More and more older people are coming to the Emergency Department (ED). Older people are longer in the ED and have a greater chance of admission, which causes organizational problems that often make in the news. But older people also have a greater chance of other undesirable outcomes, such as mortality or loss of self-reliance. They present themselves more often with atypical complaints, or with complaints that are specific to older people, such as falls or confusion.
The APOP screening program has been developed to improve the outcomes for older people visiting the ED by providing extra care. On this website you will find all information about the APOP screening program.
