Genitourinary and Renal Disorders in Older Individuals
We have based the selection of topics for our program on the list of medical conditions published in the Candidate Handbook of the Commission for Certification in Geriatric Pharmacy Disease State List (http://www.ccgp.org/sites/default/files/CCGP_ContentOutline2014.pdf). Completion of all of our lessons will provide a strong foundation for preparation to challenge the CGP exam.
However, you should also visit the CCGP "Candidate Page” at http://www.ccgp.org/candidate to download the candidate handbook and review all of the details and requirements of the exam. The page also tells you how to register for the exam when you are ready.
Aging is associated with many significant changes that affect genitourinary function and contribute to declining renal function. Renal function changes are particularly relevant to pharmacists as they necessitate careful dosing of many medications and avoidance of others. This five-module program will review acute and chronic kidney disease, benign prostatic hyperplasia, sexual dysfunction, urinary incontinence and urinary retention in older individuals.
