Conference Details : This three day intensive conference, held on June 26-28, 2020 in Charleston, South Carolina, addresses all the issues confronting clinicians who treat challenging patients with diabetes, hypertension, and dyslipidemia and how to apply this knowledge to everyday practice. Over the past several years controversies in the appropriate level of Hemoglobin A1C, BP, and LDL-Cholesterol for outcome improvement continue to occur in Type 2 diabetes, Hypertension, and Dyslipidemia, respectively. Despite the results from the ACCORD, VADT, and ADVANCE studies suggesting the benefits on reducing macrovascular disease with a more intensive strategy for A1C reduction remains unclear, individualized A1C targets for those with newly diagnosed diabetes compared to those with long standing disease are often recommended. In addition, controversy continues to exist in cholesterol control as recent guidelines suggest that one should decide on the intensity of statin-based therapy for outcome improvement in those at risk for or with established ASCVD rather than a specific goal of LDL-cholesterol reduction. Finally, the recent SPRINT trial has suggested that lower targets for BP reduction than ever achieved before can and should be achieved in high-risk adults with hypertension. This conference will address these and other issues confronting the clinician who treats challenging patients with diabetes, hypertension, and dyslipidemia. The participant will learn the most current information on these issues and will be able to apply these important clinical principles back to their everyday practice to improve the care of their patients. Program Objectives As a result of this educational activity, participants should be better able to: Formulate an efficient and effective assessment and monitoring plan of a patients condition as it relates to hypertension, diabetes, and dyslipidemia. Utilize current guidelines in the diagnosis and management of diabetes, hypertension, and dyslipidemia. Develop individualized interventions and treatment strategies for patients presenting with hypertension, diabetes, andor dyslipidemia that will lead to the reduction of modifiable risk factors and improved long term outcomes. Target Audience This activity is designed for physicians specializing in Internal Medicine, Family or General Practice, Geriatric Medicine, Endocrinology, Lipidology and Hypertension Specialists. Healthcare professionals including physician assistants and nurse practitioners specializing in these areas or those managing patients with Hypertension, Diabetes, andor Hyperlipidemia, alone or in combination, may benefit from this activity. Tuition: $655.00 for Physicians $610.00 for Residents and other healthcare professionals
