Description

Staying on the Cutting Edge of Gerontology

America's older population is rapidly expanding, and the need for well-trained and proactive geriatricians is growing daily. Clinicians working in eldercare need to stay abreast of new and current developments across multiple disciplines to serve our aging clients well.

Many different aspects of aging, along with appropriate treatment strategies, are explored including: normal aging, the promotion of healthy cognitive and emotional aging, aging and sexuality, spirituality and aging, and clinical and ethical issues around death, dying, and bereavement. The course focuses on problems of aging, including special considerations in geriatric assessment, and the mild and major neurocognitive disorders and how professionals can best meet the needs of these clients. The course also addresses the unique ethical issues that arise in the context of eldercare including special considerations in confidentiality, working with adult children of elders, future planning, elders at risk, safety issues and dementia care, capacity/competency, and end-of-life decision-making.  After this 2-day comprehensive course you’ll leave with increased confidence in working with your elderly clients.
