Overview

Primary care clinicians must be highly skilled in preventive medicine, cardiovascular risk factors, day-to-day clinical problems, chronic disease management, communication skills, and optimal use of diagnostic tests and new medications. Health disparities and the care of vulnerable patients are a central part of our daily practice as we try to maximize quality, safety, equity, and value. Close collaboration with other specialists, inpatient colleagues, and diverse teams of health professionals is essential for the care of our complex patients. In addition to a full discussion of common problems in primary care and preventive medicine, this course will also focus on clinical skills and problem-solving in dermatology, women’s health, clinical nutrition, neurology, oncology, infectious diseases, and interprofessional collaboration. The course will utilize formal lectures, case discussions, practical workshops, an audience response system, questions and answers, a detailed syllabus, and on-demand access to course recordings. Remote learning opportunities will also be available.

Target Audience
This course, chaired by Dr. Robert B. Baron and taught by some of UCSF’s best teachers, is designed for practicing internists, family practitioners, advance practice providers, and all other health professionals interested in providing high quality primary care.

You must tune in to live conference (in person or remotely) to claim CME credit.

Objectives

The purpose of this course is to increase competence and improve clinician practice in primary care. We specifically anticipate improvements in skills and strategies to:

  • Implement new guidelines in office-based preventive medicine including cancer prevention, vaccines, and screening and management of cardiac risk factors;
  • Develop up-to-date strategies for common office problems including hypertension, lipid disorders, diabetes, obesity, coronary heart disease, heart failure, chronic kidney disease, obesity, headache, stroke, dementia, common infections, and covid-19;
  • Manage common problems in women’s health including prevention of cervical and endometrial cancer, breast disorders, incontinence, menopause, and vaginal and vulvar disorders;
  • Diagnose and treat common and skin disorders, skin infections, and skin cancer;
  • Counsel patients to improve eating habits, lose weight, increase physical activity, and use new obesity medications;
  • Perform an effective problem-based history and physical examination for common complaints in dermatology, neurology, and gynecology;
  • Perform common office procedures in dermatology and office gynecology;
  • Understand the best initial management strategies for common cancers, current uses of new cancer medications, use of molecular and genetic testing in oncology, and best practices in prognostication;
  • Develop best practices in patient communication, shared decision-making, and interprofessional teamwork;
  • Critically evaluate the medical literature, practice guidelines, and new medications, and apply them to clinical practice;
  • Address health disparities in health and healthcare;
  • Increase the quality of care and decrease medical costs.
