Geriatrics Screening: the Good, the Bad, and the Questionable

As people get older, it is challenging to determine what screening tests make a difference in their lives and are truly necessary. Providers are inundated with sweeping quality improvement strategies that often do not reflect the needs of older adult patients. Learn from an expert geriatrician, through a red-yellow-green light approach, on which tests are good, questionable, and bad.
