Course Description
The annual UofL Geriatrics symposium, sponsored by the Institute for Sustainable Health & Optimal Aging, is a regional resource for up to date training and information regarding the care of older adults.  The world’s population, including in the United States, is aging at an exponential rate.  Currently there are only 7,162 allopathic and osteopathic certified geriatricians in the US.  This translates to one geriatrician for every 2,620 Americans over 75 years old.  The projected increase in the number of older Americans is expected to change this ratio to one geriatrician for every 3,798 older Americans in 2030.  Due to the projected shortfall of experts in geriatrics to provide for the rapidly aging US population, it is necessary for all providers to have some exposure and hopefully expert training in geriatrics principles in order to fulfill the increasing need to provide care for older adults. The University of Louisville Annual Geriatrics Symposium is a daylong event which offers an interdisciplinary (MDs, PharmDs, RNs, NPs, MSWs, Administrators and more) audience CE and immersion in geriatric training skills.  The symposium aims to present the most updated skills training and theories on varied topics related to the care of the geriatric patient.  It is a rare and reliable regional opportunity for professionals to gain live training, interactive discussion and feedback about the care of the elderly.  This year, we are pleased to present several renowned leaders in geriatrics and optimizing aging independence as plenary speakers, along with a variety of choices for breakout sessions.   

Target Audience
The target audience for this seminar is multidisciplinary including physicians, nurses, dentists, nurse practitioners, social workers, long term care professionals, in home care providers to elders and all others interested in the topics presented.
