072IC - Geriatric Urology: Basic Principles for Urologic Practice

Monday, May 21
1:30 PM - 3:30 PM
Location: MCC WEST, 2006

This course will provide an introduction to some of the basic concepts of geriatrics required for evaluation and management of the elderly urology patient. Presentations are designed to be of benefit for both the practicing urologist and the urology resident-in-training. Specific subjects to be covered, based on peer-reviewed literature and on specialty society guidelines (American Geriatrics Society), will include: Additional steps in the initial evaluation of the elderly patient to evaluate for common geriatric conditions that may affect urologic care such as delirium, dementia, depression, falls and gait disorders, and cardiovascular diseases; Alterations in the determination of need for additional evaluation and/or recommendations for treatment; and decisions on definitive therapy for specific conditions including urinary tract infection and bacteriuria, urologic malignancies, palliative and end-of-life care and pain management, and catheter management. Case-based examples will be used to highlight illustrated principles.
