Fatigue is a very common presenting symptom in primary care but a small subset of patients with chronic fatigue syndrome have persistent fatigue accompanied by multisystem complaints of unrefreshed sleep, post-exertional malaise, orthostatic symptoms, and cognitive impairment. Those with widespread pain and tenderness fit an alternative diagnosis of fibromyalgia. Both are severely debilitating illnesses of uncertain cause. This lecture discusses the evolving concepts regarding CFS and its relationship to FM. Diagnosis and treatment are discussed.

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.

This talk will focus on several pulmonary topics that often arise in the primary care setting. I have chosen these topics based on scenarios that are common and confusing. For instance, I will review my approach to patients who come to clinic with a diagnosis of asthma for whom the clinical suspicion is low including spirometry and methacholine challenge interpretation. Next, we will review the evidence for using long term oxygen therapy in respiratory patients including the various oxygen delivery systems. I will also cover the approach to chronic cough when the typical therapies have failed to improve symptoms. I will finish with the current evidence and approach to lung cancer screening. If time remains we will answers additional questions from the audience.

Many physicians consciously (or unconsciously) avoid talking to patients about weight loss, although 70% of American adults are overweight or obese. Meanwhile, the public is constantly bombarded with “solutions” that don’t work from friends, social media, and beyond. How can we compete with that volume of misinformation in a fifteen-minute office visit? There are two tools that can empower providers to address obesity in an effective and efficient manner: motivational interviewing and dietary recalls. This talk will teach the basic introductory skills needed to immediately incorporate these interventions into your practice. Additionally, this talk will address the popular gluten-free diet, and how it may or may not help patients beyond those diagnosed with celiac disease. The more physicians prioritize dietary interventions, the more our patients will, too.
