AGS Geriatrics Virtual Patient Case: Goals of care and shared decision making for a patient with colon cancer and possible metastases American Geriatrics Society
There is a significant shortfall of trained geriatricians to meet the healthcare needs of the older adult population, and older people are likely to need non-primary care from non-geriatrician specialists. The American Board of Medical Specialties (ABMS) and the American Geriatrics Society (AGS) developed the Geriatrics Virtual Patient Cases in order to provide non-geriatrician specialists with guidance on best practices in the care of older adults. This specific case will improve the skill of non-geriatrician diplomates in addressing goals of care and shared decision making with geriatric patients.
