The GENI (Geriatric Emergency Nurse Initiative) was launched in 2005 with funding from the Ministry of Health. Realizing that many elderly enter the hospital system from the emergency department and that overlooking the special needs and conditions of the elderly under stress is a major cause of compounded problems in their care, the Government of BC created the GENI program.
The GENI has helped by contributing:
- workshops and self-training materials
- links to educational resources
- video series
- Geriatric Emergency Network Initiative – online learning course >> From this link, select the GENI course from the course list and ‘Register’ as a new user.

GENI and the ACGNN have very similar purposes, so the articles and content on this site support both.
