This lecture will update the primary care provider (PCP) on current treatments for diabetic retinopathy, hypertension-related eye conditions, and glaucoma. These three entities are common conditions seen in many of our patients, and a better understanding of the current treatment patterns will improve communication between primary care and ophthalmology. Increasing the specialty knowledge base of the PCPs allows for better co-management and patient education of disease process, management options, and prognosis.

Public and even healthcare professionals commonly misunderstand Palliative Care as Hospice Care. Primary Care Providers (PCP) are the frontline professionals caring for the patients who are chronically ill with declining trajectory as their diseases become incurable and progressive. It is very important that PCPs recognize palliative care needs of these patients and their families as well as to address those “basic” needs such as pain and symptoms management, discussion of goals of care and advance care planning in timely and effectively at point of care. It is also important to identify those whom may benefit from expertise by palliative specialists and to make appropriate and timely referral. The talk focuses on basic knowledge of palliative care and skills such as management of common symptoms and communication skills essential in addressing those needs in primary care clinical settings. The talk also provides strategies to prioritize competing issues during rather short primary care encounters and to address these issues effectively. To highlight clinical problems, case discussion format is used, and relevant evidence-based references are included.

Mobility disorders are a menace of old age, often resulting in falls, injuries, and especially hip fractures -- the sixth leading cause of death in the elderly. Primary care physicians have difficulties in both detecting and correctly identifying these abnormalities. In a paper published in the Journal of the American Geriatrics Society in 2004 [52(9):1527-31], the authors concluded that "community physicians appear to underdetect falls and gait disorders, leading to a paucity of recommendations and treatments." Hence the need to revisit the most common gait abnormalities. This multimedia presentation will provide a panorama of bipedalism, from its origin six million years ago in the savannahs of East Africa, to its rise as the unique trait of our species, and eventually to its status as a major cause of disability once full bipedalism is lost. The talk will review the physiology of ambulation and the prevalence of gait disorders in the population. In addition to detailed information on psychogenic and antalgic gaits, participants will learn about the seven major gait abnormalities. Whenever possible, the speaker will enliven the delivery by reviewing "famous patients," or vignettes of historical figures and celebrities who suffered the disorder.
