A major challenge we face today as primary care clinicians is staying current with the rapid advances in prevention. Prevention is a major component of effective primary care practice and one of the unique strengths that we must possess. Most existing CME courses focus on prevention in one or several limited spheres. In this course, we will focus on screening and prevention and teach you innovative and novel strategies across multiple disciplines. Sessions include prevention of cancer, heart disease, infectious diseases, obesity, diabetes, timely updates on COVID-19 prevention, treatment and management; risk management issues in primary care; and a number of inspiring keynotes. All sessions will provide you with practical information that you can use now to provide exceptional patient care. We will address:

Evolving vaccine recommendations, including COVID-19
Outpatient treatment of COVID-19 and management of long-haulers
Common outpatient infections and travel medicine
Genetic causes of cancer: which patients should be screened
Patient management in the face of alcohol or opioid use
Screening and treatment of depression
Nutrition counseling and healthy-lifestyle coaching to prevent chronic illnesses
Pharmacological management of obesity
Preventative therapies for migraine
Lifestyle changes to prevent type 2 diabetes, cardiac disease, hypertension and hyperlipidemia
Strategies for managing menopause
Recommendations for preventing dementia and osteoporosis
Reducing medical errors
Screening, prevention and treatment options for Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA)

Our outstanding faculty, recognized as experts in the field, will teach you how to incorporate the latest tests and tools into your practice. We will discuss challenging cases and treatments and give you ample opportunity to ask questions and interact with leading experts through live-moderated Q and A sessions and the integrated Q and A chat tools. Participants will also receive access to the videos on-demand for future review. You can expect to receive an exceptional update to your existing skills through this clinically relevant course.
