The UCSF Geriatrics Workforce Enhancement Program is empowering Northern California to meet the needs facing older adults. This free CME telehealth module series for providers is comprised of short 10-15 minute educational videos for busy learners. Learners can decide which modules are of interest and 'earn as they learn' or accrue CME credits with each module completed. Through these modules you will learn to: (1) Perform aspects of a geriatrics assessment in a virtual format; (2) Discuss capacity, financial decision making, and advance care planning in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic; (3) Assess and assist with unmet social needs impacted by shelter-in-place orders or quarantining; and (4) Obtain updates on the management of older adults residing in long term care or congregate living facilities as pertinent to primary care providers.
