Missions Statement

Emergency departments are at the forefront of delivering care to older adults. As a result, there is an increasing need to work with Emergency Medicine colleagues to better understand and provide geriatric focused care in a high volume and fast-paced ED environment. The mission of this special interest group is to bring together AGS members who have an interest in leading the implementation of geriatric principles in Emergency Departments and increasing partnership between AGS and Emergency Medicine forums.
