OVERALL OBJECTIVES: Following this course, the participant should be able to appraise the epidemiology, demographics and common clinical presentations for the diseases and disorders discussed; construct an appropriate history, physical exam and laboratory evaluation to develop cost-effective and accurate diagnosis; manage as well as employ appropriate follow-up and/or specialty referral for the diseases and disorders presented. 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. Emergency Medicine is a specialty that has a high rate of utilization and change in standards of care. It is often the point of entry for medical care; therefore, this course was designed to be of value to all practitioners at the level of a practicing physician in an effort to keep them abreast of current clinical practices in Emergency Medicine.
