Screening of the young athlete ranges from questionnaires to advanced cardiovascular diagnostic testing. The risk of disease in this population is quite low, yet each event has devastating consequences to families and communities. Prevention of even one event makes such clear moral sense that we feel obligated to employ any and all available tools that could possibly help do just that. It is important that we understand the tools available and that we use them effectively to save as many susceptible young lives as possible. It will be the goal of this talk to best understand the tools available with their advantages and disadvantages. We will also discuss the controversies surrounding these population health screening programs.

Primary care providers frequently encounter various types of chronic non-cancer pain in their practice, including chronic low back pain, chronic headache, fibromyalgia, neuropathic pain, osteoarthritis, and others. Best practices for the management of chronic non-cancer pain consist of a multimodal approach, with the optimal incorporation of non-opioid treatment approaches. This session will describe multiple approaches to non-opioid pain management for the primary care. Strategies include both pharmacologic and non-pharmacologic approaches as well as interventional approaches. Recognizing that some of these may require referral to a specialist, the primary care provider, with heightened awareness of multiple non-opioid pain management treatments, will be able to more comprehensively evaluate and treat their patients with chronic pain.

As such, it has been and continues to be considered a diagnosis of exclusion when in reality newer diagnostic criteria and minimal diagnostic testing can lead to a diagnosis with 98-99% accuracy. A better understanding of the underlying pathophysiology of this disorder has also let to more accurate treatment strategies. In this discussion we will dispel many of the myths and misconceptions surrounding this syndrome.
