The Malaysian Society of Geriatric Medicine has published three position statements to date. These position statements are intended to inform healthcare professionals about the society's stand on topical issues pertinent to the health of older Malaysians. We hope that all stakeholders and any other interested parties are able to make use of our position statements to lobby for local resources and to inform clinical practice wherever they work.
Please feel free to suggest future topics and we will try to accommodate your requests.
