Qatar’s Second Geriatric International Conference will be a 3-day conference delivered virtually. Most sessions are didactic lecture series with a few interactive sessions along with workshops. Interactive sessions will be in the form of panel discussions with delegates proactively taking part in the discussion. Hands-on Workshops will be pre-recorded videos which will be displayed in real time by the same faculty to encourage the delegates to ask the questions as it is displayed. Delegates will be at all times encouraged to be interactive to meet the requirement outlined by the QCHP for virtual CPD events.
