Description:
This course is intended to provide up-to-date, state-of-the-art continuing medical education for primary care physicians and clinicians who are on the front lines of identifying and managing a wide spectrum of diabetes and endocrine disorders. In order to be successful, it is critically important that you know when and how to identify important endocrine disorders in adults, when to screen for them and how best to manage your patients with obesity and type 2 diabetes.

It minimizes unnecessary investigations and misinterpretation of data. If you provide care to patients with endocrine disorders, diabetes or obesity, this course will be invaluable. You will leave with comprehensive strategies, the latest clinical updates and best practices to optimize patient care while enjoying historic Boston in the spring.

• Screening and treating of osteoporosis – understanding the new medications
• Intensifying treatment of people with type 2 diabetes
• Initiation and intensification for insulin in people with type 2 diabetes
• Personalizing nutrition plans and exercise prescriptions for people with diabetes
• Using medications to treat obesity

• Endless activities including theater, museums, fine dining, shopping, historic landmarks and more located just outside the Revere Hotel Boston Common

Learning Objectives:
Upon completion of this activity, participants will be able to:
• Assess the potential for an underlying endocrine etiology for patients presenting with subtle and non-specific symptoms
• Select appropriate laboratory and imaging assessments to initiate the evaluation and management planning of patients suspected of having endocrine disease.
• Evaluate and, when appropriate, refer patients to a consultant endocrinologist for further diagnostic evaluation, advanced therapeutic intervention and co-management when appropriate
