STEALTH GERIATRICS: AN INTERPROFESSIONAL APPROACH TO INCORPORATING GERIATRICS IN NON-TRADITIONAL VENUES

Symposia

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

Sponsored by the Teachers Section and Education Committee 
Moderator: Rebecca Starr, MD, AGSF
This interactive symposium is divided into four multi-media presentations, which will provide tools to help educators integrate geriatrics content into existing curricula without explicitly having a geriatric course or rotation.  Learning Objectives: (1) compare and contrast IP models and a mapping process for integrating geriatrics content in traditional and non-traditional venues throughout a health profession curriculum; (2) identify advantages and disadvantages of using “unlabeled’ geriatrics training materials; (3) develop at least one “take home” opportunity to apply concepts of integration at home institution; and (4) identify areas of partnership within your institution to develop your curriculum.
