I hope you’ll save April 8-9, 2021 for our 29th Clinical Update in Geriatric Medicine. Although this year it will be in a virtual format, the goal is unchanged: to help you provide superb care to older adults by ensuring that each lecture, symposium, and breakout session provides evidence-based “pearls” that you can immediately incorporate into your practice.
In addition to nationally renowned experts, this award-winning course has two key aspects:
Ø It focuses on common but confounding conditions, those for which research (much done in Pittsburgh) is revealing new approaches with immediate, practical application.
Ø It’s delivered by highly regarded clinician-educators and clinician-researchers who have both the experience with these approaches and the ability to teach them effectively.
Course Highlights Include:
Ø Deprescribing tips by an international authority
Ø Update on Covid-19 in Postacute Longterm care by 2 national experts, including the President of AMDA and the creator of a nationally-acclaimed statewide initiative.
Ø Strategies to optimize Telemedicine visits
Ø Osteoporosis, by the President of the National Osteoporosis Foundation
