Influencing Care: Kaiser SF Geriatric Emergency Dept Advisory Council

June 16, 2021 @ 12:30 pm - 1:30 pm

Geriatric Emergency Department: San Francisco ER Collaborative - Institute  on Aging % %


During December 2020, Institute on Aging welcomed a panel from the new Geriatric Emergency Department (GED) collaborative in San Francisco, as they outlined how they are currently improving geriatric care within their respective emergency departments, especially for those with dementia/cognitive impairment.  A recording of this presentation can be found on IOA’s YouTube Channel, here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eCxOcZ_SBq8 


This month, we welcome back members of the Kaiser SF GED team, as they unveil their new GED Advisory Council and explain how such a council can drive improvement of care within the ER setting. The Kaiser team will outline the overall duties, expectations, and time commitment of a role within an Advisory Council—and explain how to refer someone to participation in the Council. The Council is open to KP members aged 65 and older and their caregivers, with best-fit Council candidates being early-stage dementia clients and family caregivers.


  • Explain at least three ways in which a patient-advisory council can influence and drive improvement of care within an ER setting
  • Identify a best-fit ER Kaiser Advisory Council candidate, based on at least 3 requirements.
