Abstract: 

Patient- and family-centered rounds (PFCR) is a model for empowering patients and families and improving communication and care in an academic, inpatient setting. This product contains multiple handouts and a PowerPoint that reviews core concepts of PFCR and includes steps to begin bedside interprofessional rounds in an academic inpatient setting. It could also be easily adapted to outpatient and nursing home situations.

Educational objectives: 

On completion, the learner will be able to:

1.  Describe the key elements of patient- and family-centered care (PFCC) and patient- and family-centered rounding (PFCR)
2.  List examples of how patient- and family-centered rounding can improve patient safety, staff satisfaction, and resident physician education
3.  Explain how patient- and family-centered rounds differ from traditional models of hospital care on an academic hospital unit 
4.  Describe specific examples of barriers and solutions to adopting patient- and family-centered rounding
Additional information/Special implementation requirements or guidelines: 

Since implementation by the family medicine residency of The Christ Hospital/University of Cincinnati in 2007, PFCR has been well received by geriatric patients and their families, with positive feedback regarding the value of the multiple opinions received under PFCR, the ease of obtaining answers to questions, and the positive engagement of the patient and family in care. Residents and interprofessional staff have also benefited form this care model of bedside interprofessional teaching.

Abstract: 

The Image Atlas of Aging is an original UMMS educational product developed to highlight the normal age-related anatomic and histological changes within the cardiovascular system. The Image Atlas of Aging is a PowerPoint module that features normal gross and histological images to model the aging heart and to serve as an easily replicated prototype to eventually incorporate other organs and organ systems. The module introduces the principle of homeostenosis as a function of aging that emphasizes that aging is neither equivalent to disease nor does it signify inevitable disease. This original geriatrics content has been integrated into the first year medical student “Development, Structure, and Function” (DSF) course curriculum.

Educational objectives: 

After completion of this module, the MS1 learner will be expected to:

  • explain that cardiovascular disease is not inevitable with normal aging
  • differentiate normal anatomic, physiologic, and histological differences between the young and aged heart
  • define the principle of homeostenosis, illustrating how the renal system becomes more susceptible to acute injury with the loss of age-related functional reserve

Abstract: 

This website includes information and resources to help clinicians, providers, and consumers better understand how to manage problem behaviors and psychosis in people with dementia using evidence-based approaches. This includes brief lectures, written content, quick reference guides for clinicians and providers, and information for families or patients on the risks and benefits of antipsychotics for people with dementia (a.k.a. Alzheimer’s disease and others). You can also request laminated quick reference guides to use in your practice, which can help you put the strategies you learn about into action.

Educational objectives: 
On completion, the learner will be able to:
  1. List appropriate initial assessments to help determine the causes of problem behaviors or psychosis in dementia.
  2. Apply non-drug strategies to manage problem behaviors or psychosis in dementia.
  3. Assess delirium signs and symptoms using a delirium screening tool.
  4. Determine when an antipsychotic might be appropriate or inappropriate in a person with dementia, depending on symptoms and the type of dementia.
  5. Select an optimal antipsychotic for a patient with dementia based on efficacy, side effects, and patient comorbidities.
  6. Recognize antipsychotic side effects in a person with dementia.
  7. Discuss the risks and benefits of antipsychotics with patients and families using a shared decision making information sheet as a guide.
Additional information/Special implementation requirements or guidelines: 

This program is supported by the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (R18 HS19355-01).

The quick reference guides were reviewed by healthcare practitioners and direct care providers during development. The family guide was reviewed by the New Readers of Iowa and Alzheimer's Association support group participants.

Abstract: 

The Alliance for Geriatrics Education in Specialties (AGES) consists of 8 interactive core curriculum modules: iatrogenic injury, delirium, dementia, polypharmacy, transitions of care, basics of geriatrics assessment and levels of care, physiology of aging, palliative care communication and medications. These 8 modules have been designed to teach specialty faculty, at all levels of their career, how to increase effectiveness and quality of care for their older adult patients. In 2009, the University of North Carolina School of Medicine at Chapel Hill conducted a needs assessment to evaluate the potential for improvement of UNC Healthcare System specialty/subspecialty faculty regarding geriatrics care through training. Based on the assessment results, the AGES curriculum was developed, implemented, evaluated, and now available for use through POGOe. The AGES curriculum can be taught as an entire course or each module can be taught as a separate training session. The UNC Healthcare System is currently using all 8 modules for training its non-geriatrician specialty faculty. Each of the 8 module PowerPoint presentations will take approximately 60 minutes per training session. *This curriculum may also be applicable to internists and family medicine practitioners.

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. In the clinic, 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. A "Yellow Sheet" cues the Resident to address the featured issue on the hospital wards. Residents are assessed pre and post on knowledge, skill, and attitude by a Survey Monkey questionnaire.

The Pressure Ulcers and Malnutrition "ACOVE" are numbers 11 and 12 of 16 different curricula being developed in Aging Q3.

Educational objectives: 

After completion of this ACOVE, residents will be able to:

  1. Correctly demonstrate how to examine a hospitalized patient for presence of pressure ulcers.
  2. Correctly demonstrate how to evaluate a hospitalized patient for undernutrition.
  3. Correctly assess an undernourished hospitalized patient for reversible causes of poor nutritional intake.
  4. Correctly stage and document a pressure ulcer on hospitalized patient.
