  • Title: Overview
    Descriptive info: Enhancing Geriatric Care through Practicing Physician Education.. PROJECT OVERVIEW.. Many community-based primary care physicians will soon spend the majority of their time caring for older adults..

They are also trained to teach an organized, office-based approach to managing common geriatric conditions, using the specially  ...   of Physicians, American Geriatrics Society, Veterans Administration, and various medical schools and healthcare institutions have created a pool of 180 facilitators..

A formal evaluation.. of the train-the-trainer model was conducted from 1999 to 2001.. Evidence of the model s effectiveness includes:.. High satisfaction with facilitators teaching skills ( 4.. 21, Likert scale 1-5, on 7 items measuring teaching performance)..

A high percentage of providers developing practical plans for evaluation and education of patients with the syndromes for which tool kits were developed.. Self-reported practice change through the use of specific patient evaluation and education tools 6 months post-intervention.. High ratings for the added value of interactive sessions compared with off-the-shelf reviews.. back to top..
