For those of us in primary care, a big chunk of our workload are elderly people and because of demography and other well known factors, that is going to continue as our population ages and elderly medicine workload expands. Management of elderly patient’s problems can be complex as more than one pathology may be going on whilst there may be number of social and cultural problems in the background. Many of these issues are now uniquely handled within the primary care set up, so it is important that we have a good knowledge framework to support our activity.
