CLINICAL ACTIVITIES SUMMARY
Dr. Victoria Tang is an Assistant Professor in the Division of Geriatrics, Department of Medicine. Victoria is active in several clinical settings. Victoria sees patients in her role as a geriatrician in the UCSF Surgery Wellness Program, a multidisciplinary pre-operative program for older adults undergoing high risk surgery. She cares for veterans as a hospitalist in the VA hospital setting and also oversees geriatric medicine fellows? primary care panels in the VA outpatient Geriatrics Clinic.
Victoria teaches fellows, residents, and health professional students in a number of settings at UCSF in topics related to my clinical and research expertise. In clinical settings including the VA Geriatrics Clinic, Victoria teaches trainees about the clinical management of frail, older adults. She also teaches medical students, nurse practitioner students, and residents in the Surgery Wellness Program on a number of topics, including delirium risk assessment in frail, older adults and advance care planning. In the VA Acute Care for Elders unit, Victoria leads a discussion with medical students, residents, and geriatric fellows in various topics pertaining to the evidence for specialized care models for older adults in the acute care setting and specific inpatient care needs of the older adult.
RESEARCH AND CREATIVE ACTIVITIES SUMMARY
Victoria's research focuses on improving the surgical care of older adults. She is currently pursuing several projects that span different aspects of this topic. Victoria is currently studying the long term post-operative outcomes of frail, older adults who underwent the Surgery Wellness Program. In addition, she is extending her previous work in improving advanced directive documentation in the electronic health record, with a recently proposed grant that will improve the understanding of older adult engagement in advance care planning prior to major surgery. On the national level, she is actively engaged in translating research findings into interventions and policies to address the health and social needs of older adults in the surgical setting. As a core team member of the American College of Surgeons? Coalition for Quality in Geriatric Surgery Project, Victoria is involved in establishing quality geriatric surgical care standards, quality metrics, and implementation methods for hospital systems throughout the nation.
