Monthly Case Conference Presentations: 

These monthly conferences consist of a 15-20 minute discussion of a geriatric medicine topic followed by one or two patient cases presented by ​staff from primary care clinics. Geriatric specialists provide ​the brief didactic and the panel for the case discussion. Each panel includes a geriatrician, geriatric psychiatrist, pharmacist, social worker and primary care liaison (community services representative). Only the didactic components are posted to protect patient confidentiality. Submit a case for review.
