Do you share GeriMedRisk rounds presentation slides or archive presentation recordings?
We do not share presentation slides or archive presentation recordings. Our presenters are renowned and offer their expertise at no cost. We also believe in ensuring that our education and resources are current, scientifically based and reflective of best practices. Due to the risk of material from our rounds presentations being altered or incorrectly interpreted, we are unable to attach or forward the presentation slide deck. With presenter permission, we host an evening replay session of the recorded rounds presentation. If a replay is being offered, it will be posted on this page.
