To assess changes in participant knowledge and competence, the Geriatrics Emergency Department Collaborative (GEDC) Educational Curriculum contains both a pre-activity assessment and a Continuing Medical Education (CME) exam (post-test). The pre-activity assessment is designed to test participant knowledge before reviewing the educational content and listening to the corresponding audio companions. These data will be used to help the American Geriatrics Society (AGS) and GEDC to measure the effectiveness of this CME activity.
Before starting the GEDC Educational Curriculum please complete the pre-test assessment that follows. The pre-test is designed to facilitate your study of this material. Pre-test questions will be repeated within the CME post-test questions.
