Intensive Course in Geriatric Medicine and Board Review

Description:    The Intensive Course in Geriatric Medicine and Board Review emphasizes a functional assessment
                approach to comprehensive care of older adults and is directed toward health care professionals
                who care for older persons, and toward faculty in teaching programs in geriatrics and gerontology.
                The 2008 course will be especially useful to internists and family physicians who are preparing for
                either the Examination for the Certificate of Added Qualifications in Geriatric Medicine or the
                Recertification Examination.

                Learning Objectives

                At the completion of this program, participants will be able to:

                - Identify the basic principles of geriatric medicine
                - Apply principles of geriatric assessment, geriatric pharmacology, rehabilitation, and long-term
                care to the patient care setting
                - Understand key aspects of neurology, cardiology, psychiatry, urology, pharmacology, and
                rheumatology as they apply to older patients
                - Identify psychosocial problems and ethical issues in decision-making, and formulate an approach
                to these problems
                - Comprehend the major geriatric syndromes such as incontinence, pain management,
                osteoporosis, and swallowing disorders, and explain the appropriate geriatric medicine approaches
                to them
                - Be more effective teachers of geriatrics and geriatric pharmacology to other health professionals,
                as appropriate
