SAGE (Seniors Assisting in Geriatric Education)

Abstract: 

The SAGE (Senior Mentoring Program) is a competency-based learning activity that offers the unique opportunity for community seniors to receive in home visits with medical school & physician assistant students from UNT Health Science Center. The program pairs two 1st or 2nd year medical school and physician assistant students with a senior client that either receives home delivered meals through the Meals on Wheels Program Inc. of Tarrant County or a senior in the community who has volunteered to participate in the program.

Educational objectives: 

Strengthen the healthcare professional students’ medical education through increased development of competency in attitudes, knowledge, and skills in their care of older adults. In this experience with their senior client medical students will:

  1. Obtain a medical history and mental status exam
  2. Practice history and physical examination skills
  3. Perform evaluations, assessments, advance care planning
  4. Complete other assignments assigned in medical school

Allow an opportunity for seniors to assist in students’ development of competency in attitudes, knowledge, and skills in their care of older adults. To ultimately impact the way future doctors care for older adults. By participation in the SAGE program, senior clients will assist in the geriatric education of healthcare professional students by participating in:

  1. Providing evaluative feedback on their experience with their assigned students
  2. Participating in research related to geriatric education; care-giver attitudes, knowledge, and skills; attitudes about medical professionals; demographic and biopsychosocial factors and life-transition issues related to aging
  3. Participate in scheduled SAGE visits and assignments with their assigned medical students
  4. Provide demographic, biopsychosocial, and life-transition information through written questionnaires, interviews, surveys, and or evaluations
Additional information/Special implementation requirements or guidelines: 

The SAGE program was started in the fall of 2009 with the TCOM class of 2013, and is currently in its third year involving 520 medical school & physician assistant students and over 280 community seniors. It is a mandatory part of the Clinical Medicine Course for all year 1 and 2 medical students and is part of the Clinical Medicine Course grade. The program is also mandatory for the physician assistant student program within the School of Health Professions. The University of South Carolina School of Medicine/ Palmetto Health Senior Mentor Program, led by Paul Eleazer MD was a program partner in the original curriculum design of the SAGE Program assignments. The SAGE Program is an incredibly important component of a healthcare student’s education. All healthcare students and Fort Worth Metroplex senior adults benefit from this innovative senior mentoring program.

Students are paired and assigned to a community senior client. Students make eight home visits to their senior client and complete eight assignments over two years. Assignments allow students a real life opportunity to practice their clinical medicine skills and address recommended minimum geriatric competencies. This dynamic real world experience exposes students to a diverse population of older adults, helping prepare them to care for the growing and diverse geriatric population. This relationship allows students to know the senior as a person who is more than just medical conditions or diseases, and to observe how their quality of life and coping mechanisms are impacted.

SAGE senior clients receive free blood pressure checks, a limited physical exam, a nutritional assessment, a home safety assessment, discussions on available community resources and advanced care planning, as well as benefit from the students’ companionship and have an opportunity to contribute to the students’ medical school training. Senior clients are given the opportunity to evaluate their student doctors to aid in feedback on the attitudes and skills demonstrated by the students during the SAGE visits. Students submit their SAGE visit assignments electronically through the UNTHSC Blackboard Learning System to an assigned faculty mentor. SAGE faculty mentors are assigned a SAGE POD, which consists of 10-14 senior clients and approximately 20-28 students. Mentors grade the assignments and provide the students with feedback.

Student policies and procedures have been developed to support student and senior client safety. Each semester students are oriented to SAGE for that semester by the Geriatric Education and Training in Texas (GET-IT) Program faculty and staff. Prior to making the first home visit all students participate in mandatory IRB training, and in a criminal background check. Campus Department of Public Safety officers speak to the students on safety measures in making their home visits. Student feedback is gained through student focus groups, larger student feedback sessions, program surveys, feedback to faculty mentors through the assignment submissions and senior client evaluations on their student doctors.

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 Vision and Aging "ACOVE" is number 1 of 16 different curricula being developed in Aging Q3.

Educational objectives: 
  1. Identify whether an eye exam has been done within the past year
  2. Perform a funduscopic exam and identify if the patient had Primary Open Angle Glaucoma, Cataracts, Age Related Macular Degeneration, or Diabetic Retinopathy. 
  3. Refer the patient to Ophthalmology if an eye exam has not been done within the past year or if the funduscopic exam shows signs of 1 of the 4 most common diseases.
