Welcome Clinicians, Service Providers and Community Members to the 18th Annual Rocky Mountain Geriatrics Conference. Rising geriatric populations, multiple chronic diseases and burgeoning needs for long term care and home health services are just some
of the facets of aging facing our healthcare and service provider communities. Providers working with older adults need to be equipped with efficient and effective ways to care for this growing patient population. Please join us for 2-days of
education and knowledge exchange presented by clinicians and researchers providing the latest information of work being done in the aging sector. Some of the topics include research in aging information, clinical quality improvement for patients/residents
in outpatient, skilled nursing settings, and home health located in urban and rural settings, and new innovation models and frameworks for patient/resident care delivery. This conference provides an unique opportunity to bring clinicians, researchers
and service providers, who work with older adults to share best practices, network and learn from each other.
