Course Description:

Join the Senior Specialist Educational staff on your pathway to Senior Specialist 2.  Come prepared with a topic of your choice to share with your peers to develop and test your material. This is the first step in the Senior Specialist 2 Process. Members must complete this and register and submit the final project to obtain their Senior Specialist 2 designation.


This is a deep dive into a topic that you have researched and started to develop material related to the Senior Model.  Topics could include common chronic conditions, approaches to teaching seniors, or other topics related to CAP or VAK.

This one-day event is an educational opportunity to dive into numerous topics and work with your peers to complete your Senior Specialist 2 presentation.  You are encouraged to develop your topic with research materials and answer the Who/What/When/Why/How questions; however, you are not presenting the "final version" of your presentation. 


You will have a willing group to be your test peers and provide feedback to complete your topic presentation.  


Upon completing this educational event, you will have two years to submit your final presentation for approval and, at that time, be promoted to Senior Specialist 2.


Example:  31% of seniors have a form of Arthritis, either osteoarthritis or Rheumatoid Arthritis.  Develop a presentation on this condition and how to modify your lesson content to teach a senior who still enjoys sliding and wants to continue learning new skills.  Specifically, they want to learn how to slide through bumps to keep up with their grandkids.
