Needs Assessment: Much of physician focus over the last two years has been on rapidly learning as much as we can about COVID-19. We have focused on revolutionizing our practices to safely care for patients during a pandemic and safely prevent and treat COVID-19 and its complications while continuing our patients' primary care amongst these challenges. We have battled misinformation while gaining new pandemic-specific information at a record pace. Two years later, it is time to catch up on primary care medical education that may have fallen to the wayside during the pandemic. We are experiencing life in person again. We can now refocus our attention on primary care medicine outside the pandemic.
Program Objectives: At the completion of this seminar, attendees will be able to understand and apply new and updated primary care guidelines published in recent the last two years. They will also be able to review and discuss exigent disease processes, treatment modalities, and patient care measures.
