The VirginiaGeriatrics.Org website consists of 6 primary resources and a secondary list of resources for further research. These primary resources include a video archive of the geriatric grand round lecture series, interactive pre-clinical basic science geriatric case studies for medical students, more advanced geriatric case studies for clinical residents, a quick consult guide for geriatric consults, an "ask the expert" discussion resource, and various educational materials related to the Virginia Geriatrics Society Conference. Additionally, spread through the website are external educational resources to complement the core material. Finally, there are some resources for patients and families that may be interested in contacting clinics and/or geriatricians.

Educational objectives: 

Listed through 6 primary education sections (Grand Rounds, Med Student Materials, Resident Materials, Quick Consults, Ask the Expert, etc)

Abstract: 

This two hour interprofessional curriculum brings together fourth year medical students and third year pharmacy students in a hands-on, interactive small group session. Learners are given a guide briefly describing the case and delineating five health care members and their roles and expertise in Mr. Moore's healthcare team (Mr. Moore's partner, the outpatient pharmacist, the inpatient intern, etc). A pair of interprofessional facilitators guide learners through the case, utilizing different healthcare team members' roles and expertise to explore methods of medication organization and systemic barriers to accurate and safe discharge medication reconciliation. Learners discover and discuss discrepancies in high-risk medications, gain an appreciation of systems hurdles for patients and healthcare providers during transitions of care, complete an exercise in writing discharge medication instructions, and brainstorm action items to personally employ to overcome systemic hurdles for safer discharge medication reconciliation.

Educational objectives: 

By the end of the two-hour session, learners will work collaboratively to:

  1. Describe the roles and expertise of three health professions that can collaborate to reconcile medications and enhance safety of medication orders at the time of hospital discharge. 
  2. List three potential communication barriers between health professionals involved in discharge planning that contribute to medication errors in vulnerable older adults.
  3. Identify key components of discharge medication lists and instructions to communicate information safely to patients, caregivers, primary care providers and others on the healthcare team.

Abstract: 

This module demonstrates the normal age-related changes in the urinary system and its clinical implications. A highlight of these modules are side by side comparison of young and aged tissues with interactive slides and summary drawings which reinforce the main points on the histology slides. The curriculum is appealing to clinical learners as it is anchored in showing clinically relevant changes and the implications of these changes in older patients. The main audience is the pre-clinical first or second year medical student, but these could be used by other trainees to teach the basic science of aging.

Educational objectives: 

Learning Objectives for Urinary System module:

Identify the major aging associated changes in each of the following and describe the clinical implications of these changes on the:

  1. Kidney
  2. Ureter
  3. Urethra - female
  4. Nerves
  5. Urethra - male

Abstract: 

This is a Powerpoint presentation designed to provide the backbone for a talk to primary care or specialty residents responsible for discharging hospitalized Medicare patients to another level of care. It reviews the available post-acute options (LTACH, AIR, SNF, LTC, home health) and provides just the information on Medicare and Medicaid that are critical to understanding the patient’s options. The presentation includes Medicare financial information and criteria for coverage specific to 2014, and Medicaid information specific to NC, so some modification and updating may be necessary for use in other venues or later years. The presentation can be accomplished in 45 minutes leaving room for questions in a one-hour time block. A decision-tree diagram is included as a handout that can be provided with the talk and provides a succinct summary for future reference.

Educational objectives: 

1. Review a few key elements of Medicare and Medicaid eligibility and benefits

2. Distinguish between Inpatient and Observation status for Medicare patients

3. Be able to clearly state a patient’s discharge needs

4. Know the various discharge options and the key differences between them

5. Apply the criteria for Medicare coverage of various discharge options

Abstract: 

Incoming chief residents from all departments participate in a 90 minutes workshop with the dual objectives of teaching a model for sharing bad news and preparing these physician leaders to give feedback to learners about this important skill.  After reviewing a 6 step model for bad news communication, the chief residents share bad news with standardized patients using two cases of older adults with a new or recurrent cancer diagnosis.  The standardized patients all receive training about the workshop's objectives in a separate session prior to the workshop.  After communicating with the standardized patient, the chief resident receives feedback from the patient, a trained faculty small group facilitator and 1-2 other chief residents.  After both cases are completed, the chief residents gather for a large group discussion about the challenges and opportunities in providing feedback to learners about sensitive topics.  This workshop has been conducted for the past three years, and has received positive evaluations from the participating physicians and the school's Graduate Medical Education Office.

Educational objectives: 
  1. Recognize bad news communication as a core physician skill
  2. Understand the 6 basic steps used to initially deliver bad news
  3. Practice giving feedback to a resident whom delivered bad news
  4. Identify & discuss challenges of providing feedback about a sensitive topic

Abstract: 

This course is intended for interdisciplinary members of the healthcare team in the hospital setting to improve knowledge of issues surrounding delirium in the elderly hospitalized patient. This 23-question module focuses on the evidence behind the recognition, prevention, and management of delirium in the geriatric patient.

Educational objectives: 

Upon completion the learner will be able to:

1. Use the Confusion Assessment Method to screen for delirium.

2. Understand features that differentiate delirium from dementia.

3. Name at least  five risk factors for delirium and techniques that target each risk factor to prevent the development of delirium.

4. Name at least three drugs that should be avoided in the geriatric patient.

5. Understand basic principles to the management of delirium, including work-up, behavioral management, and pharmacologic management.

6. Understand the importance of documentation of delirium and ways to improve transitions of care.

Additional information/Special implementation requirements or guidelines: 

This program will consist of 23 multiple choice questions on delirium in the geriatric patient in the hospital setting. The module will begin with two questions every other day in a single email from the website, www.qstream.com. This website will facilitate the delivery of questions and answers to the participant. You must log in to the website from the link posted above.

  •  If a question is answered incorrectly, the participant will receive the same question 5 days later.
  •  If a question is answered correctly, the participant will receive the same question 14 days later.
  •  If the participant answers the question correctly two times in a row, the question is then retired from the program and  is no longer repeated.
  •  The participant will complete the program when all 23 questions are retired (each question is answered correctly twice in  a row).  However, CE credit may be given when the program is 80% completed.

Given these parameters, it is estimated that the participant will complete the program in less than three months.

Participants may receive credit or contact hours ONLY by completing 80% of the questions in a module AND completing the end of module survey in LESS than four months time of enrollment.
