It is with delight that we welcome you to attend the rejuvenated 2021 ANZSGM Annual Scientific Meeting on the 19th – 21st May 2021 at the Sofitel Melbourne on Collins. Your safety is our priority; therefore, the conference will be a hybrid event so that you can attend the entire conference from the comfort of your own home or office if you are unable to attend in-person.

‘20/20 Hindsight: Vision for the Future’ will provide a platform to reflect on the lessons from 2020 and an opportunity look forward to the future with new eyes.  There will be updates on dementia and delirium along with sessions on the interface between geriatric medicine and other specialities. We will be exploring topical issues such as the residential aged care Covid-19 response, the Royal Commission into Aged Care Quality and Safety and the implementation of Voluntary Assisted Dying legislation in Victoria amongst other thought-provoking topics.

There will be a mixture of live-streamed sessions, live Q&A, pre-recorded sessions, and panel discussions. Sessions will be recorded and available to view On-Demand for 90 days after the end of the conference.

We, along with our speakers, are just as committed to bringing you a stellar scientific programme. We sincerely hope you can attend either in-person or virtually and thank you for your ongoing support of the ANZSGM.
