Workshop

BECOMING A MULTIPLE CHRONIC CONDITIONS (MCCS) RESEARCH CHAMPION

  • Date:
  • Time: 7:30am - 8:30am
  • Track: Research
  • CME/CE: 1.0

Sponsored by the AGS/AGING LEARNING Collaborative, an R25 grant from the National Institute on Aging (NIA)
This interactive workshop will prepare mid to senior level faculty to be Champions of Multiple Chronic Conditions (MCCs) Research. The workshop is designed to introduce learners to the new AGS/AGING Learning Curriculum on MCC Research with the goal of encouraging use of the curriculum at their own institutions using the MCC Research Champion Toolkit. By taking part in the Champion workshop, and actively engaging in disseminating the AGS/AGING Learning Curriculum with others, MCC Research Champions have an opportunity to leverage their unique knowledge, skills and enthusiasm to encourage research on MCCs that will ultimately translate into the delivery of higher quality care across the lifespan.

ELDER FINANCIAL EXPLOITATION – FROM BENCH TO BEDSIDE

  • Date:
  • Time: 7:30am - 8:30am
  • Track: Clinical Practice
  • CME/CE: 1.0

Moderator: Laura A. Mosqueda, MD
Sponsored by the Ethics Committee and the Elder Abuse Special Interest Group
An estimated 7% of older adults experience financial exploitation annually in the United States. This is likely an underestimation, making it one of the most common forms of elder mistreatment. In this session, three experts from the fields of Elder Mistreatment and Financial Exploitation will share the most recent evidence and expert practices from basic science to the bedside.  Learning Objectives: (1) judge the rationale and future promise of using neuroimaging as a tool to understand financial exploitation vulnerability in older adults; (2) assess for financial decision-making capacity in a vulnerable older adult experiencing or at risk for financial exploitation; (3) identify racial, ethnic, and cultural differences in financial exploitation experience and perception of harm that may be present in diverse populations; and (4) formulate a culturally tailored intervention and prevention plan for the serially financially exploited adult by overcoming barriers and leveraging community-based strategies and national resources.
