This second webinar presents an interdisciplinary geriatric assessment which can promote older adults’ wellness and independence and maintain or improve their functional status and quality of life by considering physical, cognitive, psychological, and social domains. This webinar focuses on a rapid geriatrics screen that can be accomplished in a busy clinical setting to identify target areas where a more in-depth assessment is needed to develop a comprehensive, coordinated care plan. How to communicate effectively with older adults and their families is also addressed, as well as home assessment, and identifying community services available to help meet assessed needs. Case studies demonstrate the use of various assessment tools and the key follow-up steps needed for quality care management.
