Available for all Aquifer Geriatrics subscribers
Aquifer is excited to announce that a new Aquifer Geriatrics case on frailty will be available on May 1, 2022. The new case is divided into three short patient encounters and covers frailty from a variety of angles, directly addressing one of the American Geriatrics Society’s core competencies for medical students.
The case, Aquifer Geriatrics 28, follows three patients, two in the clinic and one in a nursing home. Students are asked to evaluate each patient’s level of frailty and how it affects their care. Key learning points in the case include defining frailty, identifying different stages of frailty, understanding the adverse outcomes among older adults, and incorporating frailty as a predictor of a patient’s long-term prognosis.
The new case was written and peer-reviewed by medical educators on the Aquifer Geriatrics Course Board and is appropriate for all health professions students. As with all Aquifer signature cases, the case on frailty can be added to any custom course and includes student progress reporting. From an Aquifer account, the new case is accessible from the Aquifer Geriatrics signature course and via the searchable Content Library.
