Four interactive geriatrics modules are available, which combine installed software with web modules. There is one module each for dementia, depression, falls, and urinary incontinence. There are video clips within the modules designed to make them more interactive for the learner. Each module builds on a case and has a focus on caring for older adults with the syndrome in the ambulatory setting. Learners have opportunity for self assessment using pre- and post-tests in each module. CME credits are available only to physicians participating in the GENI Geriatrics QI Initiative.
