August 25 - August 26, 2017 MJ1803 Men's Health Update
Register   Details

Final Week to Register! Online Registration will close on Thursday, August 24th at 5pm Pacific Time.

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 care 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, Bladder, and Testicular Cancer, Hypogonadism and Testosterone Replacement, Sexual Dysfunction, Voiding Dysfunction, Kidney Stones and Genital Pain Syndromes. 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.

This is the 45th year that the Department of Family Medicine at the University of Washington School of Medicine is offering five days of educational opportunities for family medicine and primary care 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.

This year, we are providing a special opportunity for all attendees to receive the All Patients Safe Suicide Prevention Training with no additional cost. This can be used toward the new required 6 hours for health care providers in the state of Washington. An initial plenary lecture and subsequent 2-hour workshop will cover key areas. Participants will be able to complete the remaining 3 hours of training using online training modules.

We will also be offering an additional evening program that can be taken on its own, or in addition to the full program. This Infectious Disease Update takes place Monday-Thursday, from 5:00-6:30 p.m. Experts will provide updates in the changing world of ID that will impact your practice. Our focus will be incorporating the latest knowledge and techniques in your busy primary care workflow.

November 2 - November 3, 2017 MJ1813 Prevention of Sudden Cardiac Death in Athletes
Register   Details

Sudden cardiac death (SCD) is the leading cause of death in competitive athletes during sports and exercise. The goal of cardiovascular screening is to identify underlying cardiac disorders predisposing to SCD to allow risk reduction through individualized and disease-specific medical management. Electrocardiogram (ECG) screening increases the detection of cardiac disorders at risk for SCD but requires a physician infrastructure trained in athlete-specific ECG interpretation standards as well as skilled cardiology resources to conduct proper secondary testing of ECG abnormalities. This conference features world experts in sports cardiology to review physiologic versus pathologic ECG findings in athletes, the evaluation of ECG abnormalities, and disease-specific management in athletes diagnosed with a pathologic cardiac disorder. Conference workshops will examine and apply consensus recommendations from the 2017 “International Criteria for ECG Interpretation in Athletes.” This conference addresses critical knowledge gaps to improve the cardiovascular care provided to competitive athletes.
