This educational initiative was sponsored by the Elderly Care in Hospital (ECHo) Program, led by Dr. Cristina Hendrix, and the Durham VA Geriatric Research, Education, and Clinical Center (GRECC), led by Dr. Kenneth Schmader, Professor of Medicine and Chief, Division of Geriatrics, Duke University Medical Center. Both of them served as faculty in the conference. The interprofessional program is a hybrid (online and face-to-face) educational program that introduces healthcare providers to the basic principles of geriatric nursing.
