The Silver Tsunami – Turning Trauma Challenges into Opportunities


It is with a heavy heart that I make the announcement that we are going to postpone GEMSEM2020.

Unfortunately, COVID19 and the pandemic planning around that, has significantly impacted on many speakers’ ability to travel, and no doubt, will also effect current and potential delegates. While teleconferencing and pre-recorded videos are an option, I don’t think we can run a successful seminar day with mostly that type of presentation. We are exposed through the number of travelling speakers and delegates. We had a large number of registrations already.

The respectful thing to do is call it early.

We will postpone the event instead of cancelling it. It has shaped up to be an awesome program and would be a shame not to pursue the community building and inter-professional learning that this complex trauma population offers us.

 We are very pleased to confirm a revised date of  THURSDAY MAY 6TH 2021

If you have already registered and paid then head back to your registration confirmation email for full refund.

Alternatively, your registration will be carried forward and remain valid for next year.

On behalf of PHEMC, I’d like to take this opportunity to say how grateful I am for the support of this community building opportunity. I have gathered many new experts to my network and my ability to care for complex trauma patients has already benefited so much. Thank you.

Take Care,


Dr Mya Cubitt
