Needs Statement

The aim of this activity is to provide updates and advancements in healthcare that can set the stage for novel methodology in terms of delivery of care. Topics such as Artificial Intelligence, Atypical Diabetes, Long Covid Syndrome, and Point of Care Ultrasound are unconventional health topics. Thus, providers need to learn about standards of care, ethical considerations, and rationale behind adopting these practices. Providers will also learn to evaluate recommendations and guidelines for care of atypical health conditions in order to construct appropriate management plans for these less known health issues. With the emergence of point of care ultrasound in ambulatory medicine, this hands-on workshop will provide skills and procedural competencies for its utilization in ambulatory practices.

Learning Objectives

  • At the conclusion of this activity, the participant(s) will be able to:
  • Determine best practices and updates for advancing healthcare with novel technologies
  • Apply procedural competencies and skills towards providing a comprehensive primary care platform for patients
  • Implement evidence-based management plans for patients with atypical presentations
  • Employ high quality and patient safety standards in clinical care
  • Support need for methodology to consider ethical and practical implications of clinical Artificial Intelligence

Target Audience

This activity is for Primary Care Providers, Advanced Practice Professionals, Medical Students, Residents, and Fellows.
