We had a great forum meeting yesterday at the Leicester Royal Infirmary organised by Clare Archer. Clare had arranged for Prof Simon Conroy, Consultant Geriatrician, to come and talk to us. Simon got us all thinking about frailty and CGA. He also facilitated us to develop an “elevator pitch” to convince a colleague from a different speciality what value we, as ANPs in Geriatrics, can add to his/her patients. This really did get our brains working! Jonny Dexter has agreed to write this discussion up to go on this site.
After Simon left we agreed a more formal format for these meetings to maximise their value for the group and we had a chat about developments in our areas.
Thanks to Simon and Clare.
The next meeting will be on 15 February at King’s Mill Hospital. Hope to see you there.
