29th Annual Virtual Clinical Update in Geriatric Medicine Virtual Meeting (Western Pennsylvania Stat

Starts:  Apr 8, 2021 7:00 AM (ET)
Ends:  Apr 9, 2021 4:15 PM (ET)

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

Ø Geriatric Cardiology Symposium featuring authors of AHA/ACC Guidelines for the Elderly

Ø Insightful Palliative Care tips from the co-creator of the widely-used VitalTalk®

Ø Pearls on Incontinence from the co-developer of the AHRQ, MDS, and WHO guidelines

Ø Diagnostic “Curve Balls” from the Consultation Center

Ø State-of-the-Art updates for most common geriatric conditions, with the approach tailored to each clinical setting, i.e., office, hospital, home, nursing home

Ø Special topics:

· Dementia-related psychosis

· Case studies in Pain Management

· Geriatric dermatology

· Tough cases in diabetes

Ø “Ask the Expert” sessions: Ask specific questions about problems in your own practice

We hope you will register for what promises to be a superb conference…
