
  • To propose a draft for a European Course on GEM.
  • To develop European Research on GEM.
  • To organise scientific joint sessions at EUSEM and EUGMS congresses.
  • To submit two papers on the GEM curriculum and GEM research in the European Journal of Emergency Medicine.
  • Production of a European Text Book on GEM.
  • To set a strategy for getting finances to support Task Force activities.
  • To set quality indicators and guidelines.

European Curriculum of Geriatric Emergency Medicine (ECGEM)

The Task Force has produced a curriculum intended to outline competencies relevant to the care of older people (>65 years of age), especially those with frailty, for physicians working in emergency care (including pre-hospital care and emergency departments). This curriculum should be used in conjunction with the European Curriculum for Emergency Medicine (in due course ECGEM will be incorporated into the wider curriculum).
