The session will overview the challenge and impact of burnout, explore factors that threaten individual and organizational wellness, and discuss evidence-based strategies for leading change at the personal and the systems level. Participants will have an opportunity to reflect on personal health priorities while strengthening their commitment to a culture of wellness. They will discuss the process of change and critically analyze and choose areas for personal improvement beginning with a needs assessment and ending with an actionable health improvement plan. Participants will receive time, tools and strategies to succeed personally and to partner with colleagues to create greater impact.
Primary care health providers play an important role in getting patients to adopt healthy behaviors and make positive lifestyle changes. Learn to apply patient-centric communication strategies such as open-ended questioning, affirmations and reflective listening to get patients to initiate changes.
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.
The amount of information available in the form of clinical trials and cohort studies is overwhelming, especially for primary care clinicians. Moreover, practice guidelines do not always reflect what is feasible or even best practice in specific clinical settings. This session will highlight some of the strongest research and guidelines that may alter clinical practice, with a focus on literature published in the past year. Every participant should take away several practical points that help them provide better patient care. The session will have an interactive component, which will allow for different perspectives and collective wisdom to make the best use of current evidence.
While it is well established that selected lifestyle factors are individually associated with lower risk of chronic diseases, it has been unclear which combinations of these factors are associated with disease-free life-years. This session presents the result of a recent meta-analysis that provides insights into this important subject.
Lifestyle management has proven effective for addressing modifiable health risks, but can be challenging for patients to implement and maintain. This session will focus on wellness coaching as an important component of healthy living, both for patients and providers. Participants will learn about the benefits of engaging patients in health and wellness coaching, and will discuss strategies for incorporating this practice into their own patient care setting(s).
This podcast will provide an update on the medical literature and practice guidelines pertaining to exercise. Participants will deepen their understanding of the physical and mental health benefits of exercise and will examine the evidence for a variety of common approaches to exercise (cardiovascular, strength training, high intensity interval training).
