Other Learning Resource Type:
The Geriatric Gems and Palliative Pearls (Gems & Pearls) mobile app was developed to enhance clinician knowledge and skills in the care of older adults. Gems & Pearls Lite contains brief learning points based on AAMC/ACMGE competencies on geriatric and/or palliative topics. The topic areas include current issues in aging, approaches to the patient, care systems, geriatric syndromes, geriatric psychiatry, and diseases and disorders. The web-based Apple platform mobile application provides ease of use on various mobile platforms and the convenience of having geriatric medical information just a few clicks away, regardless of location.
The mobile device will assist with:
1. Providing access to geriatric and palliative knowledge.
2. Describing fundamental biomedical aspects of aging, geriatric assessment, and care coordination.
3. Providing geriatric educators with a bedside teaching tool.
