These documents are produced as a teaching aid. The Victorian Geriatric Medicine Training Program cannot guarantee that errors do not exist, or that there has not been a change in practice since the module was written. The clinician is therefore advised to independently verify the accuracy and appropriateness of the information provided. The Victorian Geriatric Medicine Training Program assumes no responsibility for any injury or damage resulting from the use of these modules.
