CommonSpirit Physician Enterprise TX Division CME Event
Our objective is to provide our Texas division physicians, physician assistants, and nurse practitioners education that will update them on common clinical issues such as pain management, HCC coding, pre-operative patient evaluation, tobacco use cessation, obesity screening and treatment among other topics which will be interesting and informative to a proud range of clinical specialists. We also plan to provide a CME that fills the TMB's ethics requirement.
This activity is intended for physicians, nurse practitioners, and physicians of all specialties within the CommonSpirit Health Texas Division Physician Enterprise.
At the conclusion of this activity, the participants should be able to:
- Identify medications which provide evidence-based treatment for pain and how to appropriately document the need for pain medications in the patient's chart.
- Appropriately screen for tobacco use and counsel, treat, and/or refer patients for tobacco use cessation.
- Discuss the prevalence of obesity in our communities, the impact on patient's health, and the most up to date treatment options for obesity including medical, surgical, and lifestyle treatment options.
- Summarize the appropriate evidence-based and ethical approach to preoperative screening tests for patients with a large spectrum of personal medical issues who are undergoing a myriad of procedures.
