The geriatric ED guideline recommendations represent best evidence and best practice-based research and consensus from the perspectives of ACEP, AGS, ENA, and SAEM. Three decades after the first SAEM Task Force recognized the challenges that an aging population would present to contemporary emergency medicine, these guidelines provide an opportunity to disseminate, adapt, and incorporate geriatric principles into the emergency medicine model of care. Effective implementation of these recommendations will positively influence the care of geriatric emergency patients for future generations.
