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, and risk management issues in primary care, plus hot-off-the-press emerging topics will be addressed to ensure you are up to date with the latest information during the ongoing COVID pandemic. We will address:

Outpatient treatment of COVID-19 and management of COVID long-haulers
Vaccine angst
Racial inequalities in 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
Preventative therapies for migraine
Evolving vaccine recommendations, including COVID-19
Lifestyle changes to prevent type 2 diabetes, cardiac disease, hypertension and hyperlipidemia
Strategies for smoking cessation
Recommendations for preventing dementia and osteoporosis
Reducing medical errors
Menopause and hormone replacement therapy

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.

Clinicians seeking a useful and comprehensive review that ensures they are up-to-date across all major fields in preventive medicine. This includes:

Family medicine physicians
Medical specialists
Nurses and nurse practitioners
Physician assistants
Other providers who care for patients in primary care practice settings
Patients and members of the lay community who wish to learn more about how they can reduce their risk for serious illness and maintain wellness.
