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 Hearing Loss and Aging "ACOVE" is number 16 of 16 different curricula being developed in Aging Q3.

Educational objectives: 
  • Perform an Otoscopic exam to identify treatable causes of hearing loss.
  • Identify causes of sensorineural and conductive hearing loss.
  • Treat immediately reversible causes of hearing loss.
  • Be familiar with auditory assistance devices for those who can't be helped by ENT or can't afford hearing aids.
