Improving Safety in Older People

September 28, 2018

Center of Excellence in Safety for Older People (CESOP) organized an International Conference on Improving Safety in Older People. It was a one day conference in association with a number of partners nationally and internationally. The goal of the conference was to provide updates, the current thoughts, and the latest innovations on improving the safety in the care of the older people in the residential care homes, nursing, hospitals, and the wider community.

Professor Iqbal Singh, an eminent East Lancashire based Consultant Physician, and expert in this field heads CESOP said, “We are living in a society where people are living longer and healthier with demographic projections showing that more than four percent of the population will be aged over 85, and over two percent will be over 65 by the year 2033. We still have huge ongoing challenges around healthcare issues such as falls and frailty, pressure ulcers and VTE, dementia and mental illness, as well as nutrition and medicines management. There is a pressing need for medical, nursing and social care that embodies compassion into all aspects of care, and that consistently treats older people with dignity and respect.”
