Project ECHO - Assessing and Caring for Persons with Cognitive Impairment

Posted 18 days ago

Rhode Island Geriatric Education Center is currently recruiting participants for our Project ECHO series, Assessing and Caring for Persons with Cognitive Impairment that begins on 10/21/21.  This Project ECHO is a free, practical, case-based education series for health care providers who want to enhance their knowledge, competence, and performance related to improving care for older adults, especially those with cognitive impairment. While we encourage interdisciplinary teams from sites to participate, it is not a requirement.  Included below is a list of sessions, topics, and speakers along with a flyer that describes the program in more detail and a registration link.
