AGS Releases Seventh Edition of Geriatrics Review Syllabus
The American Geriatrics Society released the seventh edition of Geriatrics Review Syllabus: A Core Curriculum in Geriatric Medicine (GRS7) at the Society's Annual Scientific Meeting in Orlando in May.
Covering the latest developments in geriatric medicine, the GRS7 is an invaluable self-assessment, continuing education tool. James Pacala, MD, MS, AGSF and Gail Sullivan, MD, AGSF served as lead editors of the syllabus which features contributions from more than 100 AGS members and experts in the field. New in this edition are chapters on frailty, outpatient care systems and heart failure, and 290 completely new, case-oriented, self-assessment questions.
The GRS7 includes added emphases on evidence-based medicine and on quality assessment and improvement. New to this edition are strength-of-evidence ratings for key diagnostic, prognostic, and therapeutic information. Quality indicators from the Assessing Care of Vulnerable Elders-3 (ACOVE-3) project are included in selected chapters so that GRS7 purchasers can more easily use the GRS7 to measure and improve the quality of care in their practices.
GRS7 is an invaluable tool for those preparing to take board examinations and for those using it as a key teaching resource. GRS7 grants a total of 85 CME and 110 ABIM Maintenance of Certification lifelong learning points (MOC points available only through CD-ROM). It is available as a 3-volume set and in CD-ROM format. "GRS7 is the premier source of clinically relevant information on geriatrics for those who wish to expand and update their knowledge in the field," says Dr. Pacala.
