BWH Division of Aging hosts first Medical Grand Rounds

The Rx Foundation has partnered with the Division of Aging at Brigham and Women’s Hospital since 2010 to strengthen care for older adult patients throughout the hospital. This has included adding clinicians with geriatric specialization, and developing co-management approaches for older adult patients receiving care in oncology, orthopedics, and other departments. In September, the Division of Aging hosted their first ever Medical Grand Rounds, with Dr. Kenneth Rockwood of Dalhousie University. Dr. Rockwood is a distinguished expert on the clinical and epidemiological aspects of frailty, dementia, and delirium. The Division of Aging team continues to increase the visibility of, and appreciation for, the value of geriatrics in raising the quality of care for older adults.
