The GERAS Centre is focused on providing exemplary care in geriatrics through a rapid learning health system approach, which acknowledges the fundamental linkage between research, practice, and education, and uses evidence-based strategies to provide successful point-of-care improvements. Research and education is focused in three overarching themes: Frailty, Falls & Fractures, Dementia & Delirium, and End of Life Care. 

The core themes serve as the platform for the GERAS Centre’s strategic directives:
