Welcome to Frontier Geriatrics, the website for the Comprehensive Geriatric Education Program (CGEP). This website originated as part of an innovative 3-year HRSA project designed to provide peer support to registered nurses and others providing care in rural and frontier communities of Montana and the surrounding region. The goal of CGEP is to improve the quality and years of healthy life of the elderly living in our rural communities. We believe that strengthening geriatric nursing knowledge, skills and abilities of local caregivers enhances access to high quality geriatric care and the ability of all older adults to 'age in place'.
Coming Spring 2015
CGEP's Biennial Geriatric Nursing Conference
