Product Information
Abstract: 

"Pain Control" module is part of the CHAMP faculty development program, which aims to improve inpatient, geriatric medical care through a "teach the teacher" approach. It is central to one of CHAMP's themes, improving palliative and end of life care. Teaching materials include: a slide presentation with speaker's notes; bedside teaching triggers on assessing and treating pain and opiate conversions; a pocket teaching card; references; a sample session evaluation form; and the "CHAMP Overview and User's Guide." The weblink enables users to access to all CHAMP course materials.

CHAMP is a multi-tiered educational project with a faculty development program at its core. Hospitalists, general internists, and family practitioners who teach residents and medical students are the targeted audience. The course is organized around four themes in geriatric inpatient care: identifying and assessing vulnerable elders, preventing hazards of hospitalization, improving palliative and end of life care, and managing transitions of care. CHAMP addresses 15 geriatric topics and includes a mini-course entitled, "Teaching on Today's Wards," on advanced clinical teaching skills and teaching across the ACGME Core Competencies in the inpatient setting.

1 hour of Category 1 CME credit was awarded to physicians who participated in this session.

Educational objectives: 

The CHAMP "Pain Control" module teaches learners:

  1. How to use pain intensity scales at bedside with older adult patients;
  2. Recognize pain in persons with dementia;
  3. Use the WHO 3-step ladder for pain management;
  4. Use the opiate conversion table; and
  5. Manage side effects from opiates.

Abstract: 

CHAMP faculty evaluation instruments measure the impact of the CHAMP faculty development program on the quantity and quality of geriatric teaching in the patient setting. They include: a geriatrics knowledge test; an attitudes on aging survey; Commitment to Change contract and follow up survey; and surveys on self-confidence, importance and frequency teaching and practicing geriatric clinical skills and teaching across the ACGME core competences during inpatient teaching rounds. A user's guide is provided.

CHAMP (Curriculum for the Hospitalized Aging Medical Patient) is a multi-tiered educational project with a faculty development program at its core. Hospitalists, general internists, and family practitioners who teach residents and medical students are the targeted audience. The evaluation instruments provided are designed to measure change in clinical skills and behaviors teaching and practicing geriatrics and the ACGME Core Competencies in the inpatient setting.

Educational objectives: 

The CHAMP Evaluation Instruments for Faculty Learners measure:

  1. self-confidence, importance and frequency teaching geriatrics in the inpatient setting;
  2. self-confidence, importance and frequency teaching across the ACGME Core Competencies in the inpatient setting; and
  3. frequency with which the team performs geriatric clinical skills in the inpatient setting


Commitment to Change Contracts engage faculty learners in goal setting, and Follow-Up Surveys track inpatient teaching experiences and provide opportunity for reflective learning.

Additional information/Special implementation requirements or guidelines: 

CHAMP Evaluation Instruments have been administered to: 26 general internists, 2 hospitalists, 12 geriatricians, and 4 fellows at the University of Chicago.

CHAMP evaluation instruments for residents and medical students are also available via the weblink provided.

For an overview and user's guide for CHAMP, and a table of contents of the CHAMP modules and evaluation instruments, please refer to the CHAMP OVERVIEW and USER'S GUIDE.

Abstract: 

In 2003, six federally funded Geriatric Education Centers proposed a coordinated effort to develop a comprehensive curriculum on bio-terrorism and emergency preparedness (BTEPA) with the aim of disseminating this curriculum widely through health profession schools, public health, health and social service agencies, and other agencies that serve older persons. It is our hope that this curriculum will be an important resource in the development, implementation, dissemination and refinement of training programs in the area of disasters and geriatric mental health.

Educational objectives: 

To train students, faculty and health providers in mental health/illness and associated consequences of natural disasters and terrorist acts.

Learners will:

  1. understand the importance of a structured curriculum in Geriatric Mental Health and Emergency Disaster Preparedness and Response.
  2. realize that older adults require special consideration, for both mental and physical health needs, during and after disasters.
  3. understand the importance of training health care professionals to integrate the material into their practice.
  4. be able to implement the training plan.
Additional information/Special implementation requirements or guidelines:
