Geriatric EM (GERI)
Saturday, May 27th

Clinical care of older adults remains challenging in all Emergency Departments (ED). However, the needs of older adults can be complex and specific training is often lacking. This course will address core clinical Geriatric EM content and give tips and tools to facilitate management of complex geriatric patients in the ED. The learner will benefit from knowledge and experiences about common geriatric presentations in the ED and will gain confidence in managing them. The course is intended for ED clinicians, both MDs and advanced practice providers (NPs, PAs).
Participants in this course will be better informed, better equipped, and more comfortable as clinicians in managing the challenging presentations of older ED patients. This course provides a modern approach to CPD by implementing the flipped classroom technique. You will receive 10 video modules to watch at your leisure, prior to attending the course.
