Event description

Description

Population ageing is occurring rapidly and between 2015 and 2030, the number of people in the world aged 60 years or over is projected to grow by 56%. By 2050, the global population of older people is projected to more than double its size (United Nations, 2015). In Ireland, the old population (i.e. those aged 65 years and over) is projected to increase by between 58 and 63 per cent from 2015 to 2030. The older old population (i.e. those aged 80 years of age and over) is set to rise even more dramatically, by between 85 per cent and 94 per cent in this time period (ESRI 2017). As older people have different healthcare requirements, the Irish healthcare system needs to adapt to meet the demands associated with these demographic changes.


This summit will showcase and celebrate excellence in the care of older people across the spectrum of healthcare
