Gout is a common clinical encounter in primary care. However, it is often challenging to get these patients under control and to comply with lifestyle modifications, abortive and prophylactic regimen. We will review the pathophysiology of gout, common triggers and comorbidities and devise a targeted treatment plan based on the patients comorbidities. My goal is to encourage a collaborative approach in coaching these patients and to help them achieve a better quality of life.

Upon completion of this program, participants will be able to:

  1. Differentiate gout from other musculoskeletal conditions based on clinical presentation, individual risk factors and diagnostic studies
  2. Apply knowledge of anatomy and physiology to describe the pathophysiology of gout
  3. Devise an individualized, targeted treatment plan for gout including lifestyle modification and pharmacologic intervention
