We offer a limited number of grants of up to £300 to members of the British Geriatrics Society who are qualified therapists (and therapists in training recognised by their Association or College) with an expressed special interest in the care of older patients to:
- Attend conferences, seminars and meetings of an innovative nature which will enhance their understanding and appreciation of the special needs of older patients
- Visit a geriatric ward which has an innovative service approach, special programme or project for the care of older patients.
The primary purpose of the scheme is to provide a source of funds enabling at least one therapist of a multidisciplinary team to be exposed to innovative educational experiences relevant to the special needs of older patients.
