Information sites

MIAH is responding to the survey findings by unveiling a new, unique set of tools and resources on its Web site designed to improve geriatric care and build a better relationship between patient and physician. Four out of five physicians surveyed search for medical information about treating older patients. A little over half of them use the Internet.

The new “toolkits” are aimed at improving geriatric care and encouraging patients and their caregivers to learn about geriatric conditions and discuss them with their physicians. The toolkits include a number of resources to help physicians diagnose and treat older patients and to assist physicians with patient education, data gathering and record keeping. They were developed by the Practicing Physician Education Project through the American Geriatrics Society.

The first topics for the toolkits are memory loss, urinary incontinence, depression and falls.

“The new MIAH Web site is a valuable asset for older adults and their families who need and want reliable and accessible information on aging and health,” said John Rother, a member of the MIAH Advisory Board and Director of Legislation and Public Policy for AARP. Rother also said, “I have no doubt that the MIAH site will help set the standard and raise the bar for aging Web sites.”

Also new on the Web site are news reviews on the latest aging/health stories and the Web’s very first free geriatric journal club for physicians, provided by the Mount Sinai School of Medicine.
