A new online resource, developed by the General Medical Council (GMC) working with the British Geriatrics Society and Age UK, has been designed to support doctors with day-to-day care of older patients. It provides several video interviews plus practical advice on how to meet the clinical, emotional and psychological needs of older patients. Advice is based on GMC guidance, case studies, scenarios, influential articles and proven tips for doctors.

The main section headings in this resource comprise:
