The Rush University Medical Center and the ABA Commission on Law and Aging have released an interactive educational curriculum on assessing the capacity of older adults, funded by The Retirement Research Foundation.  The course is aimed at physicians but is valuable and useful as well for other health care clinicians and students.

The curriculum features six modules – the importance of evaluating patients’ capacities; key principles and practices; the evaluation process and content; specific capacities and situation; when to conduct an evaluation yourself and when to refer, and working with courts in guardianship proceedings.  The curriculum also includes videos, a pocket reference card, a glossary, and a resource list, and is downloadable.

The course will be open starting March 18, 2013. For more information, contact Michelle Hochwert at 312-942-0417 or at See
