Conference Brochure

UCSF CME: Medical Care of Vulnerable and Underserved Populations is organized by The University of California, San Francisco (UCSF) Office of Continuing Medical Education and will be held during Mar 01 - 03, 2018 at Holiday Inn - Golden Gateway, San Francisco, California, United States of America.

The target audience for this medical event is for all specialties, particularly for those health care providers that work with underserved patients in teaching, safety net, or community practices. Physicians and subspecialists, advanced practice providers, psychologists, public health practitioners, and nurses would all find our material educational. This CME Conference has been approved for a maximum of 24.25 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits.

Conference Description :
Topics to be covered will include updates in a broad range of diseases that disproportionately affect vulnerable patients, such as diabetes, Hepatitis C, HIV, depression, PTSD, heart failure, and hypertension. In addition, we discuss how clinicians can address social factors that complicate the management of medical illness, such as low health literacy, intimate partner violence, food insecurity, etc. We will also tackle how best to integrate behavioral health care for patients with chronic pain, severe mental illness, substance use and complex post-traumatic stress. Each day we will feature a nationally renowned figure in the field of the care of vulnerable populations who will deliver pearls and impart wisdom with respect to how to stay engaged, connected, and inspired.

Conference Objectives are :
• Implement an approach to effectively integrate social vulnerability and resilience into clinical care.
• Recognize the effect of food insecurity on patient outcomes.
• Review what is meant by “Trauma Informed Care”.
• Improve approaches to the care of a patient with a history of chronic pain.
• Discuss the emerging threats to public health.
• Stay abreast of updates on COPD, HIV, dementia, and other chronic illnesses.
• Describe an approach to caring for a patient with PTSD.
• Review healthcare economics for the underserved.
• Discuss implicit bias and patient care.
