Geriatric Pharmacology Review and Update: Dissecting Beers Criteria


In this module we examine Beers Criteria. We identify key pharmacologic classes and drug to drug interactions that raise red flags when treating Geriatric patients.

module cover for differentiating dementias

Geriatric Giants:
Differentiating Dementias


It is important to identify acute on chronic as well as reversible causes of delirium versus dementia. In this module we highlight the objective and physiologic changes that we witness amongst this varied landscape. We review the different types of dementia and compare each disease state and subsequent effects on the patient has a whole.

module 3 cover: managing challenging behaviours

Geriatric Giants:
Managing Challenging Behaviors


The emphasis in this module is that the patient’s disease state is separate and apart from who they once were. We discover ways to manage challenging behaviors and specifically how certain medications can exacerbate negative behavior in patients who had dementia as their baseline.

module 4 cover: understanding arthoropathy

Clinical Approach to Arthritides:
Understanding Arthropathy


Our aging patients often suffer from the clinical pain of localized and widespread joint pain that leads to longstanding chronic pain syndromes. We explore common arthritides and how joint diseases manifest in the aging client.

Clinical Approach to Arthritides
Clinical Pain Syndromes


“Sometimes the pain becomes the diagnosis.” In this module we define pain syndrome and explore a stepwise approach to the geriatric patient who is dealing with chronic pain.

module 6 cover: geriatric emergencies

Geriatric Emergencies

Geriatric Emergencies most commonly occur during times of transition of care. In the older client, common symptoms and signs present atypically. In this module we identify key geriatric emergencies by organ system and how to recognize signs and symptoms that our patient is in crisis. We emphasize the importance of providing an adequate narrative in the transfer of our client from outpatient to inpatient, home to Emergency Department and various setting in between.

module 7 cover: ethics in our current climate

Ethics in Our Current Climate

This is a bedside Ethical review and self-check as we examine policy, patient rights and bedside clinical decision making. We discuss common themes that arise in patient care and further define the role of the patient in managing their own morbidity and mortality.

Cultural Implications for
the Interdisciplinary Team


This is not a module on diversity. This is a module on how the intersection of the clinical, personal, and professional culture imposes itself on patient care. We explore the culture of the patient and their family and how best to identify key personal, professional, and familial behavioral patterns that can affect the outcome and clinical course of care for the aging client.
