Abstract: 

Caring for Elderly Patients in the Emergency Department: An interactive lecture series is a series of six lectures with multiple choice questions designed to introduce Emergency Medicine (EM) care givers to key concepts in caring for elderly patients.  The lectures address key concepts in elderly trauma, acute abdominal pain, iatrogenic injuries, altered mental status, medication management, and transitions of care and were designed by physicians in The Department of Emergency Medicine and the Division of Geriatric Medicine at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (UNC).  The multiple choice questions can be used to asses the learners retention after the lecture series, or to test their knowledge base prior to delivering the lectures.  This curriculum was successfully delivered to the EM residents at UNC with resulting improvements in care delivery to elderly Emergency Department patients at our institution.

Educational objectives: 
  • To increase emergency medicine care givers knowledge of geriatric principals of care
  • To promote safe delivery of care for geriatric patients in emergency departments
  • To encourage emergency medicine care givers to continue to expand their knowledge base and educate colleagues in geriatric care
  • Each interactive lecture has specific objectives.

Abstract: 

In our increasingly complex medical system, physicians and other healthcare providers, as well as patients and their family members, often face difficult decisions regarding end-of-life care.  In addition to being emotionally challenging, such decisions involve complex ethical considerations. Furthermore, physicians are increasingly recognizing the importance of spiritual care at all stages of treatment, but particularly when patients are facing death. For many patients, spiritual and religious beliefs and convictions play an important role in addressing end-of-life issues and informing ethically difficult decisions. This symposium will bring together physicians, healthcare providers, chaplains and spiritual care providers, and interested members of the community to examine key themes in both clinical ethics and spiritual care at the end-of-life.

Educational objectives: 
  • Gain knowledge of relevant ethical principles regarding end-of-life treatment decisions (e.g., understanding distinctions between ordinary/proportionate and extraordinary/disproportionate health care interventions.).
  • Physicians will appreciate the trends in this medical literature as it applies to their own clinical practice, and make recommendations accordingly.
  • Physicians will become more adept at discussing spiritual issues with a patient in a clinical context.
  • Physicians will understand the need for a spiritual history, and gain practical tools to use in gathering this history in a clinical setting with their elderly patients.
  • Physicians and other health professionals will enhance their cultural competence by including religious and spiritual dimensions in their consideration of cultural factors that affect and influence patients' experience of illness and medical decision making.
