Rajean P. Moone, PhD, LNHA, LALD, authored this toolkit supported by colleagues of the Interprofessional Geriatrics Coordinating Council. Rajean is the Faculty Director for Long Term Care Administration in the College of Continuing & Professional Studies and the Associate Director for Education in the School of Public Health’s Center for Healthy Aging & Innovation. The foundational content for this toolkit was obtained from the Training to Serve curriculum which is provided by Rainbow Health Minnesota.
This toolkit contains two components: a Learner Module and a compendium of Teaching and Learning Resources.
The Learner Module is designed for students. It is a digital, interactive learning activity. To assign the module to students, instructors can click on the Learner Module icon to the left and copy the URL into their teaching documents for their learners to access. The module is free and accessible to all.
Note: When accessing the learner module, some users may wish to use the CTRL/Command + or – function to adjust the size of the text on their screen.
The Faculty Resources document is intended to provide preceptors and other instructors with activities and training ideas for health professional students following their completion of the Ageism learning module.
