Educational objectives: 

With use of this pocket card, learners should be able to:

  1. Diagnose polypharmacy occurence in patients of all ages
  2. Explain the adverse consequences associated with polypharmacy
  3. Manage patients' medication lists by stopping and starting medications appropriately
  4. Apply validated resources to decrease polypharmacy such as the Beers Citeria and the MAI
Additional information/Special implementation requirements or guidelines: 

Uses:

  1. The card is most commonly discussed and handed to learners in real time evalutaion of medication reconciliation and order writing during admission day rounds.
  2. The card has been used in the manner of "educational detailing" for raising awareness of polypharmacy and giving tools for immediate intervention.
  3. The card has been used by trainees to teach other trainees about polypharmacy as they move onto other services.
  4. The card is used as a supplement to polypharmacy lectures given to medical students, house officers, and fellows in different teaching venues.

Educational objectives: 
  1. Discuss the principle of autonomy as an ethical standard, as it relates to medical decision making, and in contrast with the principle of beneficence.
  2. Define the medical ethics principle of justice.
  3. Relate examples of ambiguous distributive justice.
  4. Explain the principle of informed consent as an ethical standard, as it relates to medical decision making.
  5. Discuss the clinical situations in which life-sustaining treatment might alter one's choice of management.
  6. Describe the clinical situations in which medical futility might alter one's choice of management.
  7. Describe the important medical treatment options which must often be considered by older adults and their surrogate decision makers.
  8. Describe how one would assess a patient for decision making capacity (decisional capacity).
  9. Recommend appropriate courses of action for patients and family members as exemplified by the case studies.

Educational objectives: 
  1. Explain the relevance of aging principles of care for all career paths that a student may choose .
  2. Describe three specialty-specific geriatric facts related to your specialty career choice.
