As the proportion of older adults increases, providing up to date and quality care to them is of great importance to general internists, who provide the bulk of their primary care. Update in Geriatrics will review important advances in the clinical care of older adults published recently. Topics will include advances in the diagnosis and management of geriatric syndromes, management of multi-morbidity, and systems of care. Chronic disease treatment trials focused on older adults or with a significant proportion of older adults will also be included. The strength of the evidence will be discussed as well as potential impact the work could have on current clinical practice and education. Articles selection criteria will emphasize high quality studies that may be immediately applicable in practice.

In this podcast, Dr. Shirah Vollmer will outline how certain symptoms are a manifestation of inability to cope with stressors. She will explain how previously well-managed patients who have learned to deal with their symptoms, may now face an exacerbation. Understanding how symptoms develop and putting them into context of the current situation will help both clinician and patient form a deeper alliance and thereby diminish patient suffering. Please note that any data, indications, and guidelines presented in this activity are current as of the recording on 05/04/2020 and they are subject to change as new information is published.

In this podcast we review the COBALT study which examines the benefits of behavioral treatments (pelvic floor muscle training and fluid restriction before bedtime) alone or combined with drug therapy to treat OAB symptoms.
