Target Audience and Needs
Physicians, fellows, residents, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, nurses, and other healthcare professionals need to receive regular updates on professional guidelines, advances in basic science and clinical research, and emerging treatment modalities and management strategies for patients with endocrine disorders. The series will explore new models of multidisciplinary care in the field, especially as it relates to patients with cardiometabolic diseases such as obesity and diabetes. The series aims to expand the knowledge of learners, promote adherence to evidence-based guidelines, enhance the quality of endocrinology care, disseminate best clinical practices, and improve patient outcomes.
Educational methods will include lectures, case presentations, literature review, and panel discussion.
At the conclusion of the sessions, the participants should be able to:
- Recognize the implications of results from recently reported basic science and clinical research trials.
- Perceive the differences between the agents used to treat endocrine diseases and their individual benefits.
- Identify competing professional responsibilities that affect the level of patient care and address them.
- Translate professional guidelines and therapeutic recommendations into clinical practice.
- Adopt a multidisciplinary approach to endocrinology care when appropriate.
Participants may be asked to complete a session evaluation.
