    With baby boomers aging and people living longer, more physicians, especially primary care physicians, are seeing more older patients. Office visits with these patients can be time-consuming and frustrating for both physician and patient; often the problems revolve around poor communication on both sides. This webinar offers proven, practical ways to engage elderly patients and their families while managing the office visit effectively — as well as to broach difficult topics like taking away the keys and end-of-life care. In addition, the webinar discusses liability issues that are unique to caring for elderly patients.


    Program Highlights

    This webinar shows you how to:

    • Anticipate the challenges of seeing older patients and adopt procedures to make office visits go smoothly,

    • Focus discussion with patients and families on what the patients can do, rather than what they no longer can or should do,

    • Learn effective techniques for talking about topics from medication changes to driving safety to hospice care, and

    • Recognize where treating elderly patients may have extra liability considerations.
