The Central Plains Geriatric Education Center (CPGEC) has been providing geriatric training and resources to facilitate and promote high quality, evidence-based and state-of-the-art care to the older population since 1998. The CPGEC is housed at the Landon Center on Aging, on the campus of the University of Kansas Medical Center (KUMC). Its continuing education programs are developed to meet the needs of health and human services professionals - RNs, LPNs, CNAs, LMHTs, Administrators, Aides, Social Workers, Physical Therapists, Occupational Therapists, and other Allied Health Professionals - who care for geriatric patients in long-term care, home health and other settings.
All of the programs will originate at the Landon Center on Aging on the campus of the University of Kansas Medical Center. Additionally, the programs will be broadcast by Interactive Televideo (ITV) to other sites across the region. We have confirmed the availability of ITV sites located in the offices of the KU Area Health Education Centers (AHECs) and some additional sites across the state. We have included this information with program listings. We will continue to make these programs available to other ITV sites across the region as requested and as the host sites are available. If your facility is not one of our current ITV sites but has ITV capability, please contact us if you would like more information on becoming an ITV site for our programs.
If you do not have ITV equipment, the programs are also available via Adobe Connect. Adobe Connect is a web-based conferencing system, which also allows you to see and hear the speaker and slides, and allows interaction through text chat.
