Overview: This three-day intensive conference, held on June 26-28, 2020 in Charleston, South Carolina, discusses all the issues confronting clinicians who treat challenging patients with diabetes, hypertension, and dyslipidemia and how to apply this knowledge to everyday practice. Over the past several years controversies in the appropriate level of Hemoglobin A1C, BP, and LDL-Cholesterol for outcome growth continue to occur in Type 2 Diabetes, Hypertension, and Dyslipidemia, respectively. Despite the results from the ACCORD, VADT, and ADVANCE studies suggesting the benefits on reducing macrovascular disease with a more intensive strategy for A1C reduction remains unclear, individualized A1C targets for those with newly diagnosed diabetes compared to those with long-standing disease are often recommended. In addition, controversy continues to exist in cholesterol control as recent guidelines suggest that one should decide on the intensity of statin-based therapy for outcome improvement in those at risk for or with established ASCVD rather than a specific goal of LDL-cholesterol reduction. Finally, the recent SPRINT trial has suggested that lower targets for BP reduction than ever achieved before can and should be achieved in high-risk adults with hypertension. This conference will address these and other issues confronting the clinician who treats challenging patients with diabetes, hypertension, and dyslipidemia. The participant will learn the most current information on these issues and will be able to apply these important clinical principles back to their everyday practise to improve the care of their patients. Program Objectives: By the end of this educational activity, an attendee will be able to, • Express an efficient and effective assessment and monitoring plan of a patient's condition as it relates to hypertension, diabetes, and dyslipidemia. • Employ current guidelines in the diagnosis and management of diabetes, hypertension, and dyslipidemia. • Form individualized interventions and treatment strategies for patients presenting with hypertension, diabetes, and/or dyslipidemia that will lead to the reduction of modifiable risk factors and improved long term outcomes. Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.

This CE activity provides 8.0 contact hours of continuing nursing education. Medical Education Resources is a provider of continuing nursing education by the California Board of Registered Nursing, Provider #CEP 12299, for  contact hours. Description: Improved techniques, new, safer sclerosing agents, and high patient demand for in-office aesthetic procedures makes Sclerotherapy Training for nurses and physicians a must for any physician practice wishing to expand their services. Over 80 million Americans suffer from unsightly venous disease and the vast majority (75%) of these is cosmetic in nature which you will understand and be able to treat after completing the training. Visible veins give the impression of age and poor health and though many people wish to receive treatment, they are unaware of the safety, effectiveness, and lack of discomfort associated with newer sclerotherapy methods. Sclerotherapy by injection uses small amounts of detergent solutions to irritate the vein walls and achieve ultimate closure of the unwanted vein. Cosmetic laser centers and vein clinics perform these procedures not only because they are lucrative and simple to perform, but also because their patients receive impressive results using both laser vein therapies and traditional sclerotherapy using FDA approved detergent sclerosants. EMT's comprehensive sclerotherapy training will take you from the prospective patient through the consultation process as well as teach you the latest techniques and protocols used today. Program Overview: The Sclerotherapy seminar is a combination lecture and workshop where learners will participate in didactic lectures in the morning followed by hands on training in the afternoon. Learners will understand how to use FDA approved sclerosants for various cosmetic vein indications and will also gain a proficiency in the administration as well. The purpose of the training is to help learners provide enhanced patient care to those who present themselves with various medical and cosmetic vein conditions. Procedures which have not been taught in their previous medical education. Learning Outcomes: • To acquire the necessary skills to properly identify the ideal candidate who will maximally benefit from the Aesthetic Procedures and will also acquire the technical skills to perform such skills to benefit patients aesthetically. • To educate physicians further concerning their base knowledge of venous anatomy and pathophysiology of medical and aesthetic venous disease. Improve their diagnostic skills concerning medical associated venous disease and improve patient outcomes. • To acquire the necessary skills to properly identify the ideal candidate for cosmetic sclerotherapy through physical examination and be able to administer treatments in a safe and efficacious manner for greater patient satisfaction. Educational Objectives: • Practice procedures such as cosmetic sclerotherapy injections competently, safely, and effectively for their patient. Each participant will understand and learn how to avoid risks and associated complications. • Apply and understand the generally accepted protocols for the administration of the (2) FDA Approved sclerosants for aesthetic indications (i.e. unwanted arterioles, telangiectasias, and reticular veins). Learn the proper guidelines for the acquisition, patient charting, administration issues (i.e. medical intake forms, informed consents) and the corrective measures for adverse events. • Describe the mechanism of action and basic venous anatomy, differences between the product characteristics, managing expectations, and accepted after care for follow up after the sclerotherapy procedure. • Identify who is a proper candidate for the aesthetic sclerotherapy procedure, patient benefits, and education concerning the development of unwanted veins and other environmental reasons for their development. Increase patient awareness and offer enhanced patient care in relation to the management of these unwanted legs and facial veins.

CME MOC: Successful completion of this CME activity which includes participation in the evaluation component, enables the participant to earn up to 14.5 MOC points in the American Board of Internal Medicine's (ABIM) Maintenance of Certification (MOC) program. Participants will earn MOC points equivalent to the amount of CME credits claimed for the activity. It is the CME activity provider's responsibility to submit participant completion information to ACCME for the purpose of granting ABIM MOC credit. Knowledge Gaps: There are now more patients who have Heart Failure with preserved Ejection Fraction (HFpEF) than those with reduced Ejection Fraction (HFrEF). Making the diagnosis of HFpEF is more challenging than HFrEF as many commonly used screening tools such as physical examination, echocardiography and measurement of natriuretic peptide levels are less sensitive and specific in this population. Most importantly, no therapies have yet been shown to improve major cardiovascular outcome (i.e. reductions in hospitalization rates or lower mortality). Several ongoing studies are evaluating novel treatments for this disorder. Learning Objectives: At the completion of this conference, participants should be able to: • Recognize patients with HFpEF and understand pitfalls of the diagnosis • Describe the pathophysiology of HFpEF including characteristic hemodynamic alterations and the role of coexisting conditions (i.e., kidney, lung, metabolic, etc) • Apply rational decisions for diagnostic testing in patients with suspected HFpEF • Discuss currently available therapies for HFpEF • Identify potential new therapies for HFpEF and know how to select patients • Improve ability to practice “precision”, patient-centered medicine for patients with HFpEF • Interact with experts in small group discussion
