2014 Geriatric Interdisciplinary Translational Research Institute
5/20/2014 9:00 AM - 5/21/2014 3:00 PM
The 6th-Annual Geriatric Reynolds Interdisciplinary Translational Research Institute will be held May 20-21, 2014. This year's two-day program focuses on three topics that often intersect - aging, chronic illness and cancer.
The event is highlighted by a keynote address from Sarah Hope Kagan, professor and clinician educator at the University of Pennsylvania. Dr. Kagan's clinical research centers on human experience and illness, with a focus on symptom experience for older adults who have cancer.
The first day's sessions will focus on cancer in the context of aging. Sessions include:
"Cancer: A Chronic Disease in an Aging Society," presented by Sarah Hope Kagan, PhD, RN, FAAN
Chemotherapy Effects on the Aging Adult
Cancer Screening in Older Adults: Issues & Concerns
Day two brings an interdisciplinary focus on chronic illness issues. Sessions include:
Consent and Cognition Issues in Older Adults with Chronic Disease
Updated Neurology and Dementia Assessment Measures
Intervention Integrity with Cognitively-Impaired Older Adults
Registration is free for Oklahoma colleagues. Registration for out-of-state colleagues is $100, which covers all materials and lunches. This event is co-sponsored by The University of Oklahoma College of Nursing and the Stephenson Cancer Center.
