Skilled nursing facilities experienced some of the first clusters of COVID-19 outbreaks in the United States. In this episode, geriatrician Lee Lindquist will discuss how the characteristics of COVID-19 and the policies surrounding testing contributed to the spread of the virus in skilled nursing facilities. She will outline practical policies that skilled nursing facilities can implement to protect their patients and staff, and stop the spread of infection within their facilities. Lastly, she will discuss opportunities for policy changes moving forward to prevent future outbreaks in these vulnerable settings.

FAQ for the Pharmacotherapy of Alcohol and Opioid Use Disorders

In the U.S., about 15.1 million people have an alcohol use disorder and about 4.8 million misuse opioids. This session focuses on the pharmacotherapy of alcohol and opioid use disorders. The faculty will describe and contrast naltrexone and acamprosate treatments for alcohol use disorder and discuss the use of buprenorphine/naloxone to treat opioid use disorder.Guest: Petros Levounis, MD, MA

Mobility disorders are a menace of old age, often resulting in falls, injuries, and especially hip fractures -- the sixth leading cause of death in the elderly. Primary care physicians have difficulties in both detecting and correctly identifying these abnormalities. In a paper published in the Journal of the American Geriatrics Society in 2004 [52(9):1527-31], the authors concluded that "community physicians appear to underdetect falls and gait disorders, leading to a paucity of recommendations and treatments." Hence the need to revisit the most common gait abnormalities. This multimedia presentation will provide a panorama of bipedalism, from its origin six million years ago in the savannahs of East Africa, to its rise as the unique trait of our species, and eventually to its status as a major cause of disability once full bipedalism is lost. The talk will review the physiology of ambulation and the prevalence of gait disorders in the population. In addition to detailed information on psychogenic and antalgic gaits, participants will learn about the seven major gait abnormalities. Whenever possible, the speaker will enliven the delivery by reviewing "famous patients," or vignettes of historical figures and celebrities who suffered the disorder.
