Abstract

At the end of this presentation, attendees will be able to: ? Describe the principles of Geriatrics that direct effective eldercare. ? Implement practice management strategies and professional behaviors that decrease unnecessary hospital readmission. ? Bypass electronic health record (HER) incompatibility to improve communication and coordination between care sites Empower family caregivers to fill their essential role in the new health care paradigm
