This two-day conference affords participants - including physicians, nurses, nurse practitioners, and allied health professionals who work in clinical and academic settings related to geriatric care – the opportunity to spend time in an intensive and highly interactive setting with leaders in the field of geriatric medical management. Participants are encouraged to think "outside of the box" and consider novel approaches to creating and managing geriatric clinics, practices, and services.
A unique feature of the conference is the opportunity for participants to work in small collaborative groups with a faculty mentor to develop and implement an action plan for a worksite-specific quality improvement management/leadership challenge. CME and CE units are available to all participants, and additional credits are awarded to those who complete their quality improvement project post-course.
At the end of the course, participants should be able to
• Identify unique characteristics of geriatric health care services
• Describe and apply key elements of business/organizational theory to medical practice
• Apply geriatric leadership and management skills to medical practice
• Describe at least three models for geriatric practice
• Apply collaborative problem solving skills
• Apply mentor/mentee skills
• Create and implement an action plan to address a worksite management/leadership issue.
