August 28 - August 29, 2015 Men's Health Update

With the aging of the American population and increases in access to affordable health care, primary care providers are increasingly caring for urologic disease. Men are disproportionately afflicted by urologic disease, and “Men’s Health” is a growing medical arena where specialized knowledge is required. The diagnosis and management of many urologic diseases have been greatly influenced by recent pharmacological, surgical and technological advances. One of the greatest challenges providers face is staying abreast with the many dynamic changes in this field. An internationally acclaimed faculty has been assembled to provide this update, with presentations on topics such as prostate cancer, bladder cancer, hypogonadism and testosterone replacement, erectile dysfunction, voiding dysfunction and kidney stones. During the plenary sessions, the registrants will have the opportunity to participate in question and answer sessions. In addition, an emphasis on case presentations with faculty participation will enhance the practical value of the course.

September 14 - September 18, 2015 43rd Annual Advances in Family Practice and Primary Care

This is the 43rd year that the Department of Family Medicine at the University of Washington School of Medicine is offering five days of educational opportunities for family practice and primary health care providers.

Each year our goal is to provide current information about practice skills and the diagnosis and management of a broad array of primary health care issues within family medicine, cardiology, endocrinology, psychiatry and behavioral science, neurology, sports medicine, women’s health, pulmonology, nephrology, infectious disease, chronic pain, pediatrics and gastroenterology. Course topics are chosen with four criteria in mind:

• Suggestions from previous course attendees
• Distribution of topics should reflect the content of primary care
• Recent breakthroughs that may have significant impact on primary care practice and health outcomes
• Controversial topics where medical opinions may vary or are in flux

In addition, course content includes information about practice transformation in line with new health care legislation to help attendees know more about becoming a patient-centered medical home and working within an accountable care organization.

We offer a wide array of interactive workshops to reinforce and deepen content that is shared in large group plenary sessions. We are also integrating educational methods that engage learners and deepen learning during plenary sessions. We offer two ABFM SAMs (Self-Assessment Modules). These SAMs will help interested participants meet recertification requirements of the American Board of Family Medicine. These SAMs are applicable to ABFM MC-FP enrollees and are offered at no extra charge, although registration is limited.
