Dubrovnik, Croatia
Abstract
Aging is the largest risk factor for a panoply of chronic diseases, which impose huge burdens on societies and economies. An underexplored yet critical aspect of aging is the multiplicity of cellular phenotypes that emerge in aging metazoans. The Zing conference on “Cell Fate Diversity in Aging” will focus on molecular processes that give rise to these cellular phenotypes and their tissue-specific consequences. It will discuss processes such as damage, developmental cascades and pleiotropic effects in driving different cell fates, including cell death, senescence, adaptive reprogramming and cell fitness.

Caring for Older people: How Can We Do the Right Things Right?
ID
773478
Dates
04 Oct 2016 - 07 Oct 2016
Location
Rotterdam, Netherlands
Abstract
Health care around the globe is facing extraordinary challenges due to demographic changes, changing patterns of diseases, budgetary restrictions and changing expectations of patients. Health care is increasingly becoming caring for older people and yet we know health care is often not fitting their needs. Nurses play increasingly important roles in efforts to tackle these challenges. They are key players in the provision of safe, high-quality and efficient health services. Their key role makes nurses increasingly subject of criticism and blaming by the media when quality care is not provided. Are nurses failing to deliver quality care? What education do they need? How can nurses live up to the expectations of the public? How can patient and public involvement contribute to the quality of nursing care? To face these challenges and to ensure nurses’ contribution to quality care an essential step is the strengthening of evidence based practice and innovation.
