Building upon the great success of the first Total Nutrition Therapy – Geriatrics course (TNT-Geriatric) launched in 2011 in La Granja (Spain) and based on a two full day training of more than 1,600 geriatricians and healthcare professionals from Asia, Europe, Central & South America, and Middle East, we are delighted to introduce the revised and updated TNT.
The launch of the TNT – Geriatric 2.0 course will take place in KRAKOW (Poland) from November 14 to 16 2014, under the leadership of the European Union Geriatric Medicine Society (EUGMS), and Jagiellonian Medical university, with the kind support of Abbott Nutrition
We are pleased to announce that JAMA, one of the international high-profile general medical journals, will consider papers presented in the EUGMS Rotterdam congress for potential publication.
Authors must notify the chair of the Scientific Committee of the EUGMS congress in Rotterdam board of their intention to submit a paper to JAMA when they submit their abstract for the EUGMS 2014 congress (deadline: April 25 2014) . They have to submit their full paper to JAMA before May 17, 2014. All submissions will undergo the regular JAMA peer review process and if accepted, will be published online concurrent to the Rotterdam EUGMS meeting in September 2014. Acceptance of the abstract for presentation at the EUGMS conference, and registration of the presenting author to attend the EUGMS and present the abstract (poster or oral) is a prerequisite for consideration for publication in JAMA. The Scientific committee of the Rotterdam congress, together with the Academic Board of the EUGMS will work together with JAMA in this process.
Age-related changes in pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics occur with several drugs and often need to be considered for an optimal dosing regimen of antimicrobials.
The aim of this course fostered by the European Society of Clinical Microbiology and Infecctious Diseases is to provide participants with an updated insight into PK/PD concepts of antimicrobial therapy for geriatric patients.

Dear EUGMS Friends
Continuing Jean-Pierre Michel’s work, I’m now taking charge as your president for 2014-2015. With this letter I would like to share with you some thoughts, updates and even some visions for my term. In the Executive Board we have had frequent discussions how to involve more the Full Board in EUGMS operations, and one way is to elaborate and improve reciprocal communication. I partly repeat information already communicated to you by Jean-Pierre in his last greetings as EUGMS president.
