Online Learning

Purpose

The Finger Lakes Geriatric Education Center (FLGEC) hosts FREE, self-paced, education relating to the care of older adults. These courses were designed for both health care professionals and family caregivers and can be accessed through the CollaborNation learning management system.

The FLGEC is excited to announce that 13 of the 14 FREE online learning modules have been certified for CME and New York State Social Work continuing education credits.  In order to access these self-paced modules, a free account must be created.  During creation of your profile, essential data is captured to ensure correct reporting of participation, as well as to HRSA, the funder of the FLGEC.  Continuing education credits will be reported quarterly.

If you have already taken modules on this site, please be sure to add your NYS SW license number to your profile or it will not populate on your certificate upon completion of each module.
