Continuing Education

  This Continuing Education activity is jointly provided by CME Outfitters and The Gerontological Society of America.

 

To earn credits, you will need to add the continuing education option to your registration. Registration opens late June.


Overall Conference Goal

The 2020 Annual Scientific Meeting of The Gerontological Society of America is organized to foster interdisciplinary interactions among clinical, administrative, and research professionals in the field of gerontological health care. In addition to the core scientific sessions, the presentation of pre-conference workshops and poster sessions will encourage and stimulate diverse viewpoints in geriatric health, research, and economics. There is a recognized need to disseminate this educational information to geriatric health care professionals to optimize the care of elderly patients. Upon completion of sessions, participants will be able to apply new knowledge and skills in the areas of clinical physiology, organ-specific systemic disorders, clinical pharmacology and therapeutics, geriatric syndromes, community services, acute and long-term care issues, health care professional education and research, as well as ethics and economics.

Target Audience

Professionals attending the 2020 Annual Scientific Meeting of The Gerontological Society of America include gerontological researchers and practitioners from the biological, clinical (including physicians, physician assistants, nurses, pharmacists and dentists), behavioral and social sciences (including anthropologists, psychologists, social workers, and sociologists), as well as applied researchers, policy professionals, health care administrators, and economists. Others working in the area of geriatrics also will find the sessions of value and are encouraged to attend.

Participants must attend the entire scientific session and complete the CME Outfitters request for credit form and an online evaluation form to receive continuing education credit. Request for credit forms and directions on how to complete the online evaluation will be available on site at the registration desk. Certificates of attendance will be provided via e-mail following the conference by CME Outfitters. Continuing education materials will be accepted up to 30 days after the program takes place. A record of attendance will be kept on file by CME Outfitters.
