Objectives

NARRATIVE DESCRIPTION

Following this course, the participant should be able to formulate a practical approach to common disorders found in the hospitalized adult patient; determine the diagnostic tests that can be used to determine the severity of the patient's problem and make an accurate diagnosis; apply the various treatment options available and recognize when to treat and when to call for a specialist.  This activity is expected to result in improved competence in making an appropriate diagnosis and providing effective treatment and consultation with the overall goal of improving patient outcomes.

 

The emphasis will be on aligning physician behavior with current guidelines and evidence-based medicine, as indicated within each topic’s specific objectives.  As recent advances in diagnostic modalities and treatments make it necessary to improve competence in an inpatient setting, this course was designed as an update for all practitioners at the level of a practicing physician in the hospital setting.
