Join us at Cleveland Clinic’s 9th Annual Primary Care Update: Challenges in the Post Pandemic Landscape

Primary care clinicians face the almost overwhelming task of staying abreast of current research in the various medical disciplines and assessing it for clinical implications. This challenge, in turn, creates knowledge and competency gaps in many primary care clinicians.

This CME-certified, live stream symposium is designed to review best practices that highlight the latest therapies, procedures, and diagnostics in primary care that are changing the direction of care for this patient population during a post pandemic landscape. You will be offered updates on treatment strategies on common conditions, including diabetes, migraine, and mood disorders, as well as the potential challenges in cardiovascular and respiratory care, as a result of COVID-19. In addition, our program will incorporate conversations on value based medicine, community engagement, and wellness.

By Participating, You Will Be Able To:

  • Summarize the most recently published data from research and clinical trials that have clinical implications for primary care medicine.
  • Describe the integration of primary care in the public health landscape as they apply to clinical practice, and debate how political activism affects primary care.
  • Describe methods for using telemedicine to improve the practitioner-patient experience.
  • Critically review the evidence on the impact of COVID-19 on the cardiovascular and respiratory systems, especially long-term complications and recovery.
  • Compare the evidence supporting wellness initiatives, including diet plans and lifestyle changes.
  • Provide an overview of value-based medicine and its potential impact on community-based care.
  • Review the clinical implications of recently published research on topical areas of interest to primary care practitioners, including migraine medicine, heart failure, assessment and treatment of mood disorders and depression, and the development of care plans for diabetes.

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.
