Event Overview
Welcome message:

Presented by Continuing Education Company (CEC); for the past 25 years our Primary Care CME Conference Series is designed to update primary care clinicians in rapidly changing therapeutic areas. This year, CEC is pleased to host the “2nd Annual Emergency and Urgent Care Medicine for the Primary Care Provider” to be held in San Diego at The Westin San Diego October 27-29, 2017.

Emergency and Urgent Care medicine involves the delivery of immediate medical care for the treatment of acute and chronic illness and injury. Practitioners providing emergency and urgent care need to be proficient in evaluating and caring for patients presenting with a broad range of acute medical problems. As a result, urgent care medicine requires clinicians to have an extensive scope of knowledge and expertise in the evaluation and treatment of acute medical conditions in all age groups.

This conference will focus on timely and practical issues involving emergency and urgent care medicine. Sessions will provide the latest evidence-based information on the evaluation and treatment of acute emergency conditions. Each session will provide best practices for use in an outpatient clinical setting.


Program Objectives

As a result of this conference, participants will be able to:

Discuss the clinical presentation of the acute disorders seen in the primary care setting.

Identify the role of the primary care clinician in the management of these problems.

Utilize current advances in the diagnosis and treatment of these problems, using whenever possible, an evidence-based approach.

Delineate which patients require immediate hospitalization and additional care and those that can be successfully managed as outpatients.

Interact and question nationally acclaimed speakers on a variety of clinical scenarios from medical practice.


Target Audience

This CME conference is designed to educate primary care physicians, nurse practitioners, and physician assistants.
