Program Overview

This CME activity is designed to update primary care clinicians in rapidly changing therapeutic areas. In 2016, Continuing Education Company introduced the inaugural conference on “Emergency and Urgent Care Medicine for the Primary Care Provider” held in San Diego, CA at the Hilton San Diego Resort and Spa on October 7-9, 2016. This activity is comprised of 21 recorded video lectures from the conference, focusing on the evaluation and treatment of acute emergency conditions and best practices for use in a clinical setting. Topics include: Opioid Prescribing, Fractures, Concussions, STIs, Acute Stroke Care, Headaches, Procedures, ICD/LVAD Essentials, Febrile Seizures, Zika and more.

Urgent Care medicine involves the delivery of immediate medical care for the treatment of acute and chronic illness and injury. Practitioners providing urgent care need to be proficient in evaluating and caring for patients presenting with a broad range of acute medical problems. As a result, urgent care medicine requires clinicians to have an extensive scope of knowledge and expertise in the evaluation and treatment of acute medical conditions in all age groups.

This activity focuses on timely and practical issues involving emergency and urgent care medicine. Sessions will provide the latest evidence-based information on the evaluation and treatment of acute emergency conditions. Each session will provide best practices for use in an outpatient clinical setting.
