Patient Scenarios in Chronic Pain Management: Implementing Evidence Based Practices for Osteoarthritis of the Knee
An Interactive Case Experience
Time to meet your next patient! This interactive patient case scenario will guide you through best practices for a patient who presents with bilateral knee OA. Osteoarthritis (OA) is the most common form of arthritis and a leading cause of disability. A variety of pain management options may be appropriate for OA, including nonpharmacologic, non-opioid pharmacologic, and opioid modalities. You will review approaches to diagnosis and treatment and strategies for identifying risks for potential opioid misuse and abuse.
This activity focuses on improving practitioners’ ability to recognize, diagnose, and classify pain; educating clinicians on the full spectrum of pain management options, including nonpharmacologic and nonopioid pharmacologic interventions; and providing risk reduction strategies through integration of opioids into individualized pain management plans. This activity is supported by an independent educational grant from the Opioid Analgesic REMS Program Companies. Please see https://ce.opioidanalgesicrems.com/RpcCEUI/rems/pdf/resources/List_of_RPC_Companies.pdf for a listing of REMS Program Companies. This activity is intended to be fully compliant with the Opioid Analgesic REMS education requirements issued by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
ADHD is a rising concern in children and adolescents. In this activity, learn about effectively treating ADHD in the presence of comorbid conditions such as depression and anxiety disorders. Dr. Cummins also explains management strategies for dealing with side effects normally associated with stimulants prescribed for ADHD.
As you well know, early detection is essential to improving cancer survival rates. Unfortunately, the current landscape of cancer screening leaves vast room for improvement. This Clinical Coffee Break explores the barriers to optimal early cancer screening and discusses the potential benefits of newer multi-cancer early detection (MCED) testing. This nascent technology is poised to change the game for patients with cancer. Learn what it is, how it works, its benefits and limitations, and emerging and available options. This session is a must-see for primary care clinicians as these tests will only realize their full potential if clinicians on the front line understand how to integrate them into practice.
Carve out 15 minutes in your day to listen to an expert-led podcast on the current landscape of cancer screening and how emerging technology in multi-cancer early detection (MCED) screening tests will likely improve this landscape. Listen while experts define this new technology, explain how it works, and discuss its benefits and limitations. Find out how available and emerging MCED tests can augment your current screening strategies and optimize cancer detection, potentially catching a greater number of early-stage cancers and saving lives.
Join us for a short Clinical Coffee Break to learn how to increase rates of cancer screening among your patients. Many primary care providers (PCPs) struggle to integrate conversations and workflows around cancer screening into their practice, and many patients avoid screening because of a multitude of barriers. This education identifies these obstacles and offers practical tips to overcome them. Most importantly, this session explores newer testing methods, like multi-cancer early detection (MCED), that—if offered to patients by their PCP—have the potential to reduce missed or delayed diagnoses.
Join us for a 15-minute podcast and two 15-minute Clinical Coffee Break activities to explore both the current challenges and emerging landscape of cancer screening, including how the use of multi-cancer early detection (MCED) screening tests may improve cancer care. You’ll not only discover how to integrate newer cancer screening methods into your practice, but you’ll also learn communication strategies to enhance your overall discussions on cancer screening. Across these 3 activities, expert faculty will deliver evidence-based instruction, offer clinical insights, and present case examples to guide you to earlier cancer diagnoses and potentially improve outcomes.
Hypercholesteremia is highly prevalent in the U.S. and strongly associated with cardiovascular morbidity and mortality. Yet, only about 55% of U.S. adults appropriate for cholesterol lowering therapy are currently taking it. What do primary care providers need to know to improve the care of the many individuals with hypercholesterolemia that you see daily in clinical practice? Join Dr. Ty Gluckman for part 2 of this webcast series to find out.
Obesity is a serious chronic illness that requires long-term management; however, it is also drastically underdiagnosed and undertreated. Arm yourself with a concrete understanding of the physiologic factors that contribute to obesity so that you can effectively manage this disease and prevent comorbid conditions. Hear strategies for developing personalized treatment plans based on current and emerging pharmacotherapies. Most importantly, identify biases that may be hindering your care of patients with obesity.
Primary care providers see patients with elevated blood pressure numerous times a day—but do we address it consistently and effectively in a busy practice? Join Dr. Ty Gluckman for a practical approach to diagnosing hypertension, including a discussion of initial laboratory testing and when to evaluate for secondary causes. Additionally, Dr. Gluckman will discuss the effects of various lifestyle changes on blood pressure reduction.
