Abstract: 

The goal of this clinical skills session is for students to gain skills in working in teams during a particularly difficult situation: the team disclosure of medical errors.  There will be an encounter with a standardized patient (SP) acting as a family member, followed by feedback from the SP and for some students, a review of the recorded interview in a meeting with their mentors and mentor group.

Educational objectives: 

At completion of this case, the student will demonstrate effective team communication behaviors when:

  1. Discussing a medical error (by demonstrating four important principles),
  2. Planning for the disclosure (by demonstrating three important principles), and
  3. Conducting the disclosure (by demonstrating eight important principles).

The principles mentioned above are described in the online module.

Abstract: 

This module demonstrates the normal age-related changes in the musculoskeletal system and their clinical implications. A highlight of these modules are side by side comparisons of young and aged tissues with interactive slides and summary drawings which reinforce the main points on the histology slides. The curriculum is appealing to clinical learners as it is anchored in showing clinically relevant changes and the implications of these changes in older patients. The main audience is the pre-clinical first or second year medical student, but these could be used by other trainees to teach the basic science of aging.

Educational objectives: 

Learning Objectives for Musculoskeletal System module:

Identify the major aging associated changes in each of the following and describe the clinical implications of these changes:

  1. Muscle
  2. Tendons & ligaments
  3. Cartilage
  4. Bone
  5. Spine

Abstract: 

The UT Southwestern SAGE Urinary Incontinence module is a comprehensive core curriculum on UI in the elderly which can be incorporated into existing UME courses at both the pre-clinical and clinical levels. After completion of the program, medical students will have been trained in the basic evaluation and treatment of UI in the elderly. The program and learning platforms are created in sequential modules so that components can be utilized in different courses (anatomy, physiology, pharmacology) and for different levels of learners (clinical cases for 3rd and 4th year students). Modules also lend themselves to be utilized as clinical correlations in basic science courses.

Educational objectives: 

After completion of the UI modules, learners will be able to:

  • Describe the anatomy and physiology of the continence mechanism.
  • Discuss the age-related changes in the anatomy and physiology of the lower urinary tract (LUT) which increase the risk of UI.
  • Evaluate and diagnose the cause of a patient's urinary incontinence.
  • Create a treatment and management plan for a patient with urinary incontinence.
  • Describe how medications can cause UI and also understand complications from medications used to treat UI.

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.

Abstract: 

Sixty percent of new cancers are diagnosed in patients 65 years and older. Cancer is the leading cause of death for men and women age 60-79. Healthcare professionals are making strides in addressing this issue through comprehensive risk assessments and exams to identify the issue early; as well as provide the patient with treatment options for care. This module examines geriatric oncology, assessments and treatment options for older adults with cancer.

Educational objectives: 

Upon completion of this module, the participant will be able to:

  1. Provide a geriatric perspective on cancer care
  2. Discuss the importance of individual risk assessment for cancer treatment options
  3. Discuss decision-making points for older adults with cancer and the cultural factors that influence decision-making.
  4. Recognize the legal and ethical concepts that influence health professionals ability to assist in decision-making with patients and families.
  5. Discuss the physiologic effects of cancer and cancer treatment on the nutritional status of older adults and provide methods to assess and offer nutritional support

Abstract: 

Management of the agitated elderly patient represents one of the greatest challenges in geriatric medicine. Historically, the use of both physical and chemical restraints was widespread. In more recent years, legislation has been passed to encourage alternative means of management as restraint use may lead to increase morbidity and mortality. The following three cases are common scenarios where restraints may be considered. The cases and accompanying questions are intended to be used by faculty to lead a discussion on this topic.

Educational objectives: 

After using this educational tool learners should be able to:

1. Describe what constitutes a physical or chemical restraint.

2. Differentiate when it is and is not appropriate to use a physical or chemical restraint in an elderly patient.

3. List alternatives to physical and chemical restraints.

4. Explain the dangers of physical and chemical restraints.
