Interactive Geriatric Workshops

UCLA Geriatric Skills Workshops – Tuesday, Sept 12th

Presented by the UCLA David Geffen School of Medicine, the Interactive Geriatric Workshops are structured to provide in-depth insights and specialized knowledge pertinent to health care professionals who wish to enhance their ability to care for older adults. This year, we are offering three interactive workshops on a variety of topics including geriatric cardiovascular diseases (offered in two parts), transitions in care, and complementary and alternative medicine. Attendees may choose to attend one or more of these interactive, skill-developing sessions.

The workshops will be held on Tuesday, September 12th, 2017. Pre-registration is required. Participants may register for the workshops without registering for the UCLA Intensive Course and Board Review taking place the following day. For more information on registration, please visit the UCLA CME website .

Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is the leading cause of death and major disability in older adults. This comprehensive two-part program highlights the recent medical literature and evidence-based guidelines in caring for CVD in the geriatric population, and provides an exciting glimpse into the exponential rise in percutaneous repair/replacement technologies in structural heart disease.

The morning session (Part A) will focus on valvular disease and frailty while the afternoon session (Part B) will discuss common challenges to geriatric cardiology, including topics on anticoagulation, carotid artery disease, congestive heart failure, and implantable cardioverter defibrillators. You may choose to attend one or both sessions.

Each part is approved for a maximum of 3.5 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit(s)™
