Conference Brochure

Medical/Dental Healthcare Needs is organized by Professional Education Society (PES) and will be held from Jul 29 - Aug 05, 2019 at Le Boreal, Reykjavik, Reykjavikurborg, Iceland.

Continuing Education:
Physicians: Programs are reviewed by the American Academy of Family Physicians for up to 12 Prescribed Credit Hours. AAFP Prescribed credit is accepted by the American Medical Association as equivalent to AMA PRA Category 1 credit(s) toward the AMA Physician Recognition Award. When applying for the AMA PRA, Prescribed credit earned must be reported as Prescribed, not as Category 1.

The Professional Education Society designates this activity for up to 12 continuing education credits.

Nurses: The Professional Education Society is approved by the California Board of Registered Nursing, Provider Number CEP 5428, for up to 12 contact hours.

Course Overview:
PES is fortunate to have dental and medical practitioners representing a variety of specialties participating in the CME/CE sessions. PES understands the importance of offering inter-professional healthcare education, allowing colleagues to gain cross-specialty perspectives and updates in the treatment and prevention of disease. The need to adapt best practice models in the context of emerging healthcare reforms impacting patient care delivery and access to care is an important issue for all healthcare practitioners.

Icelanders have long been proud of their health care system and believed it to be among the best in the world. For a long time, Icelanders enjoyed (along with Japan) the highest life expectancy in the world. Iceland is a developed country and as such its major health issues are similar to countries in other parts of the Western World. Mental health problems and obesity seem to be the topics most frequently covered by the media. Another common issue is the status of the health care system itself which seems to be in a decline. All Icelandic citizens are covered by the national health insurance scheme. The system is mostly financed by taxes although a small fraction is paid with service fees (15%). The Icelandic healthcare system is divided into four different categories: health care clinics, health institutions such as mental health faculties and institutions with long term in-patients, university hospitals and teaching hospitals. Major hospitals include the Landspitali University Hospital in Reykjavik and the Akureyri Hospital.

Confronting the challenges of delivering quality patient care in the face of increased budget restriction and resources within the overall framework of continued healthcare reform is fast becoming a global issue for healthcare practitioners. It is timely to provide an overview of the current status of healthcare delivery systems, their impact on populations and how key health issues are addressed in both the UK and North America.

Seminar Topics:
• Medical Challenges & Conquests in Iceland: Delivery Strategies in Isolated Communities
• Overview of Iceland and Iceland Healthcare
• Overview of Bisphosphonates and Other Antiresorptive Medications in Dentistry
• Diagnosis and Therapeutic Management of Orofacial Disease and Pain Syndromes
• Healthy Gut = Healthy You! – What your microbiome wants for dinner
• Building Better Bones Naturally – A whole body approach to peak bone health at any age
• Medicine at Sea: Typical Ailments, Common Travelers’ Illness, Challenges of Shipboard Medicine and On-Board Medical Center Supplies

Educational Goals: Our goal is to provide unparalleled CME/CE travel opportunities for healthcare professionals that combine their most passionate destination desires with their educational goals, fostering exceptional learning experiences, friendships and connections with national and international colleagues.
• Conduct educational healthcare programs to learn about best practice models reflecting current approaches in medicine and healthcare across different cultures for providing quality patient outcomes
• Provide professional educational exchanges with international colleagues, healthcare educational organizations and clinics to gain cross-cultural perspectives and updates in the treatment and prevention of disease
• Allow medical/healthcare professionals to compare and contrast current best practices in medical/healthcare delivery to provide quality patient outcomes in their own professional setting

Learning Objectives: Keep abreast of rapid expansion of medical knowledge and current best practice models on multiple topics to facilitate change and thus provide continually excellent patient care.
