This session presents 12-15 articles published in the past year which have the potential to impact the practice of medicine and the processes of care for frail elders across the continuum of care. All articles are chosen and critically appraised by experienced practitioners and educators from different disciplines. This presentation has been well received each year and often inspires spirited discussion.
Identify key articles that influence medical care, improve processes of care, reduce polypharmacy, improve non-pharmaceutical management of behavior, address ethical matters, and highlight public health issues in long-term care
Describe the population, intervention, control group, and outcome for each study discussed
Apply the methods demonstrated to determine applicability to long-term care in future journal articles
