A Win – Win – Win: When Gerontology and Geriatrics Work Together

By: Phyllis A. Greenberg, PhD, MPA, Associate Professor of Gerontology and Coordinator, Graduate Studies in Gerontology, School of Health and Human Services, St. Cloud State University and George Schoephoerster, MD, Past President, Minnesota Medical Directors Association

There are no handouts for this webinar – it follows a conversational format.

A gerontologist and a geriatrician meet in a coffee shop! What follows is an exploration, through dialogue, of the respective roles of gerontology and geriatrics, their vision for the health and well-being of those they serve, and how, through collaboration, those visions can best be achieved.

By the end of this webinar, you will be able to:

  1. Explain how the life of older adults can be improved by the combination of skills and perspectives encompassed through gerontology and geriatrics
  2. Have a clearer understanding of the role of a gerontologist and a geriatrician
  3. Understand how this team approach can benefit older clientele, their practitioners, and their caregivers
