Abstract: 

Geriatric Fast Facts (GFFs) [www.geriatricfastfacts.com] is a mobile enabled website which contains 1-2 page concise, peer-reviewed evidence-based educational summaries on key geriatrics topics to increase medical knowledge.

GFF Quizzes are quick, online assessment tools paired with GFF content, to be used by learners at the point of care to assess knowledge of geriatric content aligned with ACGME Milestones.  Design elements include quiz content searchable by topic, links to corresponding GFFs, MCQ/ short answer question formats and ability to include images. Learners enter brief demographic information to start (institution, email of self and up to 1 other) allowing annotated score results, displayed immediately after quiz completion, to be sent to themselves and one other individual (faculty, program director). These quick quizzes, available on hand held mobile devices at the point of care, linked to GFF content provide learners and program directors information of learner knowledge assessment linked to ACGME Milestones.

Educational objectives: 

The Geriatric Fast Fact (GFF) quizzes, available on hand held mobile devices at the point of care, linked to GFF content will provide learners and program directors information of learner knowledge assessment linked to ACGME Milestones.
