SP39: Development of geriatric skill sets to enhance learning in an innovative geriatric longitudinal experience setting(2011)
In the fall of 2007, the University of Utah Family Medicine Residency Program received an RRC variance in the continuity of care longitudinal geriatric experience which allowed the program to move from a long-term care/nursing home facility to an assisted living experience. Results of this 2 year project showed a significant increase in satisfaction for both faculty and learners, but competency evaluations did not meet expected goals. Based on these findings, the 19-point direct observation competency form was divided into smaller skill sets that would be more time-efficient to apply and teach. The finished product is a series of Geriatric Skill Sets that are available as templates within the Epic electronic medical record in both the assisted-living facility and the residents’ home clinic practices.
