Friday, October 18 3:45 pm to 4:50 pm

ABOUT THE LECTURE:
Case studies of patients with multiple and complex problems will be discussed by a panel of clinicians of different specialities and disciplines to demonstrate the value of and possible methods to engage in collaborate care for more optimal outcomes.

Current Status: There is increasing evidence to support the important role of inflammation in many if not all of the chronic diseases affecting more of our population, with occurrences at earlier and earlier ages. Chronic inflammation may exist decades prior to the expression of a disease state. The causes of chronic disease are many and not necessarily identifiable or treatable by any one speciality or discipline. Even with advanced knowledge and training, practitioners continue to work within their silos achieving beneficial, but less than optimal results. 

Ideal Practice:Practitioners of different disciplines will increase their knowledge of and protocols for identifying and treating and preventing chronic inflammation. They will also learn what other practitioners of other disciplines offer for more optimal treatment. 

Educational Need: With the time needed to keep apace with advancing knowledge in one’s field of practice, there is an increasing awareness of the need for a more collaborative approach for some complex problems. These case studies will demonstrate the value and methods of collaboration, as will as communication tools …

Learning Objectives

  1. Learn how clinicians of other disciplines would offer treatment.
  2. Understand how collaboration addresses overlapping and underlying conditions of chronic inflammation.
  3. Gain insight on communication tools for better diagnosis and treatment.
