Product Information
Abstract: 

This product reviews key clinical information on dermatologic changes of aging and disease utilizing excellent color photos clinical pearls.This one hour CEU accredited unit is divided into 3 modules of 15-20 minutes each. It's design allows delivery as either a lecture or voiced for a distance web-based module or self-directed learning. Each module ends with case-based questions and answers.

Educational objectives: 

The learner will gain basic information on aging dermatology, evaluation and treatment of dermatologic diseases common to the elderly and visual images of key diagnostic features of dermatologic disease. 

Upon completion of Modules 1-3 the learner will be able to: 

1. List the normal age related skin changes. 

2. Identify and treat the common skin disorders of aging.

3. Identify malignant versus non malignant skin conditions in aged.

 

Upon completion of Module 4 the learner will be able to:

1. Identify common infectious dermatologic diseases in the elderly.

2. List treatment modalities for common infectious dermatologic diseases in the elderly.

Additional information/Special implementation requirements or guidelines: 

Eighteen Practicing NPs, Physicians, Pharmacists, PAs have completed this product. Blackboard distance based learning as part of a Minifellowship in Geriatrics. I. Implementation 1) For lecture presentation: There are no special implementation requirements other than familiarity with the technology to use PowerPoint. Presenters should be comfortable enough with content to facilitate a robust discussion. 2) For use in distance learning: The material was originally adapted to Blackboard learning systems, however using the Power Point system as we have, it can be adapted to many distance based learning system. We recommend for optimal learning that the presentation have speaker voicing ( audio) to explain the slides and the learner also have the ability to read the lecture notes. II. Benefits and practical tips 1) For lecture and self learning: The 15-20 minute modular format is concise and partialized, allowing presenters to select the most relevant information for their audience. 2) For use in distance learning: Our feedback is that the 15-20 minute segments are popular, the learners cite that it less intimidating to do, the questions at the end create a break and closure and the 1 hour credit for completion of the three module unit is attained "painlessly"

  8. Sample Logistical Plans.


The G-OSTE was implemented as part of the CHAMP (Curriculum for the Hospitalized Aging Medical Patient) faculty development program to provide a simulated practice teaching experience for learners. In its entirety, the CHAMP Faculty Development Program consists of 15 geriatric topics and a mini-course entitled, "Teaching on Today's Wards," on advanced clinical teaching skills and teaching across the ACGME Core Competencies.

CME credit is available for this product. For more information, please contact the author.

Technical Requirements and Notes: This learning module uses Adobe Flash media and may require you to add a browser "plug-in" in order to display properly. Most computers already have this free plug-in installed. But, if yours does not, it is very easy to download and install. Try the module first because the software is "smart" enough to detect the Flash player. If the module doesn't begin, you will be automatically prompted to download the plug-in. The module contains links to external websites which will open in a new browser window. Your browser's back button will not return to the module, so these new windows should be closed.

In order to track your progress, you must create an account and fill out a brief demographic profile. Once the profile has been created, you can log directly into the course.
