Geriatric Case Studies

ABOUT THE CASE STUDIES

MTGEC has developed a series of geriatric case studies that present a geriatric patient with health concerns.  They are designed to be used in classroom setting or for staff development.

The case studies are written from the perspective of a variety of professionals including nurses, pharmacists, social workers and physical therapists.  Each case is designed to provide in-depth background and information from one of these disciplines.  The interprofessional team perspectives have been approached to some degree, but are not comprehensive.  It is the expectation that these case studies provide a good basis or starting point to be used in a classroom or training situation in which an interprofessional team will come together to determine how this patient could be managed.  Local resources and team members should be utilized in determining a care plan for the patient.   Focus should be placed on patient outcomes with the patient and caregivers as members of the care team.

CASE STUDIES AVAILABLE
