After three years of hard work, the editors of the third edition of the Oxford Textbook of Geriatric Medicine set out to review the key future features of twenty-first century geriatric medicine. We suspect however, that some important, emerging topics could be missing because of the recent rapid progress in basic science, epidemiology, clinical diagnosis, biomarker research, therapeutic innovations, and clinical trials. Nevertheless, we believe that the major issues in geriatric medicine have been carefully analysed and developed within each of the chapters in this textbook. In this endnote we congratulate all the outstanding contributors and key opinion leaders in geriatrics who have devoted their time, passion, and friendship to benefit the readers of this third edition of one of the world’s most read geriatric textbooks.
