Geriatric Healthcare Series
Our long running lecture series brings easily accessible geriatrics education focusing on age- and dementia-friendly care to a wide range of primary care providers and health professions trainees across a vast geographic area, most of it rural and medically underserved.
Annually, two series are offered:
- General Geriatrics topics
- Alzheimer’s Disease and Related Dementias topics
Each series coincides with the University of Washington’s Winter and Spring quarters and consists of 10 lectures delivered virtually each week for 10 weeks. Our speakers are topic experts and well positioned to deliver the most up-to-date, clinically relevant evidence to our participants. Participants can obtain continuing education (CE) credits for both series (1.5 hours per lecture). Participants may attend the live virtual lectures or watch the recording on their own.
Our virtual lectures are delivered to over 1,000 participants mainly within the Northwestern United States.
A wide range of health professionals: Physicians, Nurse Practitioners, Physician Assistants, Nurses, Social Workers, Health Professional Students, Community-based Advocates and Information & Assistance Staff, Home Care Workers or Aids, Human Service Coordinators, Family Caregivers.
90-minute lectures on primary care focused geriatric healthcare topics. Lectures are about 75 minutes followed by 15 minutes of Q&A.
