A warm welcome to our website.

On behalf of the Organising Committee, I would like to welcome you to the 2014 Age Anaesthesia Association Scientific Meeting Website.

This year, as with all the previous meetings, we are aiming to provide you with education, debate and opportunities to interact with like-minded professionals whose interest is to improve care for the growing older surgical population.

With the launch of the elderly supplement in Anaesthesia and the updated Anaesthesia glossy on perioperative care of the older surgical patient, this meeting will explore in more detail some of the highlighted issues and problems such as frailty, and blood conservation in surgery. As well as the keynote lecture on delirium and perioperative management, this year I am pleased to welcome our guest lecture from the Ethics and Law in Medicine Society on a subject that affects us all.

I also look forward to our annual debate, this time on the issue of postoperative cognitive dysfunction which I hope will generate a lot of interest and audience participation. Lastly, as with previous years, we are hosting the 2 networks which were launched from this Association: the neck of femur fracture and the emergency laparotomy networks. Both require your support and contributions.

I hope that you can join us for this meeting which has something for everyone whether you are an anaesthetist, physician, surgeon or allied health professional. Please have a look at the programme and see for yourself!! I believe the most important factor in achieving good care for these patients is teamwork and good communication amongst all healthcare providers.

See you in Edinburgh!
