ANZSGM’s media centre includes information about and links to the Society’s activity in the media.
The Australian and New Zealand Society for Geriatric Medicine (ANZSGM) is the peak professional society for geriatricians and other medical practitioners who wish to advance equitable access to the highest quality health care and foster excellence in health care of older persons in Australia and New Zealand.
We set, promote and continuously improve the standards of clinical practice in geriatrics throughout Australia and New Zealand. The Society is the chief advocacy group for specialists in aged care and aims to facilitate training and professional development to improve medical practice to enhance the quality of care for our patients.
We support the needs of geriatricians in Australia and New Zealand to help them provide the best possible care to older people. Our focus is on policy development and education. We advocate to government for improvement and innovation in aged care medical services and for the professional needs of geriatricians. ANZSGM members represent the organisation on committees and advisory groups whose purpose is to shape the future of older people across Australia and New Zealand.
The ANZSGM considers the media a key stakeholder in ensuring consumers and healthcare professionals remain informed about the latest healthcare issues, to enable them to make more informed decisions.
