Sessions & Tracks

Track 1: Geriatric and Aging Biology

 

Geriatrics present medical care for the elderly, an age group that is not easy to define precisely. While aging biology refers to the inevitable, irreversible decline in organ function that occurs over time even in the absence of injury, illness, environmental risks, or poor lifestyle choices. For instance, prescribing medications for a patient with multiple health problems is more complex. A drug that might be useful in treating one health problem can make another problem worse, and be taking multiple medications can cause problematic drug interactions and side effects.

 Track 2: Aging and Gerontology

Critical Gerontology is concerned with physical, mental- social aspects and implications of aging. The field of gerontology is actually quite broad, containing many professionals who focus on various aspects of aging and development. While it could be considered as one large field, it actually consists of many smaller fields all working together with a united focus on middle-aged and older adults.

Track 3: Chronic Disease in Elderly

Chronic diseases have a serious impact on the health of an elderly people. There are so many chronic conditions that seem to afflict older persons of their mistaken perception example; glaucoma, lung disease, osteoporosis, macular degeneration, cardiovascular disease.

Track 4: Geriatric Nutrition

Changes associated with normal aging increase nutritional risk for older adults. Nutrition has a major role in protecting health and slowing disease progression. Paradigms that promote the nutritional components of healthy aging are needed to increase the age of chronic degenerative disease onset and to maintain healthy, functional lives for as long as possible. At this time, there is a tremendous disconnecting between nutrition and how it is implemented into healthcare. While it is widely agreed upon that micronutrients play a large role in promoting health and preventing disease, meeting the nutritional needs of elderly persons, whether they are or are not living in institutionalized settings, is a great challenge. Micronutrient deficiencies are common in elderly people due to a number of factors such as reduced food intake, lack of variety in the foods they eat, medications that deplete nutrients and create side effects, the price of foods rich in micronutrients, and the deplorable food choices available in the institutional setting. Additionally, the elderly often suffer from anorexia of aging, because the hormones leptin and ghrelin increase as you age, leading to prolonged satiety and suppressed hunger, which can lead to calorie deficit and malnutrition. It is necessary to eat foods that are nutrient dense. People over the age of 60 have much less of the friendly bacteria in their gut, making them more susceptible to gastrointestinal infections and bowel conditions such as irritable bowel syndrome. Supplementing with products that contain healthy bacteria such as lactobacillus acidophilus and bifidobacterium are helpful.

Track 5: Geriatric Endocrinology and Diabetes

Significant advances in wellbeing and social prosperity have prompted linear gains in life expectancy and a going with increment in the burden imposed by age-related morbidities. Complex adjustments in hormonal networks which control homeostasis and survival may underlie this poor adjustment to later life. Both the menopause and subclinical thyroid disease show the trouble in turning around endocrine changes in later life. In old age (?60– 65 years of age), Diabetes mellitus is becoming an alarming public health issue. Among the elderly population, type 2 diabetes is a growing issue, and a bigger extent of recently analysed diabetics is older. Treating diabetes among the elderly can introduce unique difficulties. Different disabilities related with ageing can add to the unpredictability of entirely self-managing diabetes. Among this age group, analysed diabetes is anticipated to achieve 26.7 million by 2050. The commonness of diabetes among elderly is anticipated to increase to 14% to 33% by 2050. Targeted interventions and extended surveillance and research and better arrangements are expected to address the quickly developing diabetes burden among older adults. In elderly with endocrine disorders, management will be person-centered and objectives of care will focus on change of function and quality of life inside the social context and care setting of the person.

