There are countless vitamins and supplements that patients use for a variety of conditions. Many patients prefer these substances because they believe them to be more natural than pharmaceutical products. Patients often turn to clinicians for advice on these agents. This case-based session will feature many of the most commonly used products and review evidence assessing their efficacy and harms.


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.


This program is designed to address some of the practical clinical issues from the recent literature. You will learn about controversies and caveats that will help you interpret recent updates. A few case examples of routine practice encounters will illustrate how to apply this new information in daily practice. Please note that any data, indications, and guidelines presented in this activity are current as of the recording/release on February 9, 2020, and they are subject to change as new information is published.

We will also identify those who may need adjuncts to their diet and useful databases to find more information.
