Program                  Overview             In 2000, AB 1820 was signed into California law. This bill requires general
internists and family physicians whose patient population consists of 25%
or more patients at least 65 years of age to complete at least 20% of their
mandatory CME, or 10 CME hours for every two years of CME reporting,
in the field of geriatric medicine.

In response to AB 1820 and to ensure physician members are continually
receiving the most updated information and training in geriatric care,
CAMASC has conducted an educational needs survey among its physician
members, and through gap analysis research, identified the following
four (4) topics to be addressed:
  • Dementia For The Primary Care Physician
  • What's Wrong With These Eyelids
  • Drug Prescribing For Older Adults 
  • Substance Abuse Among Adult: A Growing Problem


The purpose of this activity is to narrow the existing practice gaps by
addressing cultural, ethnic, and age-specific health disparities and
new scientific knowledge to improve patient care.  A variety of
teaching and evaluation methods have been developed to facilitate
learning and professional development.  At the end of the seminar,
participants will be able to discuss differential diagnoses, describe
possible complications and list preventive measures, implement
educational, preventive, and therapeutic interventions, and improve
cultural and linguistic competence in communication in their treatment
of the elderly. This activity is expected to result in increased
knowledge, gained competence and better performance in making an
appropriate diagnosis, providing effective treatment and referral
or follow-up care, with the overall goal of improving patient care
for elderly patients.  

Target Audience The target audience for this activity will be physicians and physician
assistants whose patient population consists of 25% or more patients
at least 65 years of age and those who provide health care to or
are interested in the health care of the Chinese/Asian American community.
