Evaluation of Microhematuria: A Risk-based Approach - Frankly Speaking EP 199

Guest: Alan Ehrlich MD, FAAFPMusic Credit: Richard Onorato

0.25 CME

Microhematuria is a common finding. It is usually benign, but it needs proper evaluation since it may also be a sign of malignancy. A risk-based approach can avoid unnecessary testing, while still identifying those patients with malignancy. Recent American Urological Association (AUA) guidelines use a validated risk-based approach.

Lung Cancer Screening: The U.S. Preventive Services Task Force Weights In - Frankly Speaking EP 192

Guest: Robert A. Baldor, MD, FAAFPMusic Credit: Richard Onorato

0.25 CME

Currently a low-dose CT scan is the only screening test for lung cancer that is recommended by the American Cancer Society. In July 2020, the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF) issued a draft recommendation statement on screening for lung cancer. The USPSTF suggests annual screening with low-dose CT for individuals aged 50-80 who have a 20 pack-year smoking history and who currently smoke or have quit smoking within the past 15 years. These recommendations expand screening eligibility, but they also suggest that screening be discontinued if a person has not smoked for 15 years, develops a health problem that substantially limits life expectancy, or is unable or unwilling to have curative lung surgery.

"Just a Spoonful of Honey": Evidence Supporting Honey for URTI Symptom Relief - Frankly Speaking EP 198

Guest: Susan Feeney, DNP, FNP-BC, NP-CMusic Credit: Richard Onorato

0.25 CME

Upper respiratory tract infections (URTI) are one of the most common conditions seen in primary care. Effective treatments for this acute, bothersome illness are limited; inappropriate antibiotic prescribing and use of therapeutics with little evidence of effectiveness are common. Join our discussion as we discuss a recent meta-analysis from the BMJ which suggests that honey, in any form, is superior to usual, common treatment for URTIs.

What Testing is Appropriate at an Annual Health Exam: What, When, and WHY? - Frankly Speaking EP 191

Guest: Susan Feeney, DNP, FNP-BC Music Credit: Richard Onorato

0.25 CME

Screening for asymptomatic conditions is an essential and important aspect of primary care. But what is the potential downstream impact to the patents and the healthcare system when low-risk individuals are screened? What are the benefits and the potential harms? Join us as we discuss a recent retrospective study on the downstream effects of low-value testing on low-risk people at their annual health exam and how this may impact your practice.

Heart Failure with Preserved Ejection Fraction (HFpEF): Pathophysiology vs Outcomes Are We Narrowing the Gap?

Industry Webcast Sponsored by Novartis Pharmaceuticals Corporation; Not for CME/CE Credit

Heart failure with preserved ejection fraction (HFpEF) is a complex disease with pathophysiological heterogeneity, whose treatment is primarily focused on management of symptoms vs treatment of the underlying disease. This talk will highlight some of the multiple pathways being explored in the attempt to bridge the gap between managing comorbidities/symptoms and treating the disease itself.

Primary Care Heart Failure Learning Module

An Adaptive Learning Experience Sponsored by Novartis Pharmaceuticals Corporation; Not for CME/CE Credit

Heart failure (HF) is a complex syndrome brought on by impairment of the structure or function of ventricular filling or blood ejection. These changes can significantly decrease quality of life, resulting in edema, dyspnea, and fatigue. The disease is widespread and progresses in severity, resulting in significant morbidity and mortality. This course is built on the latest HF guidelines and seeks to help learners better understand this prevalent, serious disease. Topics include pathophysiology, etiology, and epidemiology, morbidity and mortality, diagnosis through the use of biomarkers and other screening tools, impact of HF hospitalization, hospitalization care goals and team-based care.
