Overview

This program is designed to increase attendee knowledge and competence in a variety of primary care topics. These include hypertension, lipid management, common skin problems, ethical dilemmas, and current diabetes management. All topics presented will utilize evidence-based guidelines from the literature. These are Primary Care CME courses for Physicians, Nurse Practitioners, and Physician Assistants. Medical residents/fellows as well as students from all disciplines are welcome to attend.

Statement of Need
Common primary care issues are being updated continually by specialty and government agencies. It is difficult for the primary care physician to stay abreast of all the current new guidelines and re commendations. Physicians and other medical providers are in need of streamlined approaches to common primary care issues.

Goal
The overall goals of the conference are to impact the diagnostic and treatment of patients seen in primary care practices.
