Welcome to the Geriatrics Albatross Learning Group

The Geriatrics Albatross Learning Group intent is to promote collaboration on education, research, operations, service offering.  We explore or share creative agile strategies or solutions. We look to integrate data to ensure your contributions or engagement at this channel supports a path of wellbeing for older adults, providers who practice in the field of geriatrics, and caregivers.

View the department sections below to register for CME-MOC activities.  On the pane called "Resources/Articles" you can find details on several initiatives and reference material including social work.

The information shared is only for Advocate Aurora Health (AAH) staff.  Please do not share content outside AAH.

In the discussion boards, and other sections of the learning channel, the content shared, and the contributions of the users do not represent the views of AAH.

On Fridays between 4 to 4:30 we will plan to be available to look at and engage at the discussion boards.  Reach out to Tom Triantafillou if you are interested in providing support on promoting such an activity.
