GERIATRIC 5Ms - Spotlight on Innovative Applications
Members of the Division of Geriatrics and Palliative Care, VA Boston Healthcare System have developed a workshop based around the GERIATRIC 5Ms that maps to the current Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) core competencies in geriatrics for internal and family medicine residents. Analysis demonstrated that this longitudinal, interactive, case-based workshop using the GERIATRIC 5Ms framework improved primary care residents’ self-efficacy and knowledge of tools in the care of older adults and geriatric competencies outlined by the ACGME. The workshop offers an innovative and efficient method to teach geriatrics to residents in primary care and prepare them to care for an aging population.
