    Program Overview

    The KCU Update in Medicine is designed to address common conditions and timely issues relevant to health-care professionals, particularly those in primary care. Topics focus on specific practice issues and disease states relative to primary care physicians. Hands-on demonstrations will include simulations and OMT trainings.

    Global Learning Objectives

    At the end of this conference, participants will be able to (within the capabilities of their practice):

    • Identify one clinical update applicable to their patient population
    • Utilize one point-of-service electronic resource
    • Provide patients with electronic resources specific to individual patient care

    Target Audience

    The target audience is physicians, physicians in training, physician assistants, nurse practitioners and other health-care professionals.

    Accreditation

    Participants are required to complete a pre-test, a post-test and an evaluation in order to receive continuing education credit. Participants may only claim credit for sessions in which they participate. A certificate of completion will be provided to participants based on documentation of actual attendance, completion of a pre-test, a post-test, an evaluation and payment in full.
