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.

Product Information
Abstract: 

This is a multiple choice test used as a pre- and post-geriatrics rotation to assess knowledge and skill in planning health systems use for patient care, such as home care, long term care, hospice, etc.

Educational objectives: 

One of the goals of the one month geriatrics residency rotation is to have residents develop competency in providing care and referring patients across systems of care and understand systems-based geriatrics practice. The rotation provides clinical experience in care of older adults in acute, subacute, long term care, ambulatory, and home care settings with exposure to a multidisciplinary team model of care. Seminars include a session on health care systems and transitions of care. At the end of the one-month rotation residents are expected to attain competency in the following areas: 1. Medical evaluation of the older adult in the emergency room setting When is it appropriate not to admit to the hospital? What can be done to insure a safe discharge from the emergency room? 2. Insurance considerations when planning for hospital discharge What does insurance cover? What are the limitations of the available programs? 3. End of life care What are the goals of care? What services are available for patients and families? 4. Caregiver stress How do we help families plan for the long care of their loved ones? What support is available for families and physicians in making these plans? 5. Community care What kinds of support services are offered in the community after hospital discharge? Who pays for long- term care and how is it arranged?
