Clinical Update in Geriatric Medicine 2018

Pittsburgh, PA US
April 4, 2018 to April 6, 2018

As the population continues to age, we are all seeing a tidal wave of older persons in our hospitals, clinics and nursing homes. Moreover, the fastest growing segment of the population comprises individuals above the age of 85 years. The purpose of this conference is to provide an evidencebased approach to help clinicians provide exceptional care to these often frail individuals.

Target Audience

This course is designed for family practitioners, internists, geriatricians, and other health care professionals who provide care to older adults. Previous attendees will also be interested because of the conference’s continually changing topics, speakers and approach.

Learning Objectives

Provide evidence-based updates for common geriatric disorders.
Understand how the approach to geriatric care differs by clinical setting.
Understand innovative new initiatives and programs to improve the care of the older patient.
Provide more patient-centered care.
Get answers to specific clinical questions from their own practice.
