MAHEC Project ECHO® for Geriatric Care: Free 5-Part Live Webinar Series

Description

Project ECHO® is a lifelong learning and guided practice model that revolutionizes medical education to provide best-practice specialty care and reduce health disparities. ECHO is led by an expert team that uses multi-point videoconferencing to conduct virtual learning sessions comprised of a short didactic followed by case presentations provided by participants. Rural physicians have identified the need for expert medical advice regarding care for aging patients in their communities.

The American population of older adults is rapidly expanding, while the number of Geriatricians is declining, creating a significant gap in our healthcare system. In rural North Carolina, most aging adults do not have access to a geriatrician and are cared for by family medicine physicians. The imperative created by increasing numbers of aging Americans coupled with increasing longevity has generated recognition and acceptance within physicians that continuing medical education must address the knowledge and skills that are necessary to provide effective care for older adults.

This video teleconferencing series, guided by experts, will cover topics such as:
• Memory Assessment in Primary Care
• Types of Dementias Seen in Primary Care and Evaluation of Memory Loss in the Primary Care Setting
• Treatment of Anxiety in the Older Adult
• Diagnosis and Treatment of Parkinson's Disease
• Spine Health and the Older Adult



All program dates are streamed on the ECHO Zoom Platform.
It takes place biweekly on Wednesdays from 7 AM to 8 AM EST.
Sessions begin on September 8th and end on November 3rd, 2021.
Participant must login at 6:50 AM for attendance.
One credit hour is earned for each session attended.
