Family practitioners, more than any other health care providers, are required to be knowledgeable of the most recent practices in a wide array of medical specialties.
Plan to attend this activity designed to address primary care clinicians’ knowledge and educational needs through short presentations that review and analyze recent findings from pertinent clinical research, with a specific focus on research studies that have immediate implications for practice. Most of the studies reviewed will be randomized clinical trials and meta-analyses, which are considered the highest level of evidence for clinical effectiveness.
Who Should Attend?
This activity is designed for family physicians, general internists, nurses, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, and other health care professionals who have an interest in primary care.
