Program Summary
Primary care providers face complex challenges everyday in their busy practices. With rapid changes in medicine, staying informed about new developments can be equally challenging. Our goal in this CME activity is to help you hone your skills in the diagnosis and management of patients with varied conditions you are likely encountering in your practice.

We have recruited a faculty of well-known thought leaders and experienced teachers who, as clinicians themselves, understand the challenges you face every day as a primary care provider. Our faculty will be at your disposal to provide evidence-based science, current treatment guidelines, discuss challenging cases, and provide answers for you that can ultimately lead to better health care for your patients. The presentations will include several interactive cases and discussion sessions to keep you actively learning.

Please join us and become an active participant in this one-day learning community of your peers.

Discuss clinician and patient barriers to initiation and intensification of insulin therapy; Recognize the prevalence and clinical impact of hypoglycemia in special populations at risk; Discuss the pharmacology and clinical differences between existing and new long-acting and concentrated insulins; Discuss how to incorporate new basal and concentrated insulins into clinical practice while minimizing the risk of adverse events
  3. Review the risk factors and classification of pulmonary hypertension (PH); Discuss the appropriate diagnostic strategy for pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH), including the roles of echocardiography, ventilation/perfusion (V/Q) scanning, and right heart catheterization (RHC); Review current and emerging treatments for patients with PAH; Describe how to monitor patients with PAH for disease progression
  4. Assess patients for treatment with ER/LA opioid analgesics; Evaluate and initiate therapy, modify dose, and discontinue use of ER/LA opioid analgesics; Manage ongoing therapy with ER/LA opioid analgesics; Perform effective counseling with patients and caregivers about the safe use of ER/LA opioid analgesics, including proper storage and disposal; Identify general and product-specific drug information concerning ER/LA opioid analgesics
  5. Describe the newer concepts in the pathophysiology of asthma and type 2 inflammation, and the implications of biologic therapies in the era of precision medicine; Determine the utility of simple biomarkers to identify patients who are candidates for targeted biologic therapies and appropriate referral; Discuss the impact of comorbid conditions on asthma control and the evidence-based approach to their treatment; Discuss the paradigms of multidisciplinary care in asthma, with an emphasis on patient and provider education, to improve adherence to inhalers and emerging biologic therapies in asthma
