Our Center is working with primary care providers in San Diego and Imperial Counties to ensure they have the skills, tools and resources needed to optimally assess and address the primary care needs of older adult patients. Training largely focuses on Alzheimer's Disease and Related Dementias (ADRD), along with providing Age-Friendly Healthcare centered on the "4Ms" (Mentation, Medications, Mobility and what Matters).
Trainings on ADRD are offered to primary care providers across San Diego and Imperial Counties. Additionally, the SDIGEC has partnered with multiple Federally Qualified Health Centers and Programs of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly and are working to develop trainings base on provider needs and interests.
Dementia Care Aware
Dementia Care Aware empowers primary care providers and their teams to screen for dementia. Take our training on a 5-10-minute cognitive screening tool called the cognitive health assessment (CHA). This tool can be used annually or whenever a cognitive screen is indicated, such as during Medicare Annual Wellness Visit.
