Chair’s Corner

The Geriatric EM Section is active with tremendous momentum from the section members involved in daily geriatric emergency patient care. The section’s goal is simple; to bring together our members who are passionate about geriatric emergency medicine. The board’s focus this year is on education opportunities, supporting GEDA/GEDC activities and Geriatric ED dissemination, and electing our first trainee board members. Join any of our monthly Zoom conference calls held the third Monday of each month at 11:00 CST/ 12:00 EST / 9:00 PST. These calls are open to GEMS members and designed to be a discussion hub for the latest geriatric topics and activities. Also, if you have an innovation, idea, or even a pet peeve to share, reach out to us on the ACEP Engaged platform.  

This Newsletter includes 1) feature pieces on two geriatric experts: Nicole Cimino-Fiallos, MD, FACEP; and Cameron Gettel, MD; 2) information on where to find geriatric CME that qualifies as the “8 domains” of GEM, 3) an announcement of an upcoming webinar focused on EMRs, and 4) the Geriatric ED accreditation tracking board. Enjoy!
