2021 National Acute Care for Elders (ACE) Conference Recorded Presentations
The National Acute Care for Elders (ACE) Virtual Conference trains and educates healthcare professionals across Advocate Aurora Health, as well as multiple other health systems across the country and beyond. We will continue to seize the opportunity to use technology and reach more healthcare workers than ever before by offering this conference virtually. By bringing in national speakers from around the world, this conference helps to implement best-practice models of care in our own communities and draws national attention towards the efforts to improve care for vulnerable, older adults.
This course is intended for Physicians, nurses, physician assistants, physical/occupational/speech therapists, social workers, and other allied health care providers involved in the care of older adults.
At the end of this session, learners should be able to:
- Understand and address the unique vulnerabilities of older adults who are acutely ill or injured.
- Describe practice improvements to better address the needs of older individuals in the emergency department, in our hospitals, in programs to avoid hospitalization, and in transition between health care settings.
- Describe key lessons learned as our health system prepares to care for populations of older Americans.
