Coronavirus Update

Pri-Med is postponing Pri-Med Southwestoriginally scheduled for WednesdayFridayJune 1012, 2020. We are currently working closely with the venue to identify new potential dates and will update you as soon as possible.

Due to the magnitude of the unanticipated public health and safety issues posed by the rapidly escalating COVID-19 outbreaks and contagion, it would be an unacceptable risk to our community of supporters and healthcare professionals to bring thousands of people together.

The health, safety, and well-being of our community, exhibitors, faculty, and staff are our top priority. With an ever-increasing number of primary care professionals on the frontlines of preparing and reacting to the COVID-19 outbreak, postponement of Pri-Med Southwest became unavoidable. We hope that rescheduling will ensure that our community is able to do what they do best—help and heal.

Our postponement decision was also driven by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) announcement that mass gatherings should be postponed or cancelled across the country. Follow this link for the latest CDC COVID-19 update on Mass Gatherings: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/community/large-events/mass-gatherings-ready-for-covid-19.html

In the coming weeks and months, Pri-Med will continue to monitor the situation closely and consult with our Clinical Advisory Board, the global teams of our parent company, and healthcare organizations including the CDC for any new or heightened risks. We will continue to apply evidence-based decision-making to ensure the continued safety of the healthcare community planning to assemble later in 2020.

Virtual Visit: Shared-Decision Making for Patient with T2DM and CV Risk

Wednesday−Thursday, June 10−11 | 9am–5pm

Clinicians who treat patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) can spend approximately 20 minutes on either Wednesday, June 10, or Thursday, June 11, practicing their clinician-patient communication and shared decision-making (SDM) skills in a virtual one-on-one encounter with a standardized patient.

You will review a detailed scenario of a patient with T2DM and cardiovascular risk before beginning the session. Then, you will be asked to discuss next steps with the standardized patient with an emphasis on using shared decision-making. The interaction will take place through a video conferencing platform.

This teaching method provides a safe, controlled setting with a trained, real-life person to help you master your shared decision-making skills and increase confidence in communicating with patients about management of their T2DM.

Attend the live session, The Heart of the Matter: Primary and Secondary Prevention of Cardiovascular Disease in T2DM, at 1:45−2:45pm on Wednesday, June 10, to learn more about this topic!

Learning Objective:

  • Apply a shared decision-making model to select antihyperglycemic agents based on an individual patient’s CV risk, comorbidities, and preferences
