Publication types: English Abstract ; Journal Article - Publication Status: ppublish
The health care system faces a difficult challenge as a result of the demographic evolution. The acute hospital is especially challenged by the steady increase of the elderly population. The collaboration between internal medicine and geriatrics in this setting could prove useful to facilitate the adaptation of the acute care setting and greatly enhance education of the health care professionals. Internists and geriatricians can benefit from each other skills and competencies to develop together new models of acute care that would better match the elderly population needs.
