Course Description

The clinical challenge of primary care lies not only in the breadth of the specialty, but also in the need to stay current in practice areas that are provided. This two-day program provides the participant with a balanced blend of core primary care topics coupled with updates on recent advances in a variety of specialty and subspecialty areas. Following completion of this program, the participant should be better able to:

  • Evaluate and treat hypertension, osteoporosis, gout, vaginitis and low-back pain
  • Manage patients with heart failure, chronic kidney disease, irritable bowel syndrome, low-back pain and common orthopaedic problems
  • Discuss the current role of bone marrow transplantation, as well as recent advances in the management of breast cancer and pancreatic cancer

Accreditation

The Office of Continuing Medical Education, David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education to provide continuing medical education for physicians.

The Office of Continuing Medical Education, David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA designates this live activity for a maximum of 14.5 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits TM. Physicians should claim only credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.

Disclosures

The FDA has issued a concept paper which classifies commercial support of scientific and educational programs as promotional unless it can be affirmed that the program is "truly independent" and free of commercial influence. In addition to independence, the FDA requires that nonpromotional, commercially supported education be objective, balanced, and scientifically rigorous. The policy further states that all potential conflicts of interest of the CME staff and faculty be fully disclosed to the program's participants. In addition, Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education policy now mandates that the provider adequately manages all identified potential conflicts of interest prior to the program. We at UCLA fully endorse the letter and spirit of these concepts.
