Geriatric Medicine
Services

 

 

  • Development of a College of Pharmacy sponsored ongoing series of "Brown Bag" programs whereby the students would provide a public service to various organizations of older people to provide periodic medication reviews. The intent of this program is to empower older people to be more actively involved in their own medication management such that inappropriate medication use is decreased and outcomes improved. Additional benefits would be gained by the students as part of their professional development.
  • Create contracts to develop geriatric continuing education models.
  • Attend and be visibly represented at local, regional and national meetings in the area of geriatric pharmacy and geriatrics/gerontology.
