This meeting is open to anyone who provides or is interested in providing geriatric medicine consultative services across all care settings. Participants will have an opportunity to learn from other practitioners how geriatrics consultative services are provided in various clinical settings. Discussion topics will include the extent to which our services are in demand; the types of patients whom we are asked to see; various collaborative efforts with other services; billing processes and concerns; incorporating geriatrics teaching within the consultative setting; and types of problems we encounter. All participants have the opportunity to join a listserv uniting members throughout the year wishing to stay connected for further collaboration, dissemination of knowledge, and to request assistance from like-minded colleagues when facing difficult challenges. This year's meeting as in past will offer time to learn from expert geriatrics consultants along with valuable time to collaborate with fellow attendees.
