The Polish President, Mr. Andzrej Duda, tried Surgical Science’s simulators at CMKP Center, Warsaw. The president visited the center, together with Minister of Health, Katarzyna Sójka, to sign the Act of Special Geriatric Care, which aims to provide a comprehensive approach to diagnosing and treating older patients. He had an opportunity to experience our LAP Mentor VR and watch our ENDO Mentor Suite simulators in action.
The Act on Special Geriatric Care by President Andrzej Duda, aims to provide specialized healthcare services for individuals aged 75 and above, acknowledging the urgent need to address the growing elderly population in Poland. The act outlines the establishment of over 300 “Centra 75+” centers across the country, equipped with geriatric care coordinators and consultants to offer comprehensive care, advice, and rehabilitation services. President Duda emphasized that this systematic approach to geriatric care is crucial, given the projected demographic shift, with experts estimating that by 2050, 16.5% of Poland’s population will be aged 75 or older.
