COURSE INFORMATION

Course Description

Multiple topics chosen based upon our Annual Needs Assessment Survey, physician identified practice gaps, and recommendations of key option leaders will be presented to address the individual physician gaps in knowledge, skills and attitudes within the physician practice environment.  Our course seeks to update physicians on the latest recommendations involving medical sub-specialty topics commonly seen within the primary care physician’s practice and will be of general interest to our attendees.

Course Topics

Based on your responses to our recent ATSU CME Needs Assessment Survey, experts will be presenting the latest up-to-date information on these topics:

  • Orthopedics
  • Pain Management
  • Sepsis in the Hospital-setting
  • Recognizing and Treating PTSD
  • Clinical Emergencies
  • Rheumatology
  • HPV
  • Dermatology
  • Obesity

Educational Objectives

  • Discuss current diagnostic and therapeutic options for common conditions seen within the primary care setting
  • Analyze new updated evidence-based clinical treatment options for these commonly seen conditions and diseases
  • Improve your ability to diagnose and manage patients who have these conditions and diseases and incorporate evidence-based changes into you practice

Target Audience

The target audience includes primary care physicians, family practice physicians, internal medicine, and other healthcare learners who treat patients within the primary care setting.

Educational Need

Primary Care providers provide most of the evidence-based disease prevention and screening within the current healthcare system. There remains a gap between the recommended preventive services and actual practice as well as patient adherence to prescribed treatment. Currently, most chronic illness care takes place in primary care practices which provides some disadvantages and serious limitations.

Of the 133 million patients with chronic diseases, 47% have more than one diagnosis. On average, PCP’s manage 3.05 problems per visit and the number of problems grown to 3.88 for people over the age of 65. A PCP hands multiple diseases and complications within in a single office visit.

This CME activity will provide evidence-based information on some of the most currently seen chronic conditions within the primary care setting. The PCP is faced with insufficient time to keep up with updated standards of care, government regulations and other treatment updates. Therefore, gaps in knowledge and competence exist.

Professional Practice Gap

Primary care physicians (PCPs) provide most of the evidence-based disease prevention and screening within the current healthcare system. There remains a gap between the recommended preventive services and actual practice. Currently, most chronic illness care takes place in primary care practices, which provides some disadvantages and serious limitations.

Often PCPs lack the up-to-date skills, the time to keep up-to-date and the ability and strategies to address patients with chronic seen conditions within their practice. With 47% presenting with multiple disease states, conditions can be difficult to diagnose, treat and the practitioner is faced with patients who are non-compliant. Strategies will show them how to properly diagnose and treat multiple illnesses.

Desired Outcomes

Learners require more up-to-date evidence-based information and better strategies to treat chronic conditions and diseases. This activity was designed to improve both knowledge through education and competence by now having the ability to apply that knowledge and skills in practice to help you implement better clinical decision-making strategies.
