Strategic objectives 

Improve the knowledge of geriatric medicine (diseases and disability in elderly persons and care systems), with a focus essentially aimed at risk reduction (patient safety) and the prevention or delay of physical and mental disability. Specifically, including patients admitted to care homes and other complex patients in clinical research projects.

Research lines

  • Appropriate drug prescription in elderly people.
  • Systemic review of non-pharmacological therapies of geriatric syndromes.
  • Prognostic value of comprehensive geriatric assessment.
  • Definition of sarcopenia and frailty. Value of nutritional intervention and exercise in the prevention of physical disability.
  • Indications of nutritional intervention in geriatrics.
