Randomized clinical trials and meta-analyses of research studies that have immediate implications for practice will be the focus of the 5th Annual Primary Care Evidence-Based Medicine Update “Evidence that Matters,” Friday-Saturday, October 28-29, in the auditorium on the Cleveland Clinic’s Administrative Campus in Beachwood, OH.
Our extraordinary speakers have scoured literature for current evidence and will deliver it in a most engaging fashion. The past year alone has brought significant changes in recommendations for hypertension targets and statin use. This update provides a solution for primary care physicians who struggle to absorb all the information constantly distributed in medical literature.
This conference compresses most of the important evidence-based findings into one jam-packed, easily digestible, and fun conference. The format is unique, and the presenters are highly experienced and entertaining. Primary care physicians will enjoy short presentations that review recent findings from pertinent clinical research, with a specific focus on research studies that have immediate implications for practice.
Family physicians, more than any other health care professionals, are required to know the most recent practices in a wide array of medical specialties. Area family physicians, general internists, nurses, and nurse practitioners are encouraged to attend this educational activity.
Featured speakers include Henry Barry, MD, MS, professor and acting chair of the Department of Family Medicine at Michigan State University; Donald Ford, MD, vice president of medical operations at Cleveland Clinic Hillcrest Hospital and assistant professor of medicine at Lerner College of Medicine at Case Western University; John Hickner, MD, MS, professor and chair of the Department of Family Medicine at the University of Illinois, Urbana; Mark Ebell, MD, associate professor at College of Public Health; and several Cleveland Clinic faculty members.
