Description:
The seven lectures on Adult and Pediatric Urology will review recent guidelines as well as current advances in the evaluation and management of a number of commonly encountered Adult and Pediatric Urologic Conditions encountered in both Primary Care and Specialty Care offices. A review of recent changes in the guidelines and recommendations in such conditions as undescended testes radiologic and medical management of urolithiasis, evaluation and management of overactive bladder and the evaluation and management of uncomplicated urinary tract infections in women is essential to ensure that individuals affected by these conditions achieve timely and appropriate treatment to minimize long-term adverse effects. Primary care providers must be aware of recent advances in the field of Urologic oncology, particularly indications and adverse events associated with newer therapies as well as the role of biomarkers in the various urologic malignancies. Lastly, pediatric urologic conditions are commonly identified in the primary care office and thus an understanding of commonly encountered pediatric urologic conditions will help primary care providers to determine what children need urgent evaluation and which children may be further evaluated and managed by the primary care provider. The team approach to management of such conditions may optimize, minimize morbidity and cost.

Cardiology: These lectures are intended to provide medical care providers interested in the practice of clinical cardiology, the prevention and mangement of atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease and lipid management a review of the clinical applicability and evidence-base for the most recent standards of care in diagnosis and therapy. These health-care providers function as the captain of the healthcare team in the outpatient and inpatient setting. By coordinating resources amongst mid-level providers, nurses, pharmacists, medical assistants and administrative support staff, the primary care provider can help achieve optimal clinical outcomes for their patients afflicted by cardiovascular diseases. To fulfill this mission, the provider must understand the risks and benefits, costs, clinical pitfalls and limitations of evaluation and treatment strategies advocated by current practice standards and guidelines.
