Competencies Curriculum for Post-Acute and Long-Term Care Medicine - Domain I: Foundation

Competencies Curriculum for Post-Acute and Long-Term Care Medicine - Domain I: Foundation 

AMDA – The Society for Post-Acute and Long-Term Care Medicine has defined competencies for the practice of post-acute and long-term care (PALTC) medicine so that attending physicians who practice in this setting can effectively provide their patients with quality care. The Competencies Curriculum online training program was developed to support the Competencies for Post-Acute and Long-Term Care Medicine and disseminate education on cornerstones of knowledge needed to practice as an attending physician in PALTC.

 

The practice of PALTC medicine requires knowledge and skills drawn from various specialties including internal, family, hospital, and rehabilitation medicine, geriatrics, psychiatry, and palliative care. While necessary for effective practice, none of these discipline-specific competencies are alone sufficient to describe the full range of PALTC competencies. Rather, they must reflect a mix of many of the skills unique to each of these disciplines which must then be operationalized within a unique care setting with its unique regulatory requirements while incorporating the full skill set of the entire interdisciplinary team.

The Competencies Curriculum has been divided into five domains. Within each domain are sections, each of which include a pre/post-test, interactive presentations with cases, questions, and evaluation. Please see each domain for a detailed outline of what will be discussed.
