UCSF CME: Medical Care of Vulnerable and Underserved Populations 2019
UCSF CME: Medical Care of Vulnerable and Underserved Populations 2019 is organized by The University of California, San Francisco (UCSF) Office of Continuing Medical Education and will be held from Feb 28 - Mar 02, 2019 at Holiday Inn San Francisco-Golden Gateway, San Francisco, California, United States of America.
The target audience for this medical event is appropriate 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.
After years of documenting disparities in health and health care based on race, ethnicity, gender, education, and socioeconomic status, the medical community has shifted its focus to pursuing health equity or “striving for the highest possible standard of health for all people while giving special attention to the needs of those at greatest risk of poor health, based on social conditions.” (Braveman, 2014) With publicly insured and uninsured patients making up about half of all outpatient visits in the US, and millions of previously uninsured patients continuing to access to health care through Medicaid expansions, becoming an expert in caring for the complicated medical and social needs of vulnerable and underserved patients is crucial to every healthcare provider.
World-class experts and front-line practitioners from the Zuckerberg San Francisco General and the UCSF Center for Vulnerable Populations will present approaches to mitigate the challenges in caring for vulnerable populations and enhance the profound joy clinicians can experience when engaging with patients in greatest need. Topics to be covered will include updates in a broad range of diseases that disproportionately affect vulnerable patients, such as HIV, depression, PTSD, obesity, hepatitis and substance use. In addition, we discuss how clinicians can address social factors that complicate the management of medical illness, such as homelessness, school suspension, a history of trauma or of incarceration and food insecurity, etc. 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 in this work.
An attendee completing this course will be able to:
• Review the latest updates in research on health disparities and health equity.
• Describe an approach to considering social vulnerability in medical care.
• Discuss updates in PTSD diagnosis and treatment.
• Review the care of transgender patients.
• Recognize the effect of food insecurity and homelessness on patient outcomes.
