June 16-17, 2022: Caring for Older Adults and Families
The Saint Louis University Summer Geriatric Institute is an annual continuing education event for practitioners, faculty, fellows, residents, and students who are or will provide care and services to older adults and their families. The Institute includes lectures and workshops by an interprofessional group of practitioners and researchers on new and emerging areas of geriatric medicine and services. As an extension of the Institute, a one-day training on Cognitive Stimulation Therapy (CST) will be offered. CST is a non-pharmacologic intervention for persons with mild to moderate dementia. The training fulfills the first requirement for CST Facilitator Certification.
The audience for this program includes students and professionals working with older adults, with a special emphasis on clinicians and administrators, including physicians, nurses, occupational therapists, social workers, physical therapists, speech therapists, dietitians, marriage and family therapists, nursing home administrators, and those who specialize in alternative medicine.
