COURSE INFORMATION

PROGRAM BROCHURE AND PROGRAM SCHEDULE COMING SOON!

Course Description
This intensive course will provide you with comprehensive, up-to-date, evidence-based therapeutic concepts that you will be able to implement into your daily practice. This activity is designed to improve competence in the diagnosis and treatment of Primary Care issues in the out-patient setting. It will provide practitioners with evidence-based methods and strategies to assist in providing better management and treatment options for patients.

Educational Objectives

  • Identify current therapeutic options for many medical disorders commonly seen in practice
  • Utilize current clinical guidelines in the diagnosis and management of commonly encountered therapeutic issues
  • Formulate comprehensive evidence-based interventions and treatment strategies that will lead to the reduction of modifiable risk factors and improved long term outcomes
  • Summarize recent advances in office-based internal medicine based on case discussions
  • Become a better health advocate with a deeper understanding of health disparities and the central role of the primary care clinicians in providing equitable, patient-centered care
  • Implement new guidelines in office-based preventive medicine, including new strategies for commonly seen conditions

Target Audience
The target audience includes family medicine physicians, internists, and other primary healthcare providers which are interested in providing high quality Primary Care

Professional Practice Gap
The practicing physician is faced with mastering an ever-increasing amount of knowledge to effectively care for patients and often lacks confidence, knowledge or tools to confidently assess, diagnose, treat and manage patients with comorbidities. This conference will provide an update about standards of care in order to reflect the most current evidence-based knowledge and guidelines to improve primary care physician’s competence in managing complex cases where physicians will choose effective treatment plans to improve patient outcomes.

Educational Need
Patients with multi-morbidity (two or more chronic conditions) are now the norm in clinical practice, and place an increasing burden on the healthcare system. Management of these patients is challenging, and requires doctors who are skilled in the complexity of multiple chronic diseases. Most patients who see family medical practitioners have more than one co-morbidity and chronic disease.

Desired Outcomes
This course is designed to provide interactive educational activities that discuss complicated case scenarios that have been shown to improve participant application of evidence-based medicine for patients with multiple chronic comorbidities. By providing a format for adult learning that includes lectures, case-based studies, interactive question and answer sessions and collaborative sharing of patient care issues has been shown to improve participate knowledge and competency.

Accreditation Statement
ATSU is accredited by the American Osteopathic Association (AOA) to provide osteopathic continuing medical education for physicians.