Track 6: Geriatric Rehabilitation

With increased age, patients regularly confront numerous physical and emotional changes that can influence level of function and well-being. Rehabilitation keeps up functional independence in the elderly. Rehabilitation of geriatric patients is basic for the patients' wellbeing and for society. Geriatric rehabilitation additionally have a role in transitional care, where patients are alluded by a hospital or family doctor, when there is a prerequisite to give hospital based short term intensive physical therapy went for the recuperation of musculoskeletal function, especially recovery from joint, ligament, or tendon repair. Finally, geriatric rehabilitation impacts the growing life expectancy around the world. Adherence to an activity program impacts frailty, speed, ability to live independently, and the best part is life expectancy. The geriatric rehabilitation incorporates an extensive variety of medications and therapeutic help for a variety of ailments that the aged face. Geriatric rehabilitation incorporate exercise, adaptive techniques, assistive technologies, physical modalities, and orthotic (braces, splints) and prosthetic devices. Rehabilitation is a basic part of geriatric healthcare, on the grounds that debilitating conditions, which are normal among older adults, significantly influence their quality of life and are manageable to treatment.

Track 7: Geriatric Health Medicine

 

Geriatric medicine especially centers its focus on health care of elderly people. Its objective is to promote health by preventing and treating diseases and disabilities in older adults. It offers a more holistic approach to patient care than organ-based internal-medicine specialties. At this time, researchers finalized that, geriatric medicine is apart from a standard adult medicine which deals with elderly people disorders, diseases, and medication, and also specialized in the health care of old, preventing and treating them in the right way.  So, this conference can help to team up with the approaches of geriatricians, nurse, nutritionist, physician assistant, geriatric psychiatrists to explore ideas which will be useful in continuing further research.

Track 8: Geriatrics Associated Neurocognitive Disorders

Elderly with neuro-cognitive disorders (NCDs) present with variable level of severity of cognitive deficits which may be related to some or more domains of cognitive abilities. These domains include memory, orientation, learning, comprehension, judgment, emotional control, inability to initiate/ perform an activity etc. NCDs are categorized as delirium, dementia, amnestic, and other cognitive disorders in Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders. Further, given a new diagnostic category of NCDs in DSM-5 and the subsections incorporated delirium, major NCDs (which were earlier labeled as dementia), and a new category of mild NCD. Dementia is one of the most common NCD and its prevalence show a frightening statistics. As the illness progresses the condition of patients worsen and at times care givers experience significant burden. Early recognition and consultation generally leads to a better management and thus, familiarity with issues related to cognitive decline as well as its epidemiology, screening, and management in handling the catastrophe is very much needed.

Track 9: Geriatric Oncology

Geriatric oncology is a branch of medicine that is concerned with the diagnosis and treatment of cancer in the elderly, usually defined as aged 65 and older. This fairly young but increasingly important subspecialty incorporates the special needs of the elderly into the treatment of cancer.

In the last few years, this particular subspecialty has received a lot of attention. A large proportion of the population of developed countries are aging. In the United States, 20% of the population will be older than 65 years of age by the year 2030. Those 85 years and older will be the most rapidly growing group. This is compounded by the fact that the majority of cancer patients will be in this age group. Age in itself is one of the most important risk factors for developing cancer. Currently, 60% of newly diagnosed malignant tumors and 70% of cancer deaths occur in people aged 65 years or older. Many cancers are linked to aging these include breast, colorectal, prostate, pancreatic, lung, bladder and stomach cancers.

Track 10: Geriatric Palliative Care

 

Palliative Care is a multidisciplinary way to deal with specific medical and nursing care for individuals with life-constraining sicknesses. It centers around giving relief from the manifestations, torment, physical pressure, and mental worry of a terminal diagnosis. The objective is to enhance personal satisfaction for both the individual and their family. Palliative care is given by a group of doctors, medical attendants, nurses, physiotherapists, word related advisors and other health experts who cooperate with the essential care doctor and specialists and hospice staff to give extra help. It is appropriate at any age and at any phase in a genuine sickness and can be given as the fundamental objective of care or alongside healing treatment. Despite the fact that it is a vital piece of end-of-life mind, it isn't restricted to that stage. Palliative care can be given over different settings incorporating into healing centers, at home, as a major aspect of group palliative care programs, and in gifted nursing offices. Interdisciplinary palliative care groups work with individuals and their families to elucidate objectives of care and give side effect administration, psycho-social, and otherworldly help.

