Research is an essential prerequisite in developing the speciality further in the area, and in developing evidence-based practice.

  4. To help in the development of training programmes in the field of ageing
  5. To organise conferences that deals with health care service for the elderly.
  6. To establish a number of experts from a multidisciplinary background to act as advisors and mentors.
  7. To foster collaboration between different health care facilities providing elderly services.
