COVID-19 and Older Adults: What have we learned? How can we do better?

The UCSF Division of Geriatrics Grand Rounds is being held on Wednesday, May 27th at 4pm PT / 5pm MT / 6pm CT / 7pm ET and is entitled “COVID-19 and Older Adults: What have we learned?  How can we do better?” In this Grand Rounds, three major gap areas underscored by the COVID-19 pandemic will be discussed which have disproportionately affected older persons:

–  Loneliness & Social Isolation
–  Long-Term Care
–  Goal-Concordant Care

The focus will be on what we have learned during this pandemic and how can we do better to improve the lives of older persons in these areas
