Product Information
Abstract: 

This resource has been developed as a self-learning tool for Internal Medicine residents at Emory University on their Geriatric Medicine rotation. Each of the workbooks is centered on an important geriatrics topic. The topics include: delirium, dementia, urinary incontinence, medication use, falls, pain management, hazards of hospitalization, failure to thrive, and transitions of care. Each workbook is divided into three parts. It starts with a case vignette, followed by a set of learning tasks related to it. These tasks usually start with a required reading which gives an outline of the topic and then go on to questions about the case. Finally, the resident is provided with at least three "boards-style" multiple-choice questions that will require integration of knowledge acquired in reading the workbook. These workbooks are meant as a companion for the learning modules that are in the website for the Emory Reynolds program, which exists to strengthen physician training in geriatrics.

Educational objectives: 

Embedded

Additional information/Special implementation requirements or guidelines: 

The workbooks have been recently prepared and are starting to be used by Emory Internal Medicine residents during their Geriatrics rotation. We have not started obtaining evaluations yet.
