Acute Care for Elders 2017

Milwaukee, WI US
November 10, 2017

This conference is designed to train America’s healthcare workforce in the skills required to take care of hospitalized older persons. This session will feature international experts in geriatrics and gerontologic nursing. The conference will be particularly important to nurses and hospitalists. The entire interdisciplinary team of therapists, social workers, pharmacists and case managers will also benefit from this experience.  

Our goal is to increase the number of health care professionals who use the principles of geriatric medicine as they care for vulnerable older adults.

Target Audience

Physicians, nurses, physician assistants and allied health care providers involved in the care of older adults

Learning Objectives

  1. Identify stages of frailty; those in greatest need of proactive, coordinated care. 
  2. Work with patients to identify goals of care in the context of their advance illness (i.e. integrate health and social services, and physical and mental health).
  3. Use best practices/models of care to address needs of vulnerable older adults (i.e. engaging patients in decisions, coordinating care, team communication).
