Hot Topics within the Primary Care Practice

Course Description

This important CME course Hot Topics within the Primary Care Practice will educate and promote improved patient outcomes in a broad range of therapeutic areas commonly encountered in the busy primary care practice. In addition to an overview of the history, current science of a variety of specialty areas and new important medical advances, most content will be presented in a very practical, patient-focused manner relevant to the specific primary care setting and challenges.  Primary care providers will be able to apply the most current treatment strategies provided in recent clinical guideline updates, recognize the most effective interventions leading to reduction in modifiable risk factors, and employ practice relevant new research in their everyday patient encounters. In addition, because primary care physicians are most often the first medical provider contacted by a patient, the daily clinical challenges require a distinct approach and special skills in eliciting concerns, focusing key issues, negotiating plans, and helping solve problems.

Target Audience: primary care physicians, family practice physicians, internal medicine, and other healthcare learners who treat patients within the primary care setting

Educational Objectives
  • Develop comprehensive treatment programs for commonly encountered therapeutic areas seen within the primary care setting
  • Analyze current preventative health care strategies and determine when to refer to a  specialist
  • Identify overlapping or related conditions and effectively discuss personal responsibilities in prevention and treatment with patients
