OhioHealth Primary Care Conference
Academic/Research, Family Practice, Internal Medicine, Nurse Practitioner, Osteopathic Manipulative Medicine, Pediatrics, Physician Assistant
This two-day event with multiple speaker course was developed in cooperation with the academic faculty of Doctors, Grant, Riverside, and Dublin Hospitals' Primary Care Residency Programs to provide an annual in-depth exposure and review of basic primary care topics. These areas of adult and pediatric knowledge are felt to be best addressed by an in-depth review since it is difficult to cover this material in a comprehensive and cohesive fashion otherwise. Many primary care physicians in the area benefit greatly from a periodic review of this material. The survey feedback we have received from similar previous courses indicate a need for yearly updates in primary care medicine. This year’s speakers and topics were chosen based on current environmental trends in medicine as well as feedback from last year’s evaluations.
1. Discuss the latest recommendations for common conditions presenting to the PCP (Hypercholesterolemia, non-COPD lung disease, and Preadmission Testing), as well as conditions that have emerging treatments (diabetes and cardiovascular disease).
2. Develop manual skills in Osteopathic Manipulation and Ultrasound use.
3. List salient points regarding trending topics in medicine, including the use of B Vitamins, Male sexual dysfunction, and the De-escalation of Medical Therapy.
4. List techniques to better their precepting skills.
This program qualifies for 14.5 AOA Category 1-A credits.