Track 11: Alzheimer’s & Neurodegenerative Disease

 Alzheimer's declines after some time. Alzheimer's is a dynamic illness, where dementia indications step by step decline over various years. In its beginning times, memory misfortune is gentle, yet with late-arrange Alzheimer's, people lose the capacity to bear on a discussion and react to their condition. Alzheimer's is the 6th driving reason for death in the United States. Those with Alzheimer's experience a normal of eight years after their side effects end up perceptible to others, however, survival can go from four to 20 years, contingent upon age and other wellbeing conditions.

Track 12: Geriatric Psychiatry

Geriatric psychiatry, also known as geropsychiatry, psychogeriatrics or psychiatry of old age, is a subspecialty of psychiatry dealing with the study, prevention, and treatment of mental disorders in humans with old age. After a 4-year residency in psychiatry, a psychiatrist can complete a one-year fellowship in geriatric psychiatry. As the population ages, particularly in developing countries, this field is becoming more needed. The diagnosis, treatment and management of dementia and depression are two areas of this field.

Track 13: Aging & Rejuvenation

 

Rejuvenation is a medical discipline focused on the practical reversal of the aging process. Rejuvenation is distinct from life extension. Life extension strategies often study the causes of aging and try to oppose those causes in order to slow aging. Rejuvenation is the reversal of aging and thus requires a different strategy, namely repair of the damage that is associated with aging or replacement of damaged tissue with new tissue. Rejuvenation can be a means of life extension, but most life extension strategies do not involve rejuvenation.

Track 14: Ageing Technology

With a standpoint to future potential outcomes and early innovations in the fields of robotics, smart sensors, neural interfaces, and computerized reasoning, technology has come a long way. Targets and Prerequisites to build up the role of technology for ageing, it is necessary first to consider the foundational goals and requirements, preoccupied from a specific mechanical approach usage, for a protected and safe environment. It is well known fact that technology has great impact on health care and can support the ageing population ranging from digital tools to artificial intelligence. For instance, patients would now be able to utilize virtual reality for physical exercise and pain treatment, a clinical outcome resulting from telemedicine.

Track 15: Life Extension Science

Life extension science(anti-ageing medicine) can also be termed as uncertain life augmentation, exploratory gerontology, and biomedical gerontology, is defined as the investigation of slowing down or reversing the procedures of ageing to broaden both the most extreme and normal life expectancy. The capacity to accomplish this, be that as it may, does not presently exist. A few specialists around there, and "life extensionists", "immortalists" or "longevists" (the individuals who wish to accomplish longer lives themselves), trust that future breakthroughs in tissue restoration, undifferentiated cells, regenerative drug, sub-atomic repair, quality treatment, pharmaceuticals, and organ substitution (for example, with artificial organs or xenotransplantations) will in the end enable people to have inconclusive life expectancies (agerasia) through complete rejuvenation to a well youthful condition. The moral implications, if life augmentation turns into a possibility, are argued by bioethicists. The expansion of life has been a want of mankind and a pillar theme ever.

Market Analysis

Market Study of Geriatrics in USA | Europe | Middle East | Asia Pacific:

