Join Dr. Lindquist for the following session during our Third Annual National Caregiving Conference:

Updates in Geriatrics to Help Caregivers Advocate for their Loved Ones on Saturday, Nov. 10, at 3 p.m.
Ensuring seniors receive quality health care and benefit from the most up to date clinical research is of great importance to their caregivers. It is difficult for health care providers to read every publication relevant to their patients’ needs. Sometimes, patients and/or their loved ones will bring printed health articles or news clippings to the attention of treating physicians for consideration. This presentation will provide information on the most important advances in geriatrics and the health care of older adults published recent years. In addition, ways of advocating and negotiating with the health care team will be discussed to ensure implementation of evidence based healthcare and that seniors and their caregivers receive the best quality health care.
