About this course:

This course provides an overview of available interdisciplinary team (IDT) best practice to improve quality of care and prevent adverse outcomes for frail older adults. IDT approaches include comprehensive geriatric assessment, evidence-based practice and best practice tools, expanded rehab services, strong communication among IDT members, and resident and caregiver education. Clinicians should be aware of unique patient goals in order to integrate timely palliative and hospice care as well as a comprehensive plan for transitions of care.
