Abstract

Although the current low workforce availability of care of the elderly (COE) physicians, geriatric medicine specialists, and geriatric psychiatrists is undeniable, the ongoing demographic shift means this situation will only worsen. This evolving crisis is outlined clearly in the article “Updated Inventory and Projected Requirements for Specialist Physicians in Geriatrics” by Basu et al. found in this issue of the Canadian Geriatrics Journal.
