ANZSGM 2022 ASM Perth 8 - 10 June 2022

Welcome to the 2022 ANZSGM Annual Scientific Meeting


We are excited to welcome you to the Golden Jubilee ANZSGM ASM Perth from 8 to 10 June 2022. We will be holding a completely virtual event this year due to the current COVID situation. We look forward to engaging and connecting with as many of our members as possible in this new format which has allowed us to expand the programme and access scientific content and resources for longer following the conference dates.

Conference Theme

“Golden Jubilee; Redefining Geriatric Giants”. 2022 marks 50 years of the ANZSGM and provides an excellent opportunity to reflect on how our knowledge, technology, service demands and provisions have changed over the last 50 years, and in turn, how these impact on our future as clinicians, advocates and organisations. Our speakers will discuss and challenge approaches to our core business, the Geriatric Giants, and introduce new concepts including cognitive frailty and global approaches to providing systematic geriatric care. We will review the roll out of the recommendations from the Royal Commission into Aged Care Quality and Safety and have updates on COVID-19 and Voluntary Assisted Dying. With a view to the future and diversity of our expanding specialty, we will hear from Perioperative and Geriatric Oncology specialists, in addition to a plenary session on Indigenous health and ageing.

Keynote Speakers

This year we are delighted to be able to offer four keynote speakers. Our renowned international keynote speakers, Prof Matteo Cesari and Prof Bruno Vellas, will provide insights and updates into cognitive and physical frailty, as well as the WHO approach to integrated care for older people.

The Australasian keynote speakers, Prof Joseph Ibrahim and Dr Michal Boyd, both of whom have special interests in residential aged care will be able to provide insights regarding the roll out of the Royal Commission recommendations, in addition to innovative models of care to best support residential care.

Our virtual platform will be engaging and easy to use from wherever in the world you plan to enjoy this year’s conference. We will have a range of presentation formats including live and interactive sessions, panel discussions and on-demand sessions. Breakfast sessions will also be available at no additional cost in addition to virtual networking opportunities.

The 2022 ASM will be one to remember. We look forward to celebrating, learning and engaging with you in 2022.
