Age-related macular degeneration (ARMD) affects roughly 11 million people in the US and is the leading cause of visual impairment for older individuals. Its severe and rapid impact on vision requires vigilant prevention and screening practices, as well as a thorough understanding of diagnostic procedures and the optimal use of current and emerging therapies. This activity will provide an overview of the multiple subtypes of ARMD, including dry, intermediate, and wet ARMD, and geographic atrophy. It will explore existing and emerging therapies for ARMD subtypes, as well as their efficacy and safety profiles. In addition, testing strategies that can help determine the direction of ARMD management plans, as well as applications and programs for low-vision care, will be identified.

Geriatric syndromes are multifactorial conditions that are common in older adults. These syndromes can be present in residents of nursing homes that provide long-term care. However, geriatric syndromes are often not well understood, though the term is commonly used in daily practice in skilled nursing and assisted living facilities. An awareness of these common syndromes can help staff better understand the care needs of residents and improve quality of care and outcomes. This activity will identify the basic elements of several of the most common syndromes, offer insight into how geriatric syndromes can impact a resident’s daily life and provide a better appreciation of how an individual’s organ systems are interconnected to help mitigate risk and enable development of a better care plan for optimal outcomes.
