*Observacións de avaliación:
A cualificación final da materia farase de acordo aos seguintes criterios:
1) Avaliación final, realizada de acordo ao calendario oficial de exames, mediante exame que contribuirá ao 40% da cualificación final. Dita avaliación consistirá nun exame tipo test, que constará de corenta preguntas con catro respostas cada unha das cales unicamente unha será correcta. As preguntas mal contestadas restarán 0,33 puntos sobre as correctas, non restando as non contestadas. Para superar o exame o alumno deberá obter unha puntuación final do 50% do total unha vez restados os puntos das falladas. Ex.; 30 ben, 4 mal e 6 non contestadas. A puntuación final será 30-(4*0,33)=28,68>20 (Superado).
2) O resto das actividades computarán o 60% da cualificación final do seguinte xeito:
2.1.) Asistencia a Docencia Expositiva e Docencia Interactiva (ata o 20%). Neste caso, o/a alumno/a deberá asistir polo menos ao 75% da docencia presencial.
2.2.) Visita a un Centro Sociosanitario ou recensión sobre un artigo subido á plataforma Moodle (ata un 5%). O/a alumno/a deberá entregar unha memoria sobre a actividade realizada.
2.3.) Estudo de casos e Traballo Tutelado (ata o 35%). Inclúe revisión bibliográfica sobre o tema obxecto de estudo, así como desenvolvemento dun caso clínico de acordo ás competencias adquiridas na docencia interactiva.
O alumno poderá obter positivos por participación en actividades organizadas ou recomendadas polos profesores da materia (sesións científicas, congresos, proxectos de investigación...). A puntuación outorgada será a criterio do profesor responsable.
Para superar a materia haberá que superar cada unha das partes sometidas a avaliación. de tal xeito que aínda que a un alumno a suma das actividades realizadas máis a cualificación do exame superen o 5, a súa puntuación, caso de non superar algunha das partes será a referida á parte con máis cualificación das suspendidas. O sistema de cualificacións expresarase mediante cualificación numérica de acordo co establecido no art. 5 do Real Decreto 1125/2003 de 5 de setembro (BOE 18 de setembro), polo que se establece o sistema europeo de créditos e o sistema de cualificacións nas titulacións universitarias de carácter oficial e validez en todo o territorio nacional Sistema de cualificacións: 0-4,9=Suspenso 5-6,9=Aprobado 7-8,9=Notable 9-10=Sobresaliente 9-10 Matrícula de Honra (Graciable.
IMPORTANTE TRABALLOS TUTELADOS: - Caso de detectar fraude, copia ou plaxio na redacción do traballo da materia, implicará un suspenso na oportunidade de avaliación afectada (0,0) e remisión directa á oportunidade seguinte. - Dita actitude comunicarase á Comisión Académica e ao resto de profesores do título. - No caso de que se reitere a irregularidade nunha 2ª avaliación, a Comisión poderá solicitar ao Reitor a expulsión temporal ou perpetua do alumno do Grao cursado.


5. Modificacións da bibliografía ou webgrafía
A bibliografía establecida, engadese material complementario na plataforma Moodle, tanto en formato artigo científico como a vídeos.

Methodologies
Methodologies Description
Guest lecture / keynote speech The Masterclass is also known as "lecture", "Expository method" or "Master lesson". This last modality is usually reserved to a special type of lesson taught by a professor on special occasions, with a content that implies an original elaboration and based on the almost exclusive use of the word as a route of transmission of the information to the Audience.

It allows acquiring the specific competencies referenced in this subject.
Case study Methodology where the subject faces the description of a specific situation that poses a problem that must be understood, valued and solved by a group of people, through a process of discussion. The student is faced with a specific problem (case), which describes a real situation of the professional life, and should be able to analyze a series of facts, referring to a particular field of knowledge or action, to arrive at a reasoned decision through a discussion in small working groups. In this context, the student will acquire the necessary skill to carry out the evaluation of the geriatric patient with the main used instruments.

It allows to acquire the specific competencies referenced in this subject.
Supervised projects Methodology designed to promote the autonomous learning of the students, under the supervision of the teacher and in varied scenarios (academic and professional). It is referred primarily to the learning of "How to". It is an option based on the assumption of students responsibility for their own learning.
This teaching system is based on two basic elements: The independent learning of the students and the follow-up of that learning by the teacher-tutor.

It allows acquiring the generic competencies referenced in this subject.
Field trip Activities developed in an external context to the University academic environment (companies, institutions, organizations, monuments, etc.) related to the field of study of the subject. These activities focus on the development of capacities related to direct and systematic observation, the collection of information, the development of products (sketches, designs, etc.), etc. This activity will be carried out in small groups in a center of attention to elderly people.

It allows acquiring generic competencies referenced in this subject.
Multiple-choice questions It will consist of a test-type examination, consisting of 40 questions with four answers each of which only one is correct. Incorrect-answered questions will subtract 0.33 points on the correct ones, not subtracting the unanswered. To overcome the exam the student must obtain a final score of 65% of the total once the points of the missed ones have been subtracted. e.g 30 right, 4 wrong and 6 unanswered. The final score will be 30-4 * 0,33 = 28,68 > 26. Following the table of equivalences the score of the test will be as follows:
Correct 1-5 6-10 11-15 16-20 21-26 27-30 31-35 36-40
Note 0.2-1.0 1.2-1.9 2.1-2.9 3.1-3.8 4-5 5.4-6.4 6.8-8.2 8.6-10
Thus in the section of 1 to 26 correct answers, each correct answer computes 0.19 points and in the section of 27 to 40 correct answers, each one computes 0.36 points.
Subsequently, the test note is weighted at 65% of the total score for the subject. Therefore, if a 10 in the exam involves a 6.5 in the final evaluation, a 7.2 examination note would imply 4.7 points.

Assessment comments

The final
qualification will be computed according to the following criteria: 1) Final
evaluation, carried out according to the official examination calendar, by
means of an exam that contributes to 65% of the final qualification. This
evaluation will consist of a test-type exam, consisting of forty questions with
four answers, with only one correct. Incorrect answers will subtract 0.33
points on the correct ones, not subtracting the unanswered. To pass the exam
the student must obtain a final score of 65% of the total (once the points of
the missed ones have been subtracted). e.g 30 right, 4 wrong and 6 unanswered.
The final score will be 30-4 * 0,33 = 28,68 > 26 (pass). Being the table of
equivalences once obtained the final score the following: 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10

9.6 40 10. In the section of 1 to 26 correct answers, each correct answer
computes 0.19 points, and in the section of 27 to 40 correct answers, each one
computes 0.36 points. 2) The rest of the activities compute 35% of the final qualification
as follows: 2.1.) Assistance to expository teaching and interactive teaching
(up to 7%). In this case, the student must attend at least 75% of the classroom

interactive teaching. The student will be able to obtain positives by
participation in activities organized or recommended by the professors of the
subject (Scientific sessions, conferences, research projects...). The score
given will be at the discretion of the teacher responsible. To overcome the
subject, the student will have to pass each of the parties submitted to
evaluation. Although the sum of the activities carried out and the
qualification of the exam exceeds 5, in case of not having passed any of the
