Randomized clinical trials and meta-analyses of research studies that have immediate implications for practice will be the focus of the 6th Annual Primary Care Evidence-Based Medicine Update “Evidence that Matters,” Friday-Saturday, October 27-28, at the Cleveland Clinic’s Administrative Campus Auditorium 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 endeavor 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.
Primary care 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 Gary Ferenchick, MD, professor of medicine at Michigan State University; John Hickner, MD, MSc, professor and chair of the Department of Family Medicine at the University of Illinois, Chicago; Mark Ebell, MD, MS, associate professor at The University of Georgia; and several Cleveland Clinic faculty members.
Attendees at this meeting will learn how to:
- Summarize the most recently published data from research and clinical trials that have clinical implications for primary care medicine
- Discuss the evidence on new, revised, and standard treatment approaches for a variety of topics as they relate to primary care practitioners
- Describe updates in clinical decision tools for screening and differential diagnosis of diseases
- Review revisions in clinical practice guidelines and evaluate their clinical practice implications for primary care practitioners.
