    Integrating Geriatrics into Rheumatology, Infectious Diseases, and Immunology. Symposium. Whistler, BC, CAN, 1997/08/05.

    Although adults aged 65 years and older constitute the most rapidly growing segment of the U.S. population, geriatric issues have not typically been a focus of training in infectious diseases (ID).

    Underrecognition of the unique aspects of geriatric care, apathy toward this population, and the feeling that « we're all geriatricians » (and thus know geriatric medicine) all contribute to this problem.

    This article summarizes the recent meeting focused on integrating geriatric principles within ID training at all levels.

    The IDlgeriatric interface as an attractive area for basic and clinical research is emphasized.
