In the process of providing care for others, we must care for ourselves. As clinicians, we frequently don’t do a great job focusing on our own wellness. Here’s our chance to set the bar high.

The North American Center for Continuing Medical Education (NACCME), a subsidiary of HMP Communications Holdings, LLC, today announced the program lineup for its 5th annual Cardiometabolic Risk Summit (CRS) Fall taking place October 14-16 in Las Vegas, NV.

Launched in 2012, CRS Fall is the nation’s flagship conference on cardiometabolic education for primary care clinicians. The meeting attracts an average of 800 clinicians annually, including primary care physicians, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, registered dietitians, registered nurses, and other allied professionals.

Highlights of the 2016 scientific agenda include a Clinician Wellness Pre-Conference on Thursday, October 13. In response to growing concerns about the dangers of burnout and its link to the decline in quality of patient care, the accredited pre-conference was designed to help busy clinicians restore balance in their lives and joy in their practices.

Wellness will be a focus throughout the conference. In addition to a variety of healthy meals and snacks served during the meeting, complimentary wellness breaks and mindful meditation will be offered. As faculty member Sandra Jain, MA, PsyD, LPC from the University of Texas at Austin points out, “In the process of providing care for others, we must care for ourselves. As clinicians, we frequently don’t do a great job focusing on our own wellness. Here’s our chance to set the bar high.”

Additionally, new sessions focusing on cardiometabolic comorbidities have been added to the scientific program. Sessions include, but are not limited to:

  • Polycystic Ovary Syndrome and Insulin Resistance
  • Cardiometabolic Risk in the Cancer Survivor
  • Cardiometabolic Risk and Impact on Bone Health
  • Sleep and Cardiometabolic Risk

Says Co-Chair Daniel Einhorn, MD from University of California San Diego and Scripps Whittier Diabetes Institute, “The cardiometabolic field is in a great state of flux – new medications, technologies, guidelines, even paradigms of care. Speakers present cutting-edge data and provide practical takeaways. The variety of dynamic session formats allow for interaction among attendees and speakers – that is truly unique to CRS.”

Clinicians can earn up to 32 CME/CNE/CPE credits by registering for the Maximum Value Package, which includes the pre-conference, the main conference, the syllabus, and CRS On-Demand (session recordings available after the conference).
