New Drugs for the PCP: What You Need to Know

1.00 CME/MOC

This talk provides a balanced evaluation of these important novel drugs, and will address efficacy, side effects, cost, and the impact on primary care practice. In addition, we will discuss at length the efficacy and safety of the COVID vaccines available in the U.S. through Emergency Use Authorization.

He will review the evidence on management of Post-Treatment Lyme Disease Syndrome and offer a rational approach to treatment. Finally, he will discuss the social controversy around “Chronic Lyme.”


0.75 CME CREDIT

With the widespread accessibility to information on the Internet, much of which is not necessarily evidence-based, it appears that patients are more frequently consulting with their caregivers about vague somatic complaints that they think are due to exposure to various microbial organisms. Chronic Lyme disease has become a favorite disease due to some well-publicized celebrities announcing that they are suffering from this disorder. Patients also complain from the effects of mold exposure (“Toxic mold”), parasite infestations (delusions of parasitosis or Morgellon disease), among others. Patients can be very insistent, demanding therapies that are not supported by evidence. This presentation will assist practitioners as to how to appropriately diagnose and counsel patients about these various disorders.
