Abstract: 

This program is a team based learning program we use with our third year medical students in our longitudinal integrated curriculum. Both the facilitator and student version are included. The IRAT and GRAT cover broad areas of dementia and delirium including the diagnosis of postoperative delirium in a patient with dementia, interventions to prevent & treat delirium, outcomes of delirium, the pharmacologic treatment of Alzheimer’s disease, distinguishing mild cognitive impairment from Alzheimer’s disease, and the principles of comprehensive care for dementia patients. The application exercise is a case which requires synthesis and analysis as a team and requires considerations in comprehensive care of the patient.

Educational objectives: 

After completing this material you will be able to:

  1. Diagnose postoperative delirium in a patient with dementia.
  2. Describe interventions to prevent & treat delirium.
  3. Describe outcomes of delirium.
  4. Understand the pharmacologic treatment of Alzheimer’s disease.
  5. Differentiate mild cognitive impairment from Alzheimer’s disease.
  6. Apply principles of comprehensive care for dementia patients.

Abstract: 

This self-directed learning assignment was created to complement the required 2-week ambulatory geriatrics curriculum for PGY1’s at the University of Chicago.  Learners are first asked to reflect on a previous patient encounter during which they struggled whether to recommend routine cancer screening.  Then they complete a required reading assignment.  Next, they are asked to choose a patient from their own continuity clinic panel and a type of cancer screening, and assess whether this would be appropriate for the particular patient based on their age, life expectancy, preferences, and goals of care.  They are also asked to elaborate on the benefits and risks of screening.

Educational objectives: 
  1. Learn what the cancer screening guideline recommendations are for colon, breast, and cervical cancer
  2. Learn how to estimate an older patient’s life expectancy
  3. Appreciate the benefits and risks of routine cancer screening
  4. Incorporate patient’s preference and goals of care into whether or not to recommend cancer screening in older patients
  5. Appreciate the challenges of recommending cancer screening in older patients

Anatomy Image Atlas of Aging: Liver

Estimated time to complete:

Abstract: 

The Image Atlas of Aging is an original UMMS educational product developed to highlight the normal age-related anatomic and histological changes within the digestive system. The Image Atlas of Aging is a PowerPoint module that features normal gross and histological images to model the aging liver and to serve as an easily replicated prototype to eventually incorporate other organs and organ systems. The module introduces the principle of homeostenosis as a function of aging that emphasizes that aging is neither equivalent to disease nor does it signify inevitable disease. This original geriatrics content has been integrated into the first year medical student “Development, Structure, and Function” (DSF) course curriculum.

Educational objectives: 

After completion of this module, the MS1 learner will be expected to:

  • explain that liver disease is not a part of normal aging
  • differentiate normal anatomic, physiologic, and histological differences between the young and aged liver
  • define the principle of homeostenosis, illustrating how the hepatic portal system becomes more susceptible to acute injury with the loss of age-related functional reserve
Additional information/Special implementation requirements or guidelines: 

Formal on-going discussions are held with the UMMS Development, Structure, and Function (DSF) course directors, who review the modules to strategize best integration to the DSF curriulum. Additionally, UMMS geriatricians teach from the Image Atlas modules in the anatomy lab each fall.

This self-directed, web-based, interactive educational module addresses the evaluation and management of back pain in older adults. The audience for this module is anyone who provides care (both out-patient and in-patient) for older adults with back pain.

Educational objectives: 

1) Summarize the prevalence and impact of back pain in older persons.

2) Describe how to clinically evaluate back pain including a detailed examination.

3) List the differential diagnosis of back pain in older persons.

4) Explain how to manage the most common etiologies of back pain in older adults.

4) Summarize the risks, benefits and guidelines for specific pharmacologic management of back pain in older adults and how to minimize and monitor for adverse effects.

5) Summarize the various non-pharmacological approaches to managing back pain.

6) Describe which situations are appropriate for referral to more specialized care.
