In the second of three modules on continuous glucose monitoring (CGM), this activity is engineered with adaptive learning technology to personalize your education. This module will test your knowledge and provide unique feedback based on your question responses. Topics to be covered include an explanation of the types of data obtained with CGM, the components of the ambulatory glucose profile (AGP) report and how to interpret this information for individualized diabetes management.
This activity provides a succinct but comprehensive review of pediatric and adult in-office fracture management for primary care providers.
Clinical Coffee Break: The What and Why of GLP-1 RA in Cardiovascular Risk Reduction (An Interactive Video Experience)
In this clinical coffee break, cardiologist Ty Gluckman and endocrinologist Archana Sadhu will explain why glucagon like peptide-1 receptor agonists (GLP-1 RA) are becoming increasingly prominent in diabetes algorithms and cardiovascular risk reduction. Faculty will review the clinical trial data on this class of medications as well as the mechanisms by which GLP-1 RA provide cardiovascular benefit. You will have the opportunity to engage with this activity, viewing resources and testing your knowledge with interactive questions and cases.
Listen for a summary of current guidelines for breast cancer screening that will help you provide the most appropriate screening for your patients based on their individual risk.
Patient Scenarios: A 64-year-old Man with Type 2 Diabetes and High Risk for Atherosclerotic Cardiovascular Disease
An Interactive Case Experience
Time to meet your new patient! In this interactive activity, you will be guided through the case of a patient with type 2 diabetes at high-risk for atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease (ASCVD) via a series of questions and complementary videos. Questions will test your strengths and weaknesses around diabetes management, with some questions and feedback tailored directly to your management choices. After each question, you will be presented with learning moments designed to help increase your confidence managing patients with type 2 diabetes and reducing cardiovascular risk.
Cardiology expert, Christian Ruff, MD, MPH & primary care specialist, Elaine Hylek, MD, MPH will review the latest research and recommendations for patients with polyvascular disease. The faculty also will discuss patient cases that cover long-term atherothrombotic risks, chronic coronary artery disease (CAD)/peripheral artery disease (PAD), benefits of direct oral anticoagulants (DOACs), and considerations for the multidisciplinary team.
Cancer Screening & Hematology: Patient-Centered Clinical Care of African Americans Episode 4: Bridging the Gap: Conversations with Dr. Hall
This session will provide an overview of the differences in the prevention and screening for select cancers (colon, prostate, breast, and lung) in African Americans. Discussion will focus on differences in the interpretation of common laboratory results including TSH, CBC, and others based on population outcome data.
In this session, we will discuss some challenging diagnostic cases faced by primary care practitioners in their practice. Cases will feature interpretation of laboratory and imaging studies, in addition to encounters with rare diseases and conditions. Attendees will learn which aspects of the history and physical exam are most useful to establish certain diagnoses. A goal will be to increase awareness of certain uncommon but “can’t miss” diagnoses, as well as to learn clinical decision aids to improve diagnostic accuracy for certain common diagnoses. Please note that any data, indications, and guidelines presented in this activity are current as of the recording/release on 12/04/2020, and they are subject to change as new information is published.
Dr. Lamas will examine the thin border between life and death through real stories of patients whose lives were saved by modern medical technology. Her talk will also touch on the long-term consequence of survival faced by many coronavirus patients.
When should you recommend Vitamin D to your patients? Based on the latest evidence, which conditions does Vitamin D supplementation help and which does it hinder? Tune in as Dr. Frank Domino sheds some much-needed light on a topic that continues to perplex patients and clinicians alike.
Join us for the first COVID-19 Pulse session of 2021! In the twenty-fourth episode of Pri-Med’s web series on COVID-19, faculty will walk through the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) guidelines for COVID-19 vaccine prioritization as well as the newest data on these vaccines. This session will discuss the emerging SARS-CoV-2 variants and their potential implications. Faculty will conclude with a Q&A session to answer your most pressing COVID-19 questions. Please note that any data, indications, and guidelines presented in this activity are current as of the recording/release on 12/15/2020 and they are subject to change as new information is published.
National lipid expert faculty will discuss the incidence of and diagnostic criteria for statin intolerance, explain the mechanistic rationale for lowering LDL-C through nonstatin therapies, explore novel targets and treatment pathways, and apply the 2018 AHA/ACC Cardiology Cholesterol Guidelines. Learners will have gain practical clinical perspectives during expert case study discussions, including how new treatment options may fit into the current therapeutic landscape.
