Where to go to for Workshops on Health Issues in Older Persons or Caring for Older Persons?
We are often asked this question. The MSGM represents geriatricians and other healthcare professionals involved in the care of older persons. We do hold conferences to share information but we do not currently hold workshops of our own. We do know that the following organizations do hold regular workshops for healthcare professionals, care workers and the general public, and regularly support them in their efforts:
ACT4Health is a University of Malaya start-up set up by the Ageing and Age-Associated Disorders Research Group to conduct training on research findings that they have generated. They now conduct workshops on a range of health topics for older persons. Visit and like their facebook page to find our more.
