Managing Sleep Maintenance Insomnia in Older Adults

1.00 CME/MOC
0.85 AANP | 0.32 Pharmacology |

This activity provides evidence-based insights, with an emphasis on current gaps in sleep maintenance insomnia. You will learn about the current challenges associated with managing sleep maintenance insomnia and how to utilize currently available and emerging treatments for management, especially in your older and elderly patients.

Infectious diseases syndromes are common in primary care practices. However, staying current with relevant literature that may influence appropriate evaluation and treatment of patients with these syndromes can be difficult, given the volumes of applicable articles and diversity of journals publishing these reports. This session will present some common infectious disease scenarios and provide crucial literature updates. You will learn about how responding to histories of penicillin allergy may result in adverse patient outcomes, the proper timing of influenza vaccination, the influence of substance abuse on risk medication adherence and infectious diseases risk, the appropriate evaluation of patients with suspected cellulitis syndromes, and the role of preoperative urine screening.

Common sleep myths pervade both the community and the medical world. In this session, the faculty will address the science behind them and present methods to manage these situations preemptively. The talk will cover several common sleep-related complaints that present to primary care: insomnia, daytime sleepiness, and sleep apnea. You will also walk away with information about more unusual conditions—such as restless leg syndrome and excessive sleepiness—and how to use questionnaires to diagnose them.

By determining the target of inflammation in the joint and the distribution of affected joints, a clinician can distinguish among non-inflammatory arthritis (osteoarthritis), other non-inflammatory rheumatic conditions (like fibromyalgia), and inflammatory conditions such as inflammatory synovitis (rheumatoid arthritis) and inflammatory enthesitis (ankylosing spondylitis, psoriatic arthritis).

I will discuss the clinical evaluation of a patient from initial finding of an abnormal chest imaging to diagnosis of lung cancer. CT scans of the chest often have abnormalities where some require urgent work up and others require later CT scans or even no follow up driven by the characteristics of the abnormalities and patient’s risk analysis. Work up of the Chest CT abnormalities differs based on its location and associated findings in mediastinal nodes and/or extrathoracic findings. Based on this analysis, different techniques of biopsy will apply often directed by the findings of a PT CT scan. The work up algorithm is designed to ensure that diagnosis is obtained using a strategy focused on determining a cancer’s stage and diagnosis using a single biopsy. Each biopsy method has unique attributes that pertain both to yield and complication rates that need to factor into the decision on how to biopsy. Finally, obtaining tissue diagnosis now requires molecular analysis of the tumor to dictate treatment decisions. Issues on appropriately obtaining adequate tissue samples are discussed.