By 2030, it is estimated that the US population of people age 65 and over will double, making up over 20% or about 70 million of the country’s population. As the baby boomers enter the geriatric population, this has the potential to enormously escalate the nation’s already high health care costs. The U.S. population is “graying” at a rapid rate. According to data published by the United Nations in 2014, it has been estimated that by the year 2022, approximately 35% of the population would be above 60 years of age.In Europe 2013 the population of the EU (28 countries) was roughly 507 million. Projections show a rise in the European population of over 18 million (3.6%) in the next 35 years, with the population peaking in 2050 at 525.5 million. The median age in Europe has risen by 8.3 years in the last half a century, from 31.5 in 1960 to 39.8 in 2010. It is projected to rise by another 7.4 years, to 47.2, by 2050. The percentage of Europeans aged over 65 is projected to rise from 16.0% in 2017 to 29.3% in 2050. The European population aged over 80 is set to rise significantly. In 1960 just 1.4% of Europeans were over 80. This figure reached 4.1% in 2010 and is projected to increase to 11.5% by 2050. The Middle East will develop rapidly aging populations within the next few decades. Many factors has resulted in increase in the elderly including improvement in living standards, the curbing of communicable disease, and the latest breakthroughs in medical science. The World Health Organization, estimates that from 2000 to 2050, the rate of growth of the population above age 65 is projected to be 4%–5%, and the average annual growth rate of the oldest old (85 years and older) will exceed 5% in eleven Arab countries. The Asia-Pacific region is undergoing profound and rapid population changes. All countries in Asia and the Pacific are in the process of ageing at an unprecedented pace, although the timing and pace of this transition varies across the region. In 2016, approximately 12.4 per cent of the population in the region was 60 years or older, but this is projected to increase to more than a quarter or 1.3 billion people by 2050. By 2050, nearly 8 in 10 of the world’s older population will live in the less developed regions. This is especially pertinent for a region such as Asia and the Pacific.

Scope and Importance:

 

The world’s older population continues to grow at an unprecedented rate. Today, 8.5 percent of people worldwide (617 million) are aged 65 and over. According to a new report this percentage is projected to jump to nearly 17 percent of the world’s population by 2050 (1.6 billion). Population ageing is poised to become one of the most significant social transformations of the twenty-first century, with implications for nearly all sectors of society, including labour and financial markets, the demand for goods and services, such as housing, transportation and social protection, as well as family structures and intergenerational ties. the number of older persons — those aged 60 years or over — is expected to more than double by 2050 and to more than triple by 2100, rising from 962 million globally in 2017 to 2.1 billion in 2050 and 3.1 billion in 2100. Globally, population aged 60 or over is growing faster than all younger age groups. In 2017, there are an estimated 962 million people aged 60 or over in the world, comprising 13 per cent of the global population. The population aged 60 or above is growing at a rate of about 3 per cent per year. Currently, Europe has the greatest percentage of population aged 60 or over (25 per cent). Rapid ageing will occur in other parts of the world as well, so that by 2050 all regions of the world except Africa will have nearly a quarter or more of their populations at ages 60 and above. The number of older persons in the world is projected to be 1.4 billion in 2030 and 2.1 billion in 2050, and could rise to 3.1 billion in 2100.


Why Tokyo-Japan?


According to OECD statistics on health expenditure by country, the healthcare market in Japan ranks third in the world, following the United States and China. Market growth factors include the graying population and consequent increase of home-based care, and the rise of chronic diseases coming from changes in life style. With respect to the percentage of senior citizens aged 65 years or older, Japan ranks top in the world. A notable feature is that society is aging faster than that of the western nations, with it projected that seniors will make up about 40 percent of the population by 2050. Cancer, heart disease and other lifestyle diseases account for about 60 percent of deaths, and the number of deaths from cancer is increasing annually. Lifestyle related diseases account for about 30 percent of national healthcare expenditures. 

The number of such patients is forecasted to increase further with the surge in the elderly population. If this trend continues, it is expected that there will also be a rapid increase in the number of patients with lifestyle diseases in 2022 when the baby boomers start turning 75. The Japanese government positions the healthcare sector as a key industry, and is implementing various measures. In order to develop innovative drugs and medical devices, the Japan Agency for Medical Research and Development (AMED) was established in April 2015 for integrated management of R&D budgets. The development of drugs and medical devices is also promoted from the institutional side, including the introduction of a preferential treatment system for approval of products for regenerative medicine, drugs for rare diseases, and diagnostic reagents. On the other hand, soaring medical expenditure resulting from the growing elderly population is of issue. In order to curb healthcare expenses, the national government is working to further the use of generic drugs and is also advancing initiatives for preventive medicine, including vaccinations, regular health checkups and screening tests. Japan is also engaged in promoting the introduction of ICT in the health, medical, and long-term care sector with the aim of enhancing both quality and efficiency of health care, and is advancing measures such as establishing a medical information and collaboration network.
