Evidence-Based Cliical Care Lecture Series

Evidence-Based Clinical Care Lecture Series

All programs originate at the Landon Center on Aging on The University of Kansas Medical Center campus at 3599 Rainbow Blvd., Kansas City, KS.

The Evidence‐based Clinical Care Series offers educational programs on best practices and current topics in geriatrics for all levels of care providers regardless of the care settings in which they practice. Programs explore the full cycle of care from assessment to treatment outcomes for many conditions affecting older adults. Programs are developed and presented by a wide range of experts - many from the KUMC faculty, as well as by professionals practicing in the region.

These are public programs that typically originate on the campus of the University of Kansas Medical Center in Kansas City and are broadcast simultaneously by Interactive Televideo (ITV) to sites across the region. This allows two way, real‐time video and audio communication between participants at multiple locations and the speakers. Current program offerings are listed on our Home page.
