This unit covers practical and critical information on the evaluation and management of endocrine disorders in the elderly, including: adrenal, thyroid, diabetes and Paget's disease. CME credit is available for this product. For more information, please contact the author.
Upon completion the learner will gain practical and critical information in the evaluation and management of adrenal and thyroid disorders, diabetes and Paget's disease. Upon completion of Module 1, the learner will be able to: 1) Describe the diagnosis and management of diabetes in the elderly 2) List the modifications of DM therapy for the frail and chronically ill elderly Upon completion of Module 2, the learner will be able to: 1) Describe the evaluation and treatment of hypothyroidism in the elderly 2) Describe the evaluation and treatment of hyperthyroidism in the elderly 3) List the evaluation and treatment of nodular thyroid disease and thyroid cancer Upon completion of Module 3, the learner will be able to: 1) Describe the evaluation and treatment of hypoadrenocorticalism in the elderly 2) Describe the evaluation and treatment of hyperadrenocorticalism in the elderly 3) List the evaluation and treatment of Paget's disease
Additional information/Special implementation requirements or guidelines:
Implementation For lecture presentation: There are no special implementation requirements other than familiarity with the technology to use PowerPoint. Presenters should be comfortable enough with content to facilitate a robust discussion. For use in distance learning: The material was originally adapted to Blackboard learning systems, however using the Power Point system as we have, it can be adapted to many distance based learning system. We recommend for optimal learning that the presentation have speaker voicing ( audio) to explain the slides and the learner also have the ability to read the lecture notes. Benefits and Practical Tips For lecture and self learning: The 15-20 minute modular format is concise and partialized, allowing presenters to select the most relevant information for their audience. For use in distance learning: Our feedback is that the 15-20 minute segments are popular, the learners cite that it less intimidating to do, the questions at the end create a break and closure and the 1 hour credit for completion of the three module unit is attained "painlessly".
