Target Audience: Physicians, Physician Assistants, Nurses, Nurse Practitioners, Pharmacists Accreditation: • 14 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™ • 14 ACPE Credits • 14.0 Contact Hours • 10 ¾ Hours of Pharmacology for NPs 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.

ANZCA: Participants in the ANZCA and FPM CPD program may claim this this course under the Knowledge and skills activity Short format learning at 2 credits per hour Description: Resource limitation is not constrained to the third world. Austere environments occur in retrieval medicine, rural medicine, or after hours in regional hospitals. Informed use of point of care ultrasound can risk stratify many difficult decisions. Could this be an ectopic? Is this heart failure or COPD? Renal colic, cholecystitis or an aneurysm? Pneumothorax? Should I fluid load or diurese? Can I safely insert an intercostal catheter? How should I transport this patient? Previously the purview of radiology, all these questions can be answered at the bedside, or the roadside – with nothing more than a hand held ultrasound. This five day course provides a basic introduction to problem solving for these low risk-high stakes questions. This course targets important branch points in management decisions rather than a deep dive into any one system. Take these tools home, practise in your own environment, then work with us toward credentialing in those protocols that will have the highest yield in your job.
