At the conclusion of this conference the participants will be able to:

  • Describe the latest medical controversies in primary care that have arisen because of new advances in disease processes and patient outcome data
  • Identify such problems in their practice and work settings
  • Choose and provide appropriate treatment for such issues
Event Overview
Welcome message:

The generalist is faced with mastering an ever increasing amount of knowledge to effectively care for patients. These clinicians must keep abreast of the most up to date evidence for a large number of disease states, and in particular, struggle with controversial internal medicine issues. These controversies are frequently the result of trying to reconcile the evidence of disease process outcomes versus patient care outcomes. This is compounded by the difficulty interpreting information presented by industry, which frequently overstates the disease process outcome when the patient care outcome does not support that evidence.
The intent of this course is to improve the clinical competence of the participating clinicians by providing a format for adult learning that includes brief lectures, case-based small group workshops, interactive question and answer sessions as well as time for personal expert faculty consultations. It also provides a week long forum for generalists to learn from their peers in a course that fosters collaborative sharing of patient care issues especially with respect to active and evolving controversies.
