Attendee Profile Approximately 150 physicians and primary care healthcare professionals are expected to attend.

The faculty will provide an engaging, rapid-fire review of the most important research publications of the past two years. They will present and critically appraise new research evidence and meta-analyses that will either change your practice or confirm that your current approaches are supported by solid evidence from randomized trials and other high quality studies.
Primary care physicians, more than any other health care provider, are required to be knowledgeable of the most recent practices in a wide array of medical specialties. These physicians face an almost overwhelming task of staying abreast of current research and assessment for clinical implications. This CME activity is designed to address primary care clinicians’ knowledge and educational needs through short presentations that review and analyze recent findings from pertinent clinical research, with a specific focus on research studies that have immediate implications for practice.
