Portal of Online Geriatric Education (POGOe)

POGOe is a free public repository of a growing collection of geriatric educational materials in various e-learning formats, including lectures, exercises, virtual patients, case-based discussions, simulations, as well as links to other resources.

POGOe's mission is to promote geriatric education through the provision and encouragement of the free exchange of teaching and assessment materials that support the fields of geriatrics and gerontology.

POGOe was created in 2004, is funded by the Donald W. Reynolds Foundation, and managed by Mount Sinai School of Medicine, Department of Geriatrics and Adult Development, on behalf of the Association of Directors of Geriatric Academic Programs (ADGAP).  The site is a partnership between Mount Sinai and Vanderbilt University School of Medicine, Departments of Biomedical Informatics and Division of Geria

The Product Library contains over 500 training materials. An RSS feed for newly added products is available.

The POGOe Resources section provides links to useful external documents and websites.

POSTED, the site's newsletter, highlights new developments, tools and resources on the site; features a high-quality geriatrics website, and announces conferences and collaborations.

The site also features an "Ask the informationist" Q & A, where practitioners can submit a clinical question which will be answered by an expert in both geriatric medicine and library science.

Anyone can use POGOe and its resources at no charge, however user registration is required.
