The American Geriatrics Society (AGS)’s Geriatrics-for-Specialists Initiative (GSI) is a multi-specialty effort to improve the quality and safety of care provided to hospitalized older adults through education, research programs, and efforts to change educational policies. The materials located in these 8 toolkits represent the innovative ways the grantees of the Geriatrics for Specialty Residents (GSR), a project of the GSI, have incorporated geriatrics into their curriculum.
These educational tools address unique aspects of older adults. The framework for each specialty toolkit has been created by specialty/geriatrician teams that have overseen the development of that toolkit in order to be consistent with how other faculty in their discipline might look for materials to use in training.
