This is a clinical bedside approach to treating the patient with multiple aches and pains based on the target of inflammation in the joint and the distribution of affected joints. Using this approach, we can sort out non-inflammatory arthritis as represented by osteoarthritis from inflammatory synovitis (rheumatoid arthritis), inflammatory enthesitis (ankylosing spondylitis, psoriatic arthritis), and non-inflammatory rheumatic conditions like fibromyalgia. The use of X-rays, ultrasound, and MRI, and common laboratory studies like ESR, CRP, rheumatoid factor, anti-CCP, and ANA will be discussed.

Our patients are aging before our very eyes. A 72-year-old patient who used to come bounding down the hallway, is now, fifteen years later, using a walker and taking ten minutes to enter the exam room. We are facing questions from concerned adult children about whether their parents -- your patients -- are safe living, driving, or managing finances alone. Participants will review the factors that impact aging-in-place, learn about office-based tests evaluating a senior’s independence, receive information regarding available support resources, and gain insights on navigating transitions to long-term communities. The lecture will also discuss the options in long-term care living and innovative alternatives in the long-term care field.

The speaker will discuss contemporary issues related to addressing vaccine delivery including 1) understanding the science of vaccines and vaccine safety and effectiveness, 2) reviewing the latest vaccine recommendations, and 3) learning simple, yet effective and time-efficient strategies to overcome vaccine hesitancy in the office.

Providers are under increasing pressure to ensure safe and effective prescribing of chronic opiates in light of the opiate epidemic.

This talk will review the signs and symptoms of withdrawal, who is at risk of withdrawal and medications providers can use to minimize withdrawal symptoms. Participants will also walk away with practical rules and guidelines on how to wean patients off chronic opiates or taper to a lower dose. Finally, the talk will review options for transitioning patients to addiction treatment. Participants will get to practice what they learn through several interactive cases.
