|OVERALL OBJECTIVES: Following this course, the participant should be able to develop an approach to the patient with metabolic disorders to arrive at a cost-effective diagnosis; apply a treatment plan that considers lifestyles, medications and specialty referral or monitoring needs; identify patients likely to develop complications and determine the long-term needs as well as resource management. This activity is expected to result in improved competence in making appropriate diagnosis and providing effective treatment and referral or follow-up care with the overall goal of improving patient outcomes. |
The emphasis will be on aligning physician behavior with current guidelines and evidence-based medicine, as indicated within each topic’s specific objectives. Since Internal Medicine takes a lead role in medicine in general, this course was designed for all practitioners at the level of a practicing physician to provide a review and update in their application of medical knowledge and practice strategies to diagnose, treat and improve patient care.
