About the On-line Didactic Modules

Learners will complete five online modules designed to teach them the core concepts of integrated, community based, primary geriatric care and behavioral health care. Topics to be covered include: roles of the interprofessional team members, motivational interviewing and three case based modules focusing on the care of an older adult with complicated co-morbid chronic conditions in need of behavioral health and community support. These modules were created in an interactive software program (Softchalk©) which links to videos, websites and activities. These modules should be completed BEFORE clinical rotations, ICME or Critical Reflection sessions. 

Content Modules: 

  • Three geriatric, online, case-based didactic modules focus on the care of an older adult with complicated, co-morbid, chronic conditions and a lack of community support.  The modules use problem-based learning to introduce core interprofessional geriatric care concepts and put learners on the same level from diverse background and experiences.
  • A 4th module will address interprofessional teams and practice, specifically care planning.
  • A 5th module will focus on family system level training in Motivational Interviewing (MI) where learners will be trained to intervene using systemic MI that looks at the system surrounding the patient as the change unit.
  • Learners complete all five modules prior to other learning activities. Independent. 5 hours.
