Aging Institute Partnership with The Geriatric Education Center of Pennsylvania
The Aging Institute collaborates with a number of partners to create dynamic and relevant education for those who care for older adults.
One such partner is The Geriatric Education Center of Pennsylvania (GEC/PA), a consortium of The University of Pittsburgh, Penn State University, and Temple University with mission to create and provide various educational programs to healthcare professionals in the areas of elder care issues.
Through this partnership, the Aging Institute and other partners from the Department of Veteran Affairs, the University of Pittsburgh, UPMC and other community partners have been able to focus on topic areas such as:
- Pain management
The GEC is working to create quality improvement projects and educational toolkits for use in both the long-term care setting and other centers of care. Learn more about the Depression and Adjustment in the Nursing Home Resource Tool Kit.
