22 HOSP: Identify hazards of hospitalizations

22. Identify potential hazards of hospitalization for all older adult patients (including immobility, delirium, medication side effects, malnutrition, pressure ulcers, procedures, peri and post operative periods, transient urinary incontinence, and hospital acquired infections) and identify potential prevention strategies.

Abstract: 

Module#1: Skin - This is the first of a series of highly interactive modules to teach the normal changes of aging and the clinical implications of these aging-related changes via histology.   A highlight of these modules are side by side comparison of young and aged tissues with interactive slides and summary drawings which reinforce the main points on the histology slides.   The curriculum is appealing to clinical learners as it is anchored in showing clinically relevant changes and the implications of these changes in older patients. The main audience is the pre-clinical first or second year medical student, but these could be used by other trainees.  For example, the skin module would be an excellent review for a dermatology residency program and all of the modules could be used in geriatrics fellowship programs to teach the basic science of aging.

Educational objectives: 

Learning Objectives for skin module:

Identify the major aging associated changes in each of the following layers and parts of skin and describe the clinical implications of these changes:

  1. Epidermis
  2. Dermis
  3. Pilo-sebacaous Units (Hair Follicles, Sebaceous Glands)
  4. Sweat Glands
  5. Sensory Compenents (Pacinian and Meissner’s Corpuscles)
  6. Subcuteanous/ (Subdermis/Hypodermis)

Abstract: 

This product is an interactive web-based module on delirium. Delirium is presented within a systems-based practice framework. The module focuses on recognition, management and prevention of delirium. Users follow a patient from admission to discharge. It emphasizes “how-to” clinical skills including performing Mini-Cog and CAM on patients. It includes a multiple choice questionnaire and a certificate of completion for the learner’s portfolio. It may be used by a wide range of learners including medical students and residents from internal medicine, family practice, and surgical subspecialties.

Educational objectives: 
  1. Review the clinical significance of delirium
  2. Outline an evidence-based clinical approach to the confused patient in the hospital
  3. Outline an effective work-up based on known and most likely etiologies
  4. Educate learners on clinical tools such as the CAM and the Min-Cog
  5. Address delirium within a systems-based framework
  6. Provide risk assessment and illustrate how to prevent delirium
Additional information/Special implementation requirements or guidelines: 

Self-directed internet -based learning module. Module has audio so speakers or headphones are required.

Product Information
Abstract: 

This pocket teaching card is designed for ward-based teaching and hospitalized-based care of geriatric patients. 

Educational objectives: 

Goal: Learners will provide appropriate assessment, intervention, and follow-up for their hospitalized geriatric patients.

Objectives:

  1. Learners will demonstrate their knowledge of appropriate assessment by determining the baseline of their geriatric patients in cognition, gait, and ability to carry out ADLs and IADLs.
  2. Learners will demonstrate appropriate interventions to prevent iatrogenic disorders.
  3. Learners will be able to identify events in their geriatric patients that necessitate transfer to a higher level of care.
  4. Learners will know basic steps to recognize, prevent, and care for delirium, pneumonia, heart failure.
  5. Learners will be able to provide basic pre- and perioperative care for geriatric patients.
  6. Learners will provide appropriate discharge plans for geriatric patients.

Abstract: 

This manual for a resident rotation in geriatric anesthesia summarizes the current literature and controversies in geriatric anesthesiology and perioperative care of older patients.

Educational objectives: 

Goal: Anesthesiology residents will provide optimal anesthesiology care for the geriatric patient.

Objectives:

  1. Describe the specific challenges of anesthesia with regards to geriatric patients and use this knowledge to optimize perioperative care of the elderly.
  2. Residents will be able to reference and cite literature for making decisions to manage risk and provide appropriate perioperative care for geriatric patients.
  3. Residents will be able to identify risk factors and anesthestic choices that predispose towards postoperative cognitive dysfunction
  4. Residents will be able to identify ethical challenges in meeting the perioperative care for geriatric patients.
