Curriculum

GeriaSims, from the Iowa Geriatric Education Center, are interactive virtual patient simulations for the care of older adults. They are intended for physicians, residents, fellows, and medical students in their clinical years; particular modules may also be useful to physician assistant or nurse practitioner learners. They are designed for primary care, but may also be beneficial to medical or surgical specialties. Topics include delirium, dementia, failure to thrive, falls, functional assessment, health literacy, hip fracture, ischemic stroke, palliative care, polypharmacy, and urinary incontinence. Each course takes approximately 1 hour to complete and is self-paced. The course is free to access after registering an account through Canvas.
