Advances in Post-Acute and Long-Term Care Symposium

The Advances in Post-Acute and Long-Term Care (PALTC) Symposium is a gathering of colleagues and professionals interested in approaches to enhance the quality of care and life of older adults in the post-acute and long-term care continuum. The Department of Geriatrics has hosted this conference for the past four years.

At previous symposiums, nationally-recognized experts have focused on a range of both clinical and policy related issues such as the evolving role of the nurse practitioner and physician assistants, transitions of care, medical foster homes, and the evolution from a fee-based reimbursement system to one that is value-based. Past topics have also included physician influence on complex decision making and team functioning, effective infection control programs, and antipsychotic medication reduction programs.

This year, we are teaming up with the Nova Southeastern University GWEP to host a live webinar on updates in geriatric care and the how the continuum of care is changing based on the COVID-19 experience in an all-day virtual conference titled Re-envisioning Elder Care. We are also partnering with the Florida Geriatrics Society and hosting our event side-by-side with their annual meeting. To learn more, view the Re-envisioning Elder Care Brochure. Register here:
