The goal of this conference, consistent with the ASCP Educational Affairs goal, is to enhance participant knowledge and competencies in providing pharmaceutical care to elderly individuals as part of the interdisciplinary team, which results in their improved health and well-being. Knowledge, competencies, and needs in the following general areas will be enhanced:

  • The education sessions are knowledge-based activities where the participant will acquire factual knowledge OR application-based activities where case studies address the application of knowledge.
