Program Purpose:
The purpose of these lectures is to provide an overview of the management of common endocrinology problems utilizing new guidelines and medications to improve the care of patients seen in primary care settings. Areas covered include: thyroid disorders and the effectiveness of dietary, surgical and medical therapy for obesity.

New guidelines have been published by the American College of Cardiology for the management of lipid disorders and cases will be used to illustrate their effective use. Comfortable use of the diagnostic tests and medications for metabolic bone problems is another goal. An approach to the integration of new diabetes medications into primary care practice and the American Diabetes Association guideline changes for 2020 will be discussed to improve understanding of their utility in various types of patients particularly those with complications from diabetes. Advances in the diagnosis and management of common pituitary and adrenal disorders have recently changed with new guidelines from the Endocrine Society.

It is estimated that more than 100 million adults in the United States experience chronic pain and that over 20 million experience moderate to severe also known as "high impact" chronic pain. It is therefore not surprising that pain is the most common reason for a person to visit a health care provider. We will cover key timely topics in pain management focused and enabling the participant to become more comfortable with the assessment and treatment of various chronic pain conditions.
