The remarkable growth of the population over the age of 65 means the detection, treatment and understanding of depression in older adults are of paramount importance and a major public health concern. This conference devoted to late-life depression will bring together prominent experts in this field in order to inform you of the multiple dimensions of this complex disorder. The aim of this conference is to heighten awareness and promote interventions for older people with depression during a time when there are ongoing service changes throughout the health service.

  • Understand the distinct clinical challenges late-life depression presents
  • Understand the interaction of depression with co-morbid conditions
  • Appreciate treatment optimization both in terms of the psychological and pharmacological management of older people with depression
