Product Information
Abstract: 

Using the Assessing Care of Vulnerable Elders (or ACOVE) paradigm and the principles of Academic Detailing, Aging Q3 is developing curricula on 16 different topics for teaching residents about providing quality care to elderly patients. Aging Q3 uses a sequence of multiple interventions where residents learn and experience the practice of Geriatrics in the clinical setting with limited interruption to the process of patient care. Each ACOVE is featured for 3 months. The curriculum includes a resident lecture during one of the residents' scheduled noon conferences, a handout used by the faculty to detail the resident on the issue during precepting or rounds, a poster which is displayed strategically in resident areas of the hospital and clinic, and observed demonstration and assessment of a defined skill. Residents are "cued" to address the featured issue with their elder patients by a "Blue Sheet" which contains a few brief questions on the ACOVE topic that the Patient Care Technician or Nurse have discussed with the patient during intake. Residents are assessed pre and post on knowledge, skill, and attitude by a Survey Monkey questionnaire.

The Hospital Care and Transitions ACOVE is number 7 of 16 different curricula being developed in Aging Q3. In order to improve health care transitions and quality at hospital discharge, we developed a curriculum and grading instrument for hospital discharge summaries. All first year residents were given individualized feedback based on their own discharge summaries. In addition, we provided team-based feedback to intern and senior residents rotating on the General Internal Medicine inpatient service based on patients recently discharge from individual inpatient teams.

Educational objectives: 

1. Demonstrate the inclusion of necessary components of a high quality discharge summary.

2. Write an increased number of high quality discharge summaries.

Abstract: 

"Introduction to Geriatric Assessments" teaches second year medical students the fundamentals of a geriatric assessment through a 45 min. lecture and 6 simulated patient encounters followed by a 360 degree evaluation by student, preceptor and simulated patient (SP). The SP encounters involve administering common geriatric screening tests and address: depression (GDS), communicating with a caregiver (dementia), assessing physical function (gait assessment), assessing cognition (MMSE), health literacy and initiating an advance directives discussion. Students' clinical skills and discreet interviewing skills are assessed. Materials provided here include: a facilitator's guide, lecture slides with speaker's notes, a pocket reference card, and SP case information and instructions, door charts and evaluation instruments corresponding to each patient case. 

The Case Instructions are available to verified faculty members upon request according to our Restricted Access Policy. If interested, please send an email toEditor@POGOe.org.

Educational objectives: 

Following "Introduction to Geriatric Assessments," second year medical students will be able to:

  1. recognize and utilize screening tools for the assessment of common geriatric syndromes.
  2. demonstrate appropriate communication skills for interviewing a geriatric patient and/or caregiver. 
Additional information/Special implementation requirements or guidelines: 

This curriculum is part of  GATE ("Geriatrics and Aging through Transitional Environments"), a longitudinal, competency-based curriculum for medical students, and was piloted in 2010 at the University of Chicago Pritzker School of Medicine. The M1 curriculum teaches students how to obtain a functional history and understand independent living and assisted living environments. The M3 curriculum addresses geriatric care in the hospital, and M4 training examines care in the nursing home setting. GATE includes a comprehensive and integrated evaluation process measuring knowledge, attitudes and skills. GATE for M3 and M4 incorporates supplemental materials available on POGOe and developed by other Reynolds grantee institutions.

Abstract: 

An OSCE examination was developed that evaluates assessment and evaluation of a geriatric patient suffering from urinary incontinence.  The OSCE allows for evaluation of communication and history taking skills as well as for a focused physical examination.   A voiding diary is reviewed with assessment of this diary completed.  A differential diagnosis must be given along with a detailed evaluation and treatment plan.  In addition, basic knowledge of bladder function and incontinence is assessed.

Educational objectives: 

 

1.      To evaluate the learner’s ability to effectively communicate with a geriatric patient and obtain a thorough history.

2.      To assess the learner’s ability to interpret a voiding diary.

3.      To assess the learner’s differential diagnosis regarding urinary incontinence.

4.      To evoke an effective and appropriate evaluation and treatment plan from the learner.

Product Information
Abstract: 

During the surgery clerkship, medical students are exposed to many elderly patients and cover age-related issues on a case-by-base basis.  The purpose of this educational initiative is to reach all of the medical students during their surgery clerkship to ensure a baseline of knowledge, skill, and attitude for caring for the older surgical patient. Through a problem-based learning case and working in teams, students will address the following topics: co-morbidity and frailty assessment, discussion of peri-operative assessment and decision-making with regard to surgery, and transitional care planning of the older surgery patient.

Educational objectives: 

 

  • Students will appreciate the unique problems of the increasing number of older adult patients undergoing abdominal surgery
  • Students will characterize the medical and surgical causes of acute abdominal pain in the older adult patient
  • Students will discuss the approach to an older adult patient with an acute abdomen
  • Students will appreciate the complex decision-making and rationale for the management options for an older adult surgical patient (i.e. emergent surgery, serial abdominal exams, and non-operative management)
  • Students will recognize the peri-operative complications common in the older adult surgical patient
  • Students will recognize different sites of care for older adults to recover after surgery
