This course approaches geriatrics from a holistic systems perspective. The current delivery system is segmented, making it difficult for older patients to receive comprehensive care. Incorporating geriatric principles from multiple disciplines, this course is designed to prepare future pharmacists to serve as accessible and knowledgeable healthcare providers, able to help older patients, and their caretakers, navigate through a complex healthcare system. The course will be taught from the perspective of a pharmacist facilitating continuity of care and will include topics such as economics, socialization, cultural competence, caregiver support, housing, potential abuse, supportive care, mental health, dental, preventative care, and healthcare benefits.
