cm-overviewBackground

 The modules in the Ethnogeriatrics Overview were originally developed by members of the Collaborative of Ethnogeriatric Education in 1999 and 2000, with support from the Bureau of Health Professions, Health Resources and Services Administration. The first edition of the Curriculum was reviewed, revised, and expanded by working groups from the membership of the Collaborative. This group is composed of faculty from 31 Geriatric Education Centers throughout the United States which serve as regional resource centers for geriatric education for multiple health care disciplines.The modules were developed to serve as a basic generic curriculum in ethnogeriatrics. Ethnic- specific information is included as examples of the concepts only.
