STATEMENT OF NEED
Medical innovation (rapid scientific and technological advances and applied clinic data) force the bedside caregiver to master copious amounts of information.  Further, this information (new skills, new technology, new technique, etc.) must be translated into practice protocol to effectively care for patients. 
For the general practitioner, the amount of new knowledge needed for best care can be daunting.  This conference will compile data, research evidence of best care and relate proven strategies for implementation.
For the specialist, the conference will enhance knowledge base and core competence.

 

EXPECTED OUTCOME
Physicians and members of the multidisciplinary team will walk away with specific strategies to implement the latest data driven advances into practice.  The goal is to advance clinical competence, thereby, improving patient experience and outcomes.

 

EDUCATIONAL OBJECTIVES
After attending the meeting, participants should be able to:

·          Better manage commonly encountered chronic medical problems such as hyperlipidemia, diabetes, osteoporosis, obstructive lung disease, gout, and headaches, as well as acute conditions such as skin and soft tissue infections, diarrhea, and musculoskeletal injuries;

·          Align practice patterns with current evidence and guidelines related to atrial fibrillation, coronary artery disease, chronic kidney disease, anticoagulation management, contraception, and preoperative medical evaluation;

·          Manage common problems traditionally treated by specialists, such as heart failure, Hepatitis B & C infections, end-of-life care, rheumatoid arthritis, as well as recognize the indications for referral to a subspecialist.

The implementation of discussed proven interventions will result in value-based, effective, quality patient care.
