Financial Acumen for Physician Leaders
  • AMA
  • Attendance
$0.00 The primary role of finance is to plan for, acquire and utilize resources to maximize efficiency and create value for the organization’s mission. During this activity, the functions of finance in a physician enterprise will be reviewed, including the process for budget preparation. Financial statements, key performance indicators, and key drivers of revenue and expenses will also be discussed.Learning objectives At the end of this educational activity, participants should be able to:
Have We Achieved Pareto Optimality or Pareto Efficiency in Transplantation
  • Transplantation
  • ACPE - Pharmacist
  • ACPE - Pharmacy Technician
  • AMA
  • ANCC
  • CCMC - Ethics
$0.00 Pareto optimality is a formally defined concept used to judge the efficiency of a distribution when shared goods or resources are allocated to many. Pareto efficiency occurs when all resources are exhausted, and any change in allocation will make at least one party worse off. During this activity, Dr. Abecassis will discuss similarities and differences between Pareto optimality, equity, and social optimality in order to provide a conceptual framework to better understand the dynamics and behaviors we are currently witnessing in national debates around liver allocation.
The Fight Against the Opioid Epidemic
  • ACPE - Pharmacist
  • ACPE - Pharmacy Technician
  • AMA
  • ANCC
  • Attendance
  • CCMC - Ethics
$0.00 Opioid abuse is a serious public health issue. Drug overdose is a leading cause of injury death in the United States, and there is a clear correlation between opioid-prescribing rates and overdose death rates. This fact accentuates the importance of prescribing guidelines that encourage the use of opioids only when benefits outweigh risks and that promote safe use when opioids are needed.
Cardiovascular Disease: Guidelines and Challenges in Patient Management
  • Disease Management
  • ACPE - Pharmacist
  • ACPE - Pharmacy Technician
  • AMA
  • ANCC
  • Attendance
  • CCMC - General
$0.00 In 2013, the American College of Cardiology (ACC) and the American Heart Association (AHA), developed new guidelines for the treatment of blood cholesterol and risk assessment of atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease (ASCVD). The new guidelines recommend the use of statin therapy as the medication of choice in ASCVD risk reduction. This was a major shift from the old approach, creating controversies and a state of confusion.
Chronic Kidney Disease Continuum: The Relationship Between Obesity, Diabetes, Cardiovascular Disease and Transplant
  • Disease Management
  • ACPE - Pharmacist
  • ACPE - Pharmacy Technician
  • AMA
  • ANCC
  • Attendance
  • CCMC - General
$0.00 Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is associated with an increased risk for cardiovascular disease, progression to end-stage-renal disease (ESRD) and potentially the need for a kidney transplant. This session will explore the relationship between obesity, diabetes, kidney disease, cardiovascular disease and transplant; the challenges of meeting evidence-based guidelines for managing CKD; and the benefits of addressing multiple risk factors simultaneously and the impact on outcomes.
Current and Future Applications of Gene Therapy
  • Disease Management
  • ACPE - Pharmacist
  • ACPE - Pharmacy Technician
  • AMA
  • ANCC
  • Attendance
  • CCMC - General
$0.00 Gene therapy involves altering the genes inside the body's cells in an effort to treat or stop disease. Either a faulty gene is replaced or a new gene is added in an attempt to cure disease or improve the body's ability to fight disease. Important medical advances in gene therapy have been achieved during the past few years, with clinical translational trials underway for a wide range of deadly diseases.
Diabetes: Improvements in Prevention and Care
  • Disease Management
  • ACPE - Pharmacist
  • ACPE - Pharmacy Technician
  • AMA
  • ANCC
  • Attendance
  • CCMC - General
$0.00 In the United States, an estimated 86 million people are living with prediabetes and 29 million are living with diabetes. Lifestyle management is a fundamental aspect of diabetes care. There is strong and consistent evidence that obesity management can delay the progression of diabetes, and screening and interventions can limit organ damage. Therefore, diabetes patients require initial and ongoing evaluation for diabetes and its related complications.
Advances in CAR T-Cell Immunotherapy in Leukemia
  • Oncology
  • ACPE - Pharmacist
  • ACPE - Pharmacy Technician
  • AMA
  • ANCC
  • Attendance
  • CCMC - General
$0.00 Chimeric antigen receptor (CAR) T-cell therapy continues to have impressive showings in patients with aggressive hematologic malignancies with no other promising treatment options. This session will discuss outcomes when using T-cell immunotherapy against relapsed or refractory acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL).Learning ObjectivesAt the end of this educational activity, participants should be able to:
Predicting Risk: Current Research and New Therapies for Optimal Management of Colorectal Cancer
  • Oncology
  • ACPE - Pharmacist
  • ACPE - Pharmacy Technician
  • AMA
  • ANCC
  • Attendance
  • CCMC - General
$0.00 Colorectal cancer is a leading cause of cancer-related deaths in the United States. Research is always going on in this area of medicine, leading to great progress in recent discoveries of new and improved treatment and screening strategies. Tests have been developed to find genetic changes associated with colorectal cancer and to predict the risk of cancer recurrence. Identifying these genes can help doctors and individuals decide on their treatment options to extend survival and improve quality of life.
