Scripps Health’s Primary Care Summer Conference was designed by primary care physicians for primary care physicians and the interdisciplinary care team and will present content from their unique perspective. This important CME conference will educate and promote improved patient outcomes in a broad range of therapeutic areas commonly encountered in the busy primary care practice. In addition to an overview of the history and current science of a variety of specialty areas, content will be presented in a very practical, patient-focused manner relevant to the specific primary care setting and challenges.
After attending live activity, participants should be able to:
- Integrate current trends in preventive health care into patient care strategies.
- Effectively discuss with patients their personal responsibilities in prevention and treatment.
- Employ new interdisciplinary care team strategies that enhance the prevention, diagnosis and management of various medical conditions encountered in the office practice.
- Access and/or recommend resources for both physicians and patients to acquire additional information pertinent to a range of therapeutic areas.
- Manage the specialist referral process: assess when to refer, recognize what the specialized treatment will consist of, and determine the role of the primary care physician in cohesive care and follow-up.
Scripps Health is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) to provide continuing medical education for physicians.
