Professor Sir Peter Rubin, Chair of the GMC, discusses the GMC’s latest campaign and online resource
The content will be regularly updated with fresh topics and personal perspectives from leading clinicians and others working in the field. One article by Dr Adam Gordon of the British Geriatrics Society reflects on a recent experience that shows the importance of involving a person’s family and carer in decisions about their end-of-life treatment.
Doctors can also download a reflections record. This will help them to think about what they have read and identify specific areas of skills and experience they may want to improve when treating older people. Doctors can use this for their appraisal and revalidation portfolios.
We welcome people’s feedback on the resource and if there is information you would like to see included make sure to let us know. We want to make it as useful to doctors as possible so please send us your suggestions and comments via the website and help us to support doctors to give the best possible care to older patients.
