Concise and clinically actionable topics for health care professionals in all disciplines and specialties.

Geriatrics Fast Facts (GFFs)

GFFs were launched in 2015 and inspired by Palliative Fast Facts to address the health care needs of the older adult. Dr. Kathryn Denson, Interim Chief, Division of Geriatric and Palliative Medicine at the Medical College of Wisconsin is the Editor in Chief. Topics have been derived from Geriatric Education Team (GET) collaborations in Cardiology, General Internal Medicine, Hematology and Oncology, Nephrology and Pulmonary and Critical Care; as well as, through the Geriatrics Consortium between the Medical College of Wisconsin, UW-Madison, Marquette University, and Advocate Aurora.
