Course Description

The Wisconsin Update in Geriatric Medicine and Board Review Course 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, dieticians, and social workers who wish to provide better care for their patients.

Physicians and other clinicians planning to sit for the American Board of Internal Medicine (ABIM), the American Board of Family Medicine (ABFM) Examination in Geriatric Medicine (or Re-certification) or comparable examinations for other health disciplines will also benefit from the course, which is jointly provided by the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health and the Medical College of Wisconsin.

During the course, participants learn about principles of aging; the clinical approach to the geriatric patient; major syndromes such as dementia, incontinence, falls and metabolic bone disease;  organ-specific diseases that have special import for the geriatric patient; and clinical pearls regarding care for the geriatric population.
Course Objectives
  1. Diagnose and manage common geriatric syndromes e.g., urinary incontinence, metabolic bone disease, dementia, and falls.
  2. Describe organ-specific changes and diseases as they relate to the geriatric patient.
  3. Develop a clinical approach to geriatric patients based on knowledge of geriatric syndromes.
  4. Apply the principles of preventive medicine, ethics, rehabilitation, and psychiatry as they relate specifically to the geriatric patient.
  5. Propose appropriate pharmacologic and non-pharmacologic treatment for older adults.
  6. Identify pharmacokinetic/pharmacodynamics changes that affect drug use in the geriatric patient.
  7. Discuss the social milieu in which the elderly patient lives.
  8. Utilize the complex service delivery network that has been devised to serve the elderly patient.
  9. Describe the operation of long-term care systems and specialized geriatric assessment programs designed to specially treat the elderly person.
