Wisconsin Update in Geriatric Medicine

September 21, 2021 to September 24, 2021

The Wisconsin Update in Geriatric Medicine is an in-depth, knowledge-based review of the field of Geriatric Medicine. It is designed for all providers who care for older adults: physicians, physician assistants, nurses and nurse practitioners, pharmacists, psychologists, dietitians, and social workers who wish to provide better care for their patients.

Although many providers care for elderly adults, few have training in geriatric medicine.  The aging population is also rapidly growing, and there are not enough geriatricians graduating from training programs to meet the needs of this expanding group.  Best practices for the care of complex, elderly individuals often differ from established guidelines due to multimorbidity and the associated competing demands for treatment.  Most medical providers thus face challenges when attempting to provide appropriate, safe care for older adults, which can lead to negative outcomes for patients. Dissemination of knowledge regarding geriatric medicine to generalist physicians and other medical providers is therefore critical. Additionally, the American Board of Internal Medicine (ABIM) and the American Board of Family Medicine (ABFM) include geriatric topics in their certification examinations. Those studying for these examinations may lack adequate experience to perform well on the portions of the exam addressing geriatrics topics.

Target Audience

Physicians, physician assistants, nurses, nurse practitioners, pharmacists, social workers, psychologists working in the field of geriatric medicine.

Elements of Competence
