Online Geriatric Health Issues & Aging Curriculum


We are excited to announce the initial launching of our new and improved MTGEC Online Geriatric Health Issues and Aging Curriculum!  MTGEC has been working hard to bring you a better online experience.  A major change to the site is our web design. Our new look includes rich content, easy navigation, a clean design and vibrant graphics/videos to deliver maximum impact. 

Currently, the curriculum has converted 10 of its modules into the new format:

  • Biology of Aging
  • Cognitive Decline and Dementia in Older Adults
  • Collaborative Practices for the Clinical Environment
  • End-of-Life Care in Older Adults
  • Health Promotion and Wellness in Older Adults
  • Nutritional Concerns in Older Adults
  • Patients for Partners
  • Psychosocial Issues of Aging
  • Screening for Cognitive Impairment in Older Adults
  • Screening for Depression in Older Adults

The above list does not include all of the modules MTGEC currently offers.  Modules are converted according to use demand and revision timelines.  Access to the modules not yet converted will be included in the registration in the old format. 

Another exciting announcement with the new design is that MTGEC is offering the course through the end of the current grant cycle, June 2019, for FREE!! 


The curriculum is a valuable resource for professional development and/or personal growth.  With several courses to choose from it meets a variety of learning needs for professionals, students and faculty working within the health care sector across the state. Courses focus on aging and associated health issues, are interdisciplinary in context, current in best practices and approved for continuing education/contact hours (CEU’s) for nurses, pharmacists, social workers, licensed counselors, occupational therapists, physical therapists, and nursing home administrators. 

Upon successful completion of a course, continuing education units (CEU’s) will be awarded and a certificate issued.  Registration to the course gains participants 24/7 access to the curriculum for one year, providing a self-paced format with the flexibility to fit busy scheduling needs.
