As residents strive to improve their fund of knowledge in regards to care of the elderly, it becomes necessary to incorporate efficient, point of care instruments to educate and reinforce quality evaluations in regards to geriatric syndromes. In the often complex patient, a quick, ready reference is desired to assure comprehensive evaluation. This project incorporates basic science education, and utilization of "fast facts" of information to optimize care of the elderly.
