This rare educational opportunity has been developed by the American Association of Clinical Endocrinologists (AACE) for the entire primary care team. There is a shortage of endocrinologists. As endocrine disorders are on the rise, it’s very important that primary care providers take a role in patient management. This activity provides the primary care team with the necessary knowledge and skills to care for common endocrine disorders in the primary care setting and co-manage endocrine conditions with endocrinology colleagues. Bone, obesity, lipids, diabetes, and thyroid are covered in short modules that combine teaching slides with videotaped faculty panel discussions.
• Identify key aspects of the workup for the given endocrine disorder
• Explain aspects of patient presentation and/or course that necessitate referral to an endocrinologist
• Summarize key characteristics of evidence-based assessment and treatment options for the given disorder
• Formulate a management plan that includes steps/strategies supporting optimal PCP-endocrinologist collaboration
