Delivering a wealth of multimedia educational tools, this valuable self-study resource offers a variety of interactive lessons that provide immediate feedback to the learner.

The iGPSAP is an essential learning tool and teaching guide for all health care professionals who work with older adults, including psychiatrists, neurologists, primary care physicians, geriatricians, advance practice nurses, psychologists and social workers.
