The Year in Review

  • In this address, the speakers will present 12-15 themed articles published in the past year, which have the potential to impact the practice of medicine and the processes of care for older adults in the continuum of care. All articles are chosen through a Modified Delphi approach and critically appraised by experienced practitioners and educators. After each speaker, one member of an expert interprofessional discussant panel will offer a five-minute meta-view perspective to help the attendees apply the evidence to their clinical practice.
  • Speakers: Milta Little, DO, CMD; Julie Gammack, MD, CMD; Angela Sanford, MD, CMD

  • Identify publications that are controversial and/or may affect the direction of research.
  • Describe techniques for critiquing publications.
  • Discuss the recent evidence relevant to PALTC populations.
