Abstract: 

Guidelines for managing diabetes in older adults and particularly the long-term care population have changed significantly over recent years.  Changes have included redefining HbA1c goals based on patient comorbidities and function.  Additional emphasis has been placed on discontinuing the use of sliding scale insulin in the long-term care population.  The current guidelines are reviewed, and a practical approach to the day-to-day management of diabetes in long-term care is outlined.

Educational objectives: 

1. To review recommended HbA1c goals determined by patient comorbidities.

2. To review recommendations regarding the use of sliding scale insulin in LTC patients.

3. To outline a practical approach to the day-to-day management of diabetes in the long-term care setting.

Abstract: 

Patient Complexity and Interprofessional Team Care is a geriatrics block rotation mini-course designed to improve medicine trainee’s understanding of health care teams.  It was developed in the setting of a new model of care collaboration for vulnerable seniors, Geriatric Resources for Assessment and Care of Elders.  The course is a blended curriculum offered during a 4-week residency block rotation in geriatrics. It is composed of a web-based, audio, PowerPoint lecture to introduce the Minnesota Complexity Assessment Method (MCAM) tool and application of the tool using paper cases.  The tool is then applied to actual patients discussed at an interprofessional team meeting of the GRACE care management program.

Educational objectives: 

Given a screening of the patient medical record, attendance at the patient’s GRACE interprofessional team meeting and completion of the Minnesota Complexity Assessment Method (MCAM) tool, the health professional trainee will identify patient situation complexity and describe ways that interprofessional team care members address patient care.

Given a printed Likert scale questionnaire, the resident will indicate positive change in degree of agreement with beliefs about interprofessional teams.

The poster described the 12-item physician survey to assess post-graduate medicine resident beliefs regarding interdisciplinary teams.  Resident responses demonstrated that interdisciplinary team participation is perceived as worthwhile. Yet, residents were uncertain about when their patient needed a team. There was significant agreement for having physicians as leaders of teams, and yet there was not clear agreement on team goals. Survey results support development of curricula for medicine residents geared toward teaching when a team approach is indicated and clarifying roles of various team members.

Abstract: 

This module demonstrates the normal age-related changes in the urinary system and its clinical implications. A highlight of these modules are side by side comparison 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 Urinary System module:

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

  1. Kidney
  2. Ureter
  3. Urethra - female
  4. Nerves
  5. Urethra - male

Abstract: 

The didactic lecture remains a primary method of instruction in medical education, particularly for large class sizes. Capturing and maintaining the attention of students are some of the characteristics of an effective lecture. An excellent opening summary is critical to the success of the lecture and encourages students to focus with anticipation and mental alertness. The Iowa Geriatric Education Center has developed movie trailers on dementia, depression, delirium, and falls that can serve as excellent opening summaries to help capture the learners' attention. These one to two minute summaries have been used effectively to introduce didactic lecture topics as well as in interactive workshops.

Educational objectives: 

 Two to three minute videos utilized to provide preliminary overview of topics to capture the learners' attention.

Product Information

Abstract: 

The transition of patients to other settings of care requires input from multiple members of the healthcare team to ensure safe transitions.  Interprofessional collaborative practice has been described as key to safe, high quality, accessible, patient-centered care. Effective team based care is best obtained when members of the healthcare team understand their roles and how to collaborate and coordinate activities with other team members. We developed an interprofessional curriculum aimed at improving role understanding, communication and collaboration in care delivery while promoting patient safety during transitions of care.  The curriculum addresses the 4 competency domains of interprofessional collaborative practice including Values/Ethics for Interprofessional Practice; Roles/Responsibilities; Interprofessional Communication; Teams and Teamwork.

Using a multimodal approach, the curriculum is delivered through: 

  1. Didactics at the ongoing hospital inter-professional conferences.
  2. Small group sessions with case studies, video play and role play during inpatient unit interdisciplinary meetings. 
  3. A web based CBL module to be completed by hospital staff at the already existent mandatory annual training of hospital staff and orientation of new staff.
  4. A discharge process checklist distributed to the staff and also incorporated into the hospital electronic medical records. 

Educational objectives: 

After this session, you will be able to:

  1. Define the role of each member of the healthcare team in the discharge process,
  2. Describe team based collaboration in discharge care.
  3. Describe the most important elements of patient and provider communication at       discharge.
  4. Define components of comprehensive pre-discharge assessment of patients.
  5. Assess patients for appropriate discharge locations.
  6. Describe the process of efficient and effective care coordination that will ensure seamless transition of patients to other care settings.
