Audio-Digest Foundation Announces the Release of Family Practice Volume 61, Issue 10: News and Views to Improve Daily Practice.
The goals of this program are to improve management of common conditions treated in primary care, and to improve management of illicit drug use. After hearing and assimilating this program, the clinician will be better able to:
1. Review the roles of pertussis and rotavirus immunization and antibiotic use in children.
2. Counsel overweight patients and parents of overweight children about diet and exercise.
3. Weigh risks and benefits of primary prevention modalities, such as use of aspirin for heart disease and cancer screening.
4. Differentiate among commonly used illicit drugs, such as cocaine, crystal methamphetamine, and marijuana.
5. Screen patients for substance use and intervene appropriately.
The original programs were presented by Frank J. Domino, MD, Professor of Family Medicine and Community Health, University of Massachusetts Medical School, Worcester, and Ronald Lim, MD, Assistant Professor, Department of Psychiatry and Family Practice, Faculty of Medicine, University of Calgary, AB.
