Geriatric Care in an Age-Friendly Health System

Second and fourth Tuesdays of each month, 7:30 - 8:30 a.m., September 22, 2020 - April 13, 2021

Primary care clinicians and their teams are cordially invited to participate in the Geriatric Care ECHO, sponsored by the Oregon ECHO Network.

This 12-session ECHO series will build the capacity of primary care clinicians and their teams to diagnose and treat common outpatient geriatric patient care issues. Topics may include:

  • Diagnosis and treatment of dementia, depression, and anxiety

  • Insomnia management (pharmacological and non-pharmacological)

  • Pain management (pharmacological and non-pharmacological)

  • Mobility in older adults with mental health diagnoses

  • Advance care planning processes

Benefits of participation include:

  • No cost to you or your facility

  • No cost continuing medical education (CME) credits*

  • The opportunity to present your tough cases and receive feedback from a multidisciplinary team of specialists and peers

We will select up to 10 primary care teams to participate based on their interest in the program, geographic distribution throughout Oregon, and ability to commit to attend the sessions. Prescribing clinicians (MD, DO, NP, PA) are encouraged to invite up to two other staff members who are in a position to champion change in their organizations, such as nurses, behavioral health specialists, medical assistants, practice managers, and quality improvement specialists.
