Aims of CRIT:

  • To foster collaboration among disciplines in the management of complex older patients
  • To incorporate geriatrics principles into teaching and administrative roles as Chief Residents
  • To develop leadership/teaching skills around the care of complex older patients.
  • To enhance leadership/teaching skills required in the Chief Resident role.
  • To develop an achievable project related to education or patient care in Geriatrics, to be implemented during the Chief Residency year.

The retreat program included an unfolding interactive case divided into three modules, following a geriatric patient from presentation in clinic to the emergency department to hospital discharge.
Each module included evidence-based mini-lectures on topics in Geriatrics, small group interactive exercises, and seminars designed to enhance teaching and leadership skills.
Each Chief Resident also attended two consultation sessions to develop an action plan for a project.
