Early Recognition and Treatment of Common Rheumatologic Disorders

This is a clinical bedside approach to treating the patient with multiple aches and pains based on the target of inflammation in the joint and the distribution of affected joints. Using this approach, we can sort out non-inflammatory arthritis as represented by osteoarthritis from inflammatory synovitis (rheumatoid arthritis), inflammatory enthesitis (ankylosing spondylitis, psoriatic arthritis), and non-inflammatory rheumatic conditions like fibromyalgia. The use of X-rays, ultrasound, and MRI, and common laboratory studies like ESR, CRP, rheumatoid factor, anti-CCP, and ANA will be discussed.

Our patients are aging before our very eyes. A 72-year-old patient who used to come bounding down the hallway, is now, fifteen years later, using a walker and taking ten minutes to enter the exam room. We are facing questions from concerned adult children about whether their parents -- your patients -- are safe living, driving, or managing finances alone. Participants will review the factors that impact aging-in-place, learn about office-based tests evaluating a senior’s independence, receive information regarding available support resources, and gain insights on navigating transitions to long-term communities. The lecture will also discuss the options in long-term care living and innovative alternatives in the long-term care field.

Clinicians confront ongoing and increasingly complex challenges around delivering immunization in their practice. Vaccine hesitancy among patients, conflicting "messaging" about the need, efficacy, and appropriate scheduling of certain vaccines in the lay and medical press as well as issues related to financing of vaccination efforts in the office setting and ongoing changes in official vaccine recommendations all contribute to this challenge. The speaker will discuss contemporary issues related to addressing vaccine delivery including 1) understanding the science of vaccines and vaccine safety and effectiveness, 2) reviewing the latest vaccine recommendations, and 3) learning simple, yet effective and time-efficient strategies to overcome vaccine hesitancy in the office.

Medical group visits are moving into the mainstream in primary care. They are very popular in the care of prenatal patients, diabetes, and those with chronic health conditions. Participants in this session will learn about different types of group visits and receive insights on overcoming patient confidentiality concerns.

Providers are under increasing pressure to ensure safe and effective prescribing of chronic opiates in light of the opiate epidemic. When a provider needs to taper a dose or wean a patient off chronic opiates, providers may have a lack of knowledge and comfort on how to do so while minimizing symptoms to the patient. This talk will review the signs and symptoms of withdrawal, who is at risk of withdrawal and medications providers can use to minimize withdrawal symptoms. Participants will also walk away with practical rules and guidelines on how to wean patients off chronic opiates or taper to a lower dose. Finally, the talk will review options for transitioning patients to addiction treatment. Participants will get to practice what they learn through several interactive cases.

This presentation will provide a pulmonologist’s “curbside consult” on three common topics in pulmonary medicine: treating a patient with chronic cough, managing with a patient with a positive PPD skin test, and following up after the finding of a solitary pulmonary nodule on chest imaging. The first section will emphasize the differential diagnoses for chronic cough besides asthma, such as post-nasal drip, gastroesophageal reflux, and angiotensin converting enzyme inhibitor-associated cough. The second section will address who should be tested for latent tuberculosis, how best to test, and optimal patient selection for TB chemoprophylaxis. In the third section, we will consider annual screening for lung cancer in active and former smokers, and how to manage an incidentally found solitary lung nodule.

Through the use of live demonstrations and interactive cases this session will provide up to date evaluation and management of common pelvis, hip, and thigh complaints. Review history and physical exam techniques for pelvis, hip and thigh pain with live demonstrations of various relevant exam maneuvers. This information will be applicable to the all patient populations and is designed for family physicians, internists, sports medicine physicians in a clinic or nonoperative/noninvasive setting. At the end of this session the participant would have gained a more comprehensive understanding of how to assist in common pelvis, hip, and thigh complaints.

This talk will focus on the central importance of power differentials in relationships and the role of power and control in intimate partner violence (IPV). The speaker will outline the identifying signs and symptoms of abuse and discuss techniques for screening for IPV during office visits. Participants will review opportunities and methods for developing safety plans and providing emotional, legal, and medical support to patients when IPV has been identified. The #MeToo movement is an empowering catalyst for victims to speak out about abuse; we as providers are in a unique and privileged position to support and advocate for these deserving patients. This online activity is approved by the Florida Board of Nursing for APRNs, for 1 hour on Domestic Violence (approved as of 2/11/20). This activity meets the criteria of the Florida Board of Medicine; approval is not required. CE Broker Provider #50-27480, Activity #20-688617

The screening, laboratory detection, pharmacology will be briefly discussed along with the ethology and pathogenesis of serious cannabis use disorders. Medical and psychiatric comorbidities will be delineated. A brief review of the history of cannabis use and its cultural significance will follow. The faculty will discuss medical complications and the arguments for medical marijuana use and outline the controversial political and industrial complexities of medical marijuana and cannabis legalization.

Faculty will discuss the latest date on the epidemiology and pathogenesis of UTI with a focus on the non-catheterized woman. UTIS are very common and a considerable amount of antimicrobial use is aimed at treatment of this infection. Thus, it is very important that we try to be good stewards for our antimicrobial armamentarium as we decide who warrants treatment and whether treatment can be safely delayed or avoided. Likewise, there are several prevention modalities available that should be considered before turning to antimicrobials in the woman with recurrent UTI. Lastly, there are some very exciting prevention approaches under development that may provide us with safe and effective antimicrobial-sparing strategies in the future.

Each year, the American Cancer Society (ACS) publishes guidelines for early cancer detection, trends in cancer screening rates, and issues related to cancer screening. This presentation will summarize current ACS screening guidelines and an updated guideline for using human papillomavirus vaccination for cancer prevention. Further, the speaker will review updates in U.S. Preventive Services Task Force recommendations for breast and colorectal cancer screening and discuss interim findings from the UK Collaborative Trial on Ovarian Cancer Screening. Finally, utilization of cancer screening from the National Health Interview Survey will be presented.
