Hello! As you read this letter, our annual meeting of the Canadian Geriatrics Society has just wound down. It was a fantastic conference, and all the abstracts from the excellent research presented in Toronto are included in this issue of the Journal.

I am pleased to present the spring issue of the Canadian Geriatrics Journal . In this issue we have a wide variety of topics including an examination of the use of fall narratives in an older adult falls clinic (C. Wong, et al .) and a review of the issues surrounding the aging population from a global perspective (H. Bergman, et al. ). We also have included a study by S. Rej, et al . examining the impact of antidepressants on the risk of lithium-induced hypernatremia, and a descriptive study by L. Kumeliauskas, et al . of the characteristics of patients admitted to hospital with “failure to thrive.” Dr. Z. Ismail has also conducted a survey of the types of cognitive screening instruments used by Canadian psychiatrists during their assessments.

Have a great Spring!
